The lifeline of your engine is oil. Oil circulates through passages in your engine and lubricates moving parts, cutting down on friction. In order to keep this oil clean, it passes through a filter which removes harmful contaminants. Often times it can be difficult to determine the proper engine oil and filter for your Volkswagen and Audi. This is why the experts at USP have done the home work for you. USP carefully created this oil service kit which includes everything needed to perform an oil change.
If you have looked under the hood of your car you may have noticed that your 1.8T and 2.0T generation 3 TSI turbo engine is equipped with an oil filter inside a fragile plastic housing. Each time you perform an oil change this housing needs to be removed. Unfortunately the plastic filter housing becomes brittle over time and often cracks during oil changes which are performed regularly. Constructed of billet aluminum, the USP Cool Flow housing is far stronger than the factory plastic housing. Not only is the Cool Flow housing stronger, but it also incorporates cooling fins to help cool engine oil as it passes through the filter and housing. For this reason the experts at USP have assembled this kit which includes engine oil, replacement oil filter, oil filter o-ring, and the USP Cool Flow Oil Filter Housing.
This oil service kit includes Liqui Moly Leichtlauf engine oil. Leichtlauf is a modern top class low-friction engine oil for all-season use in petrol and diesel engines without diesel particulate filters (DPF). The combination of innovative base oils – based on synthesis technology and the latest additive technology – guarantees an engine oil that reduces oil and fuel consumption and that ensures fast lubrication of the engine.
Knowing how much oil is in your engine is also vital. Oil levels should be checked monthly on standard vehicles and weekly on modified vehicles. By checking your oil level you can insure your engine will last and operate properly. Unfortunately the factory oil dip stick on your Volkswagen or Audi is constructed of plastic. Since the dip stick is exposed to extreme temperatures in the engine bay, they deteriorate over time and crack. This leaves you unable to check your oil level and pieces of the factory oil dipstick can also fall into the engine oil. Well worry no more. This kit includes the USP Billet Aluminum Oil Dipstick.
Constructed of billet aluminum and a steel cable, the USP Dip Stick allows you to accurately check your engine oil levels without worrying about your dip stick crumbling like the factory dip stick. Purchase this kit and save 10% over purchasing the Oil Filter Housing Dip Stick separately.
USP recommends performing an oil change every 6 months or 5,000 miles on standard vehicles and every 3 months or 3,000 miles on modified vehicles.
