I have wanted to try the GC castrol ow/30. Would anyone recommend NOT doing this on a remanned engine after 5k break in? The Honda recommendation is 5w/20 on this model (actually they now want 0w/20)

Different drivers, different responses--I'm about the complete opposite of Hokie, I lug mine most of the time. I figure, what's the point of idle if they didn't expect you to use it? No seriously, I often drive around 1,500rpm in my stickshifts,

If that cleaning process goes in through the intake manifold rather than the fuel delivery system, then that is why it cleaned the valves and your tectron maintenance hasn't. The fuel shooting into the center of the cylinder probably doesn't do much

Most of what I will say has been touched on but every manufacture uses plastic parts whether it's the cooling system or any other engine function. VW's is not alone in that and failing them for that would be like failing the auto industry as a whole.

Leave it to Toyota to put a nice sequential-capable shifter and a proper dual-gauge speedo/tach combo in a friggin' Camry...where a number of its market peers leave some of those features out.

I have been using Fumoto valves for 25+ years. The "safety" issue is a non issue. In order for the lever to be tripped by accident, it would involve so much damage to the vehicle itself that it wouldn't matter anymore. BTW - never a leak.

My Google skills must be depleting. Yxou think it would be easy to find a fluid spec sheet for this car. The Maxlife has a listing for a couple of different vw numbers. And I do believe it is a 6spd auto.
