2003 Volkswagen Passat Q&A

2003 Volkswagen Passat Question: need an oil pan gasket?

Does my 2.8l V 6 need an oil pan gasket? -
Answer 1
Your 2.8 uses a silicone gasket, so there is no pan gasket per se. I like to use the Victor Reinz OEM silicone gasket kit which is basically a high grade tube of silicone. -

That's what I thought. I just ordered a new pan and a tube of Reinz, so I should be in good shape. Thanks much! -

100K Had an engine light and the oil looked bad. The oil pan was dropped and cleaned. Mechanic said it did not look that bad. If it runs good and oil looks good in 5k we'll do timing belt and water...
