Oil in a Volkswagen Passat 2001 1.8t
We used 10w30 and oil pressure light keeps
coming on at low speeds goes off at highway
speed. Please help what so we do? Did we use
the wrong oil?
well your first mistake was using the wrong oil for the wrong engine. Who ever told you to put 10w30 into your car was a complete idiot. The cars manual and the oil cap should both state 5w40 FULL Synthetic engine oil *Only* If your piston rings and valves are not already fried they will be in the near future. Get the oil out of your car and use some engine oil clear Lucas if you can and clean that oil out best as you can. Walmart or canadain tire should have the oil your looking for. It will be castrols 5w40 full syntheic. The car requires 6 L of oil i think it may be 5 L for the 1.8L engines.
