  1. General Maintenance & Repair
    I changed the oil on my 2012 TDI just yesterday and discovered that there is what appeared to be a small oil leak from the oil pan gasket, no big deal but I wish the dealer had told me about it 6 months ago when they changed the oil. Anyway, I saw this and proceeded to change the oil, looked...

    2016 TDI North American - stock setup. Tow about 2/3 of the interval and will be storing the vehicle for several months. Oil change coming due. Should I change before putting into storage, or right away when I'm ready to take it out of storage. Only 30k miles on the engine, so it's still...
