I think it's more due to the unrealistic service intervals set by VW.

What would cause a 1.8T to sludge up more than a VW 16V or ABA motor? They never had problems. Of course the recommended oil change interval wasn't 10k miles either.

No, but my 'Pal' at German Auto Salvage says that motor is one of his most plentiful blown up motors and he thinks it sucks. FW that Is Worth. Don Hanson On Mon, Oct 12, 2009 at 12:01 PM, Mark Dearing <> wrote:
