    Best oil to use

    Have a mk4 1.6 8v and what is the best oil to use? I was told a nice thick one to take the tapping noise away, also how many letres will it take to fill up

    Use a 10/40 semi synthetic. Buy 5 litres, pour in 3.5 & check dipstick, keep checking & topping up as required. Run engine until oil light goes out, turn off & check oil again & top up as required.
