Been my daily since 2004. My worst failure was the heater core, by far the most difficult repair I've done on the car. Plenty of minor repairs over the years due to maintenance. Solid clutch, I'm still riding on the original.
Apparently it's only sold at Advance Auto Parts.
API: CK-4, CJ-4, CI-4 Plus, CI-4, CH-4 SN, SM, SL, SJ
Has the same api rating as the Rotella T6 anyway, but not finding any other documentation.
So oil change time is coming up. I've been trying to find Rotella 5w40 that I've always used and it's been out of stock for a month. I've been regularly checking quite a few stores - wal-mart, tractor supply, and auto parts stores. The guy at Advance auto showed me some Fram 5w40 diesel oil...
Understandable. Hopefully it goes to someone that will fix it rather than scrap. Must be a lot of VW people in Pensacola. Usually when I browse the classifieds I see a lot of heavily modified stuff for sale there.
A little off topic, but OP is not the only one to make this mistake.
My mother overfilled her engine with oil a couple years ago. It died on her and she towed it home. I came over and drained it to the correct level and started it up. It was making a loud knocking noise and before I could...
Right on time, I just noticed all the missing plugs last time I was underneath. We've got a good selection of knock out plugs for electrical panels at work. I'm planning to see if any of those match up.
I envy you guys with the cheap bills.
I've got a 3600 sq ft house with a 1000 sq ft MIL suite and a pool, all electric 5 occupants. In the summer my bill is around $460. Fall, winter, spring I'm around $260
I'm going to look into solar, then maybe selling.... this and the property taxes...
Sounds like a clearance problem of some kind. Once assembled and tightened it binds. Do the pumps sit flush before tightening?
Could the IMS bearings possibly be worn enough to cause it?
I've no experience here, just throwing out what I'd look at.
One other thing I did is I vented the CCV to atmosphere. I have a ton of pressure, blowby? coming off the valve cover. Thinking this may be a contributing factor to the issue.
Still looking into this, but it has me concerned that I'm due for an engine rebuild or swap. I'm only in the 480k...
