So I work at O'Reilly Auto and it seems as though Castrol has discontinued the oil that I used for my last oil change (Part Number in O'Reilly system EDGE5-30EURO) and we are unable to get it. I have been looking around and someone recommended 0w-40 in the Castroil brand ( Part Number in O'Reilly system EDGE0W-40) I was wondering if anyone has some advice or a recommendation for a course of action.

You need a VW approved 507 spec oil. This is an old list and new ones have been added since then but you should be able to find something. If nothing else you can get the Castrol Edge from the dealer. I would stick with the viscosity stated in your owners manual. My personal preference is the Liqui Moly Top Tec 4200 in 5W-30 but use what you like as long as it meets the spec and don't overfill if you still have your factory emissions in place.

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company 6 months ago that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

I haven't been able to verify if the VW dealerships still have access to the Castrol Edge Professional LL03 Oil but you can get Castrol Edge LL on Amazon (and other places) which meets the 507.00 spec you need for your common rail TDI.

The part number is 03669 for a 5 quart jug.
