Was just wondering if I have to put VW coolant in or if it matters. Kind of looks like it might have Aguilar in it. Just got the car. What kind of oil does it take. I don’t have a manual.
Do you
have the same problem?

How do you drain coolant on this vehicle and bleed system? Does it have to have VW oil or can it use anything as long as it synthetic?

Hello again.

Yes, if you still have a factory warranty on your vehicle you need to use their specified products for warranty coverage. Your vehicle specifications note synthetic. I've attached a picture below again. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.
