    6 quarts of 5w-30 synthetic vw 502. Spec oil. And make sure it is approved for vw.

    also, one quart will normally run you anywhere from 7 to 9 bucks. if you check around, you can usually find a promo to get it for around 5 to 6 bucks a quart.

    if you need to ask anymore questions regarding this, please do so, because putting the wrong oil into these engines will essentially kill them. it will read as "vw approved" on the back label, like this:

    Re: 2006 Jetta 2.5 What type of oil do i need ??

    So, it needs to be 6 quarts of 5w-40 full synthetic? but you mean that by displaying "VW" it means that is approved by the VW ??? am i correct??

    ^^ like that... VW 502.00 is what we are supposed to put in our engines. if it reads "VW 502.00, 505.00" this is ok as well...

    5w-40 is slightly heavier (higher viscosity) than 5w30...

    normally the dealers would put 5w-40, but i've switched to 0w-40 because it starts easier but i find it burns oil a bit more

    its 5w30.....5w40 is used in the diesels.


    and NEVER switch to a thinner oil (e.g. 5w30 to 0w40), it will eat the insides up because the motor is used to a heaver oil. I found out the hard way. Switched from dealership oil to 0w40 and it burns about 2-3 qts per oil change (7500-10000 miles).
