Which engine Oil for the B6 CDI auto 08 model?

Post by tex » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:23 pm

Hi Folks,
Help please. I've got a Passat B6 auto CDI 08 model. I've been told that 5W - 30 is the correct oil for this particular model. I have got quite a bit of 10W - 40 from a previous vehicle.....would that also be OK or should I definitely not use it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Terry.

As long as it meets VW spec 507 00 then it would be fine.
