I got the Castrol 505.01 at the dealer. Its special VW
505.01 for the 04 Pumpe Deuce motors. They sell
another Castrol diesel oil used in the 03 and earlier
TDIs (505.00 spec, I think). I hear alot of the 04s
are mistakenly getting the 505.00 oil. Change it
yourself to be sure!
The 04 PD gets its first oil change at 5000 miles, the
second at 10,000 miles and every 10,000 miles
thereafter. Like always, the filter is changed too.
BTW, its the same filter as used in the 03 and earlier
A-4 TDIs. I get the filters locally (MANN) for about
