ENGINE OIL: Approx qty! Use petroleum or synthetic(synthetic specifically for new Jetta)oils meeting VW oil quality standard: VW502 00(a must for 1.8T),
or VW500 00 or VW 501 01, ACEA A2 or A3(A3 for 1.8T), (TDI–PD) Use ONLY VW 505 01, ACEA B3/B4. Use viscosity 5W40 or if not avail 5W30.Don’t overfill!
Overfilling can cause misfire DTC’s to be stored in Engine Control Module (ECM) -J220-. To prevent overfil, add approx.0.5L less than cap, start engine,run til
eng op temperature is approx. 60_C (140_F), turn OFF ignition, wait approx. 3 minutes, check dipstick, then fill to MAX. See RM for details. Turbo engines only:
After changing oil and filter, start and run engine at idle til oil pressure light goes out. DON’T rev eng, this could cause damage/ failure of turbocharger.
MANUAL TRANS: 02J:Use mineral oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 726 A2, 02M: Use synthetic oil SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 171 A2.
AUTOMATIC TRANS: Use VW ATF, Part No. G 052 162 A2(1 liter container) for 01M trans, G 052 990 A2(1 liter container) for 09A trans, G 055 025 A2 for
09G. Life-time filling, new fill quantity is for reference only. Only replace after repair (i.e. when removing oil pan). See Repair Manual (VESIS) for details.
DIFFERENTIAL AUTOMATIC TRANS: Use synthetic gear oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 145 S2(1 liter container) . Life-time filling, new fill quantity is for
reference only. Only replace after repair. See Repair Manual (VESIS) for details.
COOLING SYSTEM: Use only phosphate-free coolant G 012 A8F A4, PURPLE COLORED. DO NOT INTERCHANGE OR MIX older G11(ZVW 237 105),GREEN
COLORED.This can result in serious damage to the engine. However, it may be mixed with ZVW 237 G12, PINK COLORED. Frost protection is required down
to approximately -25_C (-13_F). In countries with arctic climates, frost protection is required down to approximately –35_C (–31_F). The anti-freeze ratio must
be a minimum of 40%, as otherwise frost protection is reduced. The recommended mixture ratio is 50:50. If greater frost protection is required (very cold climates),
the amount of G 012 A8F A4 can be increased, but only up to 60%. This provides frost protection to approx. -40_C (–40_F). Do not reduce the coolant concentration
by adding water, even in warmer seasons and in warmer countries, as cooling effectiveness will be reduced.
NOTE: Part numbers are for reference only. Always check with your Parts Dept. for the latest parts information.

ENGINE OIL: Approx.quantities! Use petroleum or synthetic based oils meeting VW oil quality standard : VW502 00(a must for 1.8T) or VW 500 00 or VW501
01, ACEA A2 or A3, A3(A3 for 1.8T). TDI–PD Only use VW 505 01, ACEA B3/B4.Use viscosity 5W40 if available, 5W30 if not available. Do not overfill! Overfilling
engine oil can cause misfire DTC’s to be stored in ECM (J220). To prevent overfilling, add approx. 0.5L less than capacity, start engine and let run until engine
operating temp is approx. 60_C (140_F), turn OFF ignition, wait approx. 3 minutes, check dipstick, then fill to MAX. See Repair Manual for details. Turbo engines
only: After changing oil & filter, start & run engine at idle till oil pressure light goes out. DON’T rev engine, this could cause damage/ failure of turbocharger.
MANUAL TRANS: 02J:Use mineral oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 726 A2, 02M: Use synthetic oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 171 A2.
AUTO.TRANS: Use VW ATF, Part No. G 052 162 A2(1L)for 01M. Life-time filling, new fill quantity is for reference only. Only replace after repair (i.e. when
removing oil pan). See VESIS for details. Use G 055 025 A2 for 09G. Use G 052 182 A2 for 02E Trans.
DIFFERENTIAL AUTO.TRANS: Use synthetic gear oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 145 A2(1L). Life-time fill, new fill qty is for ref. only. Only repl. after repair.
COOLING SYSTEM: Use phosphate-free coolant G 012 A8F A4, PURPLE COLOR. DO NOT INTERCHANGE OR MIX G11(ZVW237 105),GREEN COLOR. This
can result in serious damage to engine. However, it may be mixed with ZVW 237 G12, PINK COLOR. Frost protection is req. down to approx. -25_C (-13_F).
In areas with arctic climates, frost protection is req. down to approx. –35_C (–31_F). The coolant ratio must be a min. of 40%, as frost protection is reduced. The
recommended mixture ratio is 50:50. If greater frost protection req. (very cold climates), the amount of G 012 A8F A4 can be increased, but only up to 60%. This
provides frost protection to approx.-40_C(–40_F).Don’t reduce concentration by adding water, inwarmer seasons/countries,cooling effectiveness will be reduced.
A/C REFRIGERANT OIL: Use PAG oil, Part No. G 052 154 A2 w/Sandon compressor.

ENGINE OIL: Approx.quantities! Use synthetic based oil meeting VW oil quality standard: VW502 00 or VW500 00 or VW505 01 ACEA A2 or A3, API Sevice
SJ for all engines. Use oil viscosity 5W40 if avail, or 5W30 if not available. Do not overfill! Overfilling engine oil can cause misfire DTC’s to be stored in Engine Control
Module (ECM) -J220-. To prevent overfilling, add approx. 0.5L less than capacity, start engine and let run until engine operating temperature is approx. 60_C
(140_F), turn OFF ignition, wait approx. 3 minutes, check dipstick, then fill to MAX.
AUTOMATIC TRANS: Use VW ATF, Part No. G 052 162 A2 (1 liter container). Life-time filling, new fill quantity is for reference only. Only replace after repair
(i.e. when removing oil pan). Use G 055005A for 09L trans. See Repair Manual VESIS for details.
DIFFERENTIAL AUTOMATIC TRANS: Use synthetic gear oil, SAE 75W90, Part No. G 052 145 A2 (1 liter container). Life-time filling, new fill quantity is for
reference only. Only replace after repair. See Repair Manual VESIS for details.
COOLING SYSTEM: Use only phosphate-free coolant G 012 A8F A4, PURPLE COLORED. DO NOT INTERCHANGE OR MIX older G11(ZVW237 105),GREEN
COLORED. This can result in serious damage to the engine. However, it may be mixed with ZVW 237 G12, PINK COLORED. Frost protection is required down
to approximately -25_C (-13_F). In countries with arctic climates, frost protection is required down to approximately –35_C (–31_F). The anti-freeze ratio must
be a minimum of 40%, as otherwise frost protection is reduced. The recommended mixture ratio is 50:50. If greater frost protection is required (very cold climates),
the amount of G 012 A8F A4 can be increased, but only up to 60%. This provides frost protection to approx. -40_C (–40_F). Do not reduce the coolant concentration
by adding water, even in warmer seasons and in warmer countries, as cooling effectiveness will be reduced.
POWER STEERING: Hydraulic oil G002 000. Do not use ATF.
A/C REFRIGERANT OIL: Use PAG oil, Part No. G 052 300 A2 with R-134a.
