Hi i'm new to this forum, looking for recomendations for Europe 2007 Passat 2.0 140 TDI/DSG in terms of keeping this engine out of trouble. E.g. what to check etc.

Thanks
Hasse

The 2007 should have the newer balance shaft module that uses gears instead of chains. It's much more reliable.

Check your owner's manual for service and keep up with it. The DSG uses a fluid and filter change every 40,000 miles. 505.01 engine oil is specified for your engine, slightly thicker oil like 5w-40 seems to help protect the engine better. The pumpe duse engines seem to wear their camshafts.welcometomyturbodies
