They are PDFs that you have to click on to load.

Click on the appropriate link above (for your vehicle) and then follow the instructions in GREEN below.

That's wierd...

I loaded all of the PDF's on the TDIClub server that way they would stay forever (hopefully).

Let me try signing out and clearing all my cookes because it is working for me.

That's odd.

Even after logging out and clearing all cookies and browser history, it still works for me.

You guys aren't seeing this screen after clicking on one of the links:

Perhaps I am daft... but why is there a corporate CAA membership form in my 2001 VW maintenance link?

Does TDIClub have a corporate membership.. that would be nice.

Default Thanks!!

Thanks for posting this Fixmy59bug! Super-helpful.

So - I just picked up my '13 TDI JSW in December, she's got about 6k miles so far (and I'm loving every mile!)

10k seems like a loooong time to go without an oil change by my conventional way of thinking. The local mechanic who works on my other rides drives a TDI and mentioned to me that he'd recommend changing about every 6k miles instead. He mentioned that he'd seen them "sludge up" a bit before 10k miles.

I'm wondering whether VW's long oil change intervals might be influenced a bit by trying to reduce costs for the Carefree maintenance program they offer. Any opinions on this?

Cheers!

It sounds like you should find another mechanic to be honest...

There have been literally hundreds (if not thousands) of oil change analyses on these engines.

I personally had 5 done on my 09 Jetta TDI before I traded her in.

I have never seen a problem with one of them (not related to excessive biodiesel usage) that would suggest early oil changes.

In this case, I would say to do exactly what the engineers have suggested and stick to the 10k oil change. Unless you are running 20% biodiesel or higher there should be no need for an oil change sooner.

Synthetic oil will NOT sludge in 10k miles.

As they say here, Drive more. Worry less.

Oh, and I do have all 5 of my oil analyses scanned and saved on my photobucket if you would like to check the out for yourself.

Default 10k it is!

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply. I figured I'd check with the experts here as I saw the odo click past 6k.

Believe you me, I worry little about this car - but I do plan to keep her for many years to come, so just wanting to treat her right.

Cheers!

Thank you so much for posting this. I have a 2012 Passat TDI that just turned over 10k miles this month (bought it a year ago)... my husband just last weekend picked up a used 2010 Jetta TDI. Great to have these maintenance schedules handy on the "desktop".
