really? where did you put the extractor tube into? oil dipstick tube?new serp belt and serp belt tensioner, and 90K oil change.
Did confirm the '15 are fluid extractor friendly for draining all but 5 drops from the oil pan. So no more minor weeps from the drain plug here on out. I still gotta change out the oil filter but that oil drain plug is very tight to get a nice seal even with a copper crush washer. I'll be sucking oil out from here on out.
awesome! thank you so much. I ended up nearly overfilled my 7 qt oil tray from the engine... literally 6.5L-ish estimate. it was scary. I jacked her up to level in order for the DSG service and oil change at same time hence 6.5L-ish coming out.yeah extractor tube in the dip sick rooted around and was able to get the sucker stick all the way down so it was just showing at the top of the dipstick tube, i was able to get about ~5.5L out into the extractor (i didn't add any oil over 10K since march), and then about 10 slow drops out of the drain bolt to verify. I did have the waterfall of the oil filter but it was reassuring knowing the extractor sucks it dry.
I concur, I always had an colorful language every single time I do the oil change on the 2015, with my 2014 JSW and her daughter's 13 Jetta Sedan, I sing happily lol if I knew this way back then, I wouldn't have gotten the NMS Passat in the first place and go with another JSW.When I had my ALH I used an oil extractor and it was awesome to not have to get under the car to do an oil change. On my Passat I stopped using the oil extractor and put on a Fumoto oil drain valve to make oil changes easier. If I have to get under the car to change the filter I might as well drain it that way. It's ok but I still wish they had left the oil filter as a top change deal, that was an easy oil change.
30mpg of regular is about the same cost per mile as 42 mpg of diesel over here too, crazy. Some stations have just started coming under $4/gal, some still hovering around mid $5s.My Passat has been 27 days at the dealership now. It was supposed to be done last Friday, but the mechanic hurt his back.
Sad thing is that I am spending the same amount on fuel with the loaner Atlas V6 as I was with the Passat.
And the turbo is bad. But hey, it's under warranty.31 days now. They said they are shooting for having it done today. When I asked, they had not even started taking it apart at 4:30pm yesterday. So my guess is it won't be ready.
I am getting about 23-25mpg in the Atlas, and usually got 38-39 in the Passat. Regular is $2.50 here, Diesel is still $4.00.
Update: Of course they didn't get it finished before the holiday. The tech had issues removing the jigsaw puzzle and was unable to even get it apart yesterday.
