It's a 1.8 GL, i need to know what oil and the capacity.

Also want to check the Champion plug type (My local factors is crap and always gives you the wrong one!) and the gap.

Re: VW Golf MK III - HELP!!!

Dont like to give out innacurate info which is why I need as much detail as possible......

however NGK BKUR6ET10 plugs(1mm gap),4.5litres of oil(inc filter) & 5w/30 or 20w/50 dependent on climate/usage,this applies to plugs aswell.

Re: VW Golf MK III - HELP!!!

cant believe there's comments about the reliability problems of a golf, there has never been a fiat, or any italian car, that is half as reliable or well built as the mk3 golf. if they ever manage to do it i'll be impressed.

Re: VW Golf MK III - HELP!!!

My Seat had VW lump in it- it was nothing but trouble, seen loads of passats dropping their vital fluids on the hard shoulder, and my mate had a mk3 golf that wouldnt idle properly and had flats spots and power loss all over the place- and no matter how much money your threw at it it woudlnt work.

I just dont like it when everyone says somethings great and they actually make it out to be greater than it is. At least with a fiat you expect it to break.
