OIL SLUDGE PROBLEM, HOW TO REMOVE OIL PAN AND OIL PUMP

2001 Volkswagen Passat • 320,000 miles

I have changed and replaced oil with synthetic oil, changed oil filters, used a sludge remover twice and still having problems with sludge. I would like to remove oil pan and oil pump and replace them. The oil pan seems to be bolted to the motor mount and I am not sure how to remove it. Can you help me with this problem?

The subframe does not need to be removed as outlined in procedure. Remove all lower engine mount bolts and jack up the front and rear of engine. Remove the r side engine mount to block and you can slip oil pan out right side

Sorry, it is a 1.8 litre turbo engine. Do you know if there is a link for step by step instructions with pics? Thanks

I'm sorry that's the only thing I can get out of Mit1 our auto references on removing the oil pan-also it needs some special tools
