1998 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Question: type of oil and amount

Was given a vw tdi in an estate. Need to know what type oil and how much.Also what type and how much transmission fluid? Thanks -
Answer 1
I would use API-CD specification oil, 4.7 quarts with an oil filter change. Use a VW oil filter for added protection. Manual transmission calls for 2 quarts of synthetic G50 75w90 gear oil. For automatic transmissions I only have the VW part numbers. Owners handbook should have more information.
