    It will be fine, the 507.00 is the "cover all" spec from VW.

    My 03 1.9 has always been on long life service oil. Now at 174K I was thinking about changing the oil at least every 10k.

    Any issues of switching from 506 to 505, or it perhaps worth just going for 507?

    There is no problem switching from one to the other, just drain and replace.

    Cheers

    hi. sory oilman but i can't find my car using the link you posted above... maybe i'm going blind :P
    the closest i can get is 1.8T 2001 and above.
    thanx alot for the detailed oil info you provided. btw is it true that it's not very good to put a fully syntethic oil in an old engine?

    oh and could you tell us please the correct procedure for changing the oil + filter. thanx
    '98 A4 1.8SE 235k miles..... and going
    '97 A4 1.8T 148k miles...... gone

    Oilman: I appreciate the information you've posted and I'm sure it tells me all I need to know in practice. I'm just curious about one thing: I don't think you've mentioned the magic word "synthetic" anywhere. Are all recommended oils for modern engines synthetic, or am I missing something?

    How do you mean? There are so many factors they decide what kind of oil you go for... Synthetic or mineral.

    Lets take a VW1.8t petrol engine, it can run on mineral oil and if that is all you can get then thats whats recomended, synthetic is better and is the norm, if your going onto longlife service then you need to goto a longlife sythetic (different yet again from a normal service synthetic), you have no choice as mineral oils wont go the distance. So thats three different types of oil that can be used in just one engine and all used for different reasons.

    Cheers
