    “Oil Service Now” after recent change.

    Can't seem to find if this has been discussed already. I have a 2018 T32 150bhp 73k miles VW which every 300 miles the Oil Service Now warning comes up I reset the Service and it comes back after 300 miles (it only resets to 300miles) Oil was serviced on purchase not 2000 miles ago. Anyone...

    Independent servicing – what’s needed?

    I really like my local garage. I neither like nor trust my local VW dealership (long story - previous car). I’ve had my T6 a year. The MOT’s due and it might as well be serviced (?). It’s on a “Q18” flexible service schedule. "Long-life" oil was used at the 27k oil change in early 2018 – but...

    Oil Extraction Pumps

    Has anyone got any recommendations for oil extraction pumps? Now, I'm a firm believer in dropping the sump plug to do an oil change but I always seem to spill at least some oil so I'm thinking of getting an extraction pump to pump most out before removing the sump plug.....and I think it would...

    Carista: Service Due Reset - Does It Affect Fixed Vs Flexible?

    Does anyone have any experience of using the Carista feature to reset the 'Service Due' indication? Does it work OK on T6? Does it affect/corrupt the Service Regime (Fixed/Flexible) your van is set to? Can you change the Service Regime using Carista? Thanks! D.

    Threading Of The Engine Oil Stopper Seat

    Hello everyone ..., my mechanic and friend owns a T5 with 5-cylinder engine. On the occasion of the first replacement of the engine oil, he found that the thread of the cap seat needed a "carry over" when the cap was reinserted onto the oil sump. This has also happened on other T5 vans that have...

    Oil Volume Min To Max On Dipstick?

    Changed my engine oil & filter and refilled with a measured 7.4 litres of oil. Checking after a long run the level is about 20% below max allowable on the dipstick. But - owner's manual doesn't say how much oil is required to fill from min to max (very, very, helpful). Anybody know? This is for...

    180 BiTdi Oil Change

    I've just ticked over 11K and I'm going to be keeping it a while and don't fancy the idea of 20k oil changes so I'm going to do incremental changes my self. I've ordered the oil & filter but I'm not sure that I like the idea of removing the oil filter and covering the engine bay with oil once...
