Hello - My sister is in town with her 2000 Passat VR6

Her oil is low and dirty and I was going to change it for her.

Does the engine take 502.00 oil?

Any recommendations for oil that is on amazon?

she lives in the
San Francisco bay area so not too cool and not too hot

I believe it takes 5W40, would 0W40 work

Lots of oil on amazon is not in stock

I found this however the back of the label does not list 502.00

I have no clue but does your sister have an owners manual? Is there a sticker in the engine compartment with the oil specs? If all else fails try and fine a manual on line or go to the Mobil1 web site and do a look up recommendation for you sisters car and engine.

M1 0W-40 FS is a great choice.

The M1 0W-40 would work great in that engine.
Yep.

Yep.

According to the Amazon link you provided, there's a 2 to 5 week delivery time. Castrol Euro 5W-40 might be more readily accessible if you want to run Castrol. But Mobil 1 Euro 5W-40 or 0W-40 would work well too. Also, Pennzoil 5W-40. You have several good choices.
