Volkswagen Golf 2003 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Golf 2003 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • VW Golf using oil

    VW engines use oil, but that's not necessarily a problem. It depends on how much it's using, and while you say it's using an excessive amount of oil, you don't say how much. I would do an actual check to determine the amount of oil it is using, which will give you a good guide as to whether it is excessive or not.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Oil for VW Golf Sport

    I would suggest a good quality synthetic or semi-synthetic 5W-30 or 10W-30.

  • Good timing

    CHANGE the belt. It should really have been changed at the earlier major service. It is being changed on the basis of time, not kilometres travelled, so do that, and do the water pump as the dealer suggests as they do leak.
