Mk IV Golf 2.0 - which oil?
I seem to have developed a nasty oil leak in my 2003 Golf and I'm going to have to top it up to get it home. Problem is, I can't work out what oil
I need. The book says VW 503 00, VW 500 00, VW 502 00 or VW 501 01. Alternatively it says to use oil with specification ACEA A2 or A3. Problem is I
have no idea what that equates to in laymans terms. Is it 5w-30? 10w-50? Something else? Synthetic? Semi synthetic?
Any help would be really appreciated.

is there a windscreen sticker saying when to change the oil?
and a brand name,,
otherwise it won't really matter mixing oil once.. or twice..
Castrol Magnatech is what I've used for many years in Mitsubishis and Suzuki swift and now My 68 beetle..
Its not expensive at BIG W stores... about $36.00
but You can use anything just to get the car back to get it fixed..
synthetic is too expensive to use in a leaking engine..
Of course there are many different oils You could use..
There should be many opinions on here as there are a lot of Golf owners about.
PS: I would just stay away from $17-99 oils.. lol
