    New label for GC? Not German any more?????????

    All, Just came back from AutoZone in an unsuccessful quest to get someone to help me diagnose my A/C troubles. While I was there, I looked at the 'wall of oil'. It appears that Castrol has just gone to a slightly different label design on the Syntec line and, more importantly......... Where it...

    CH rated oil in a gasser???

    I was all set to switch to Rotella T Synthetic at the next OC on my 2.0L VW Jetta. Then I read something on the board that inferred that I needed to be sure to use CI rated HDEOs in gasoline engines. Should I NOT use the CH bottles of Rotella that Wally World still has on the shelf??? Any...

    Motorcraft 5w-20? 2.0 VW Jetta and 2.2L Ecotec.....

    All, I've been reading all the recent posts on the MC oils. Picked up the bottle a few times at WalMart and then set it back down. My only reservation is about trying the 5w-20 instead of using the 5w-30 that is recommended for both engines listed in the subject line. (Been using Castrol GTX...

I intend to do another drain, filter change and fill in the near future. My question is: Does anyone know the capacity of the torque...

    ATF change for Saturn L200. Can I mix dino w/synthetic?

    My thought process was that SOME synthetic is better that NO synthetic. Since the wife won't let me spring for the $50+ it would cost to buy all synthetic, I was curious about just getting a quart or two to go with the balance of the 8 quarts I need. Her car has 50k miles on it and this will be...

    VW manual transmission. Can I use Mobil 1????

    Based on the feedback I've seen on BITOG, I'm trying to figure out if Mobil 1 is appropriate for my gearbox, or if I should definitively use the Redline fluid. I can readily acquire the Mobil 1 product, but will have to order the Redline. Any opinions here??? I suppose this goes back to the...
