The removed plug also stays attached to the end of the screwdriver, so no worries about it falling into the dirty oil you're collecting. It's nice that they put that green mark on the filter housing. Tired of answering the same questions time and time again? For more information, go to. States they are for single not reusable use. Want the best i can get, without breaking the bank.
And if it can't last quite that long, well, replacing the oil pan is hardly a huge deal. . So just something to be mindful of so you don't run the risk of oil going all over your motor and underbelly covers. It doesn't lie about the car it was done on. The plug is quite easy to remove, requiring just a medium flat head screwdriver and very little torque. It will give us a pretty good idea though, so ill do it anyway. Start the engine and check oil level on flat ground.
You can customize this oil change kit to fit your specific needs. It's pretty beefy and also looks high quality, with no sign of drying or losing it's shape etc. Community is all about sharing the info that's out there and our first hand experiences. Just like with castrol, just because it's castrol, doesn't mean it is always the same castrol. Approvals It goes without saying that Ravenol products meet the highest quality specifications. Its not common, but like i said not unusual. There is no best oil.
It doesn't lie about the car it was done on. I'm a huge fan of motul and use their oils in my 2 stroke scooters which is neither here nor there. First, the oil pan increases oil capacity by approximately one liter 7 Liter total. Overall this took about 1 hour and not to bad at all. But based on appearance I believe the old plug could have been reused with no problem. About 5L came out so I'm assuming consumption is about.
By the way, has anyone bothered doing an oil change at 1000 miles once the engine has been run in a bit? There is just the oil that works for your car, your engine, your environment, and your driving habits. This isn't the case with Ravenol fluids. I may follow the standard 10,000 mile interval from here on, but thought I'd do the first earlier. It's at the 7-oclock position. Now, I have no idea how reliable any of these plastic components are.
Along with the build in baffle near the oil pickup this pan will help you reduce the risk of oil starvation during track days or spirited driving. No one but yourself is liable for mishaps. They've always come back exceptional. I also threw a front mounted oil cooler while i was at it. In short an old filter isnt necesarily a bad thing, in fact in more cases than not it will be doing the job better than a new one. That being said, it's good to see you post videos as a first timer doing something.
I don't think you can realistically over tighten it -- the attempt would take so much torque it would break something, if you could even torque it that much with a common wrench. With a rubber strap wrench there was no danger of that. Not obvious, to me at least, is the exact function of the long plastic arm that runs through the middle of the filter and down into the engine, where it seats with the help of two small o-rings of it's own. Kinda pricey, but I really couldn't see why it needed to be replaced at all, especially at 5000 miles. Golf R and Scirocco posts are welcome.
I won't be changing out the clutch or anything like that on my own, but I don't need to drive to a dealership to get the oil changed, tires rotated, brake pads changed or any other light maintenance work. About half that was consumed in just the first 200 miles, so it seems to have leveled off. Ravenol is unique in that they produce their own fluids ensuring total quality control. I would rather maintain the car myself as much as I can. I did remove the plastic engine cover first. But I'm 41000 miles into my mk6.
You can save yourself some time by changing the filter while the oil is draining. Then compared to those in your pics. There's no serious possibility of it being too loose or too tight.
