Julie U.’s Volkswagen was making a ticking noise so her first thought was to take it back to the local VW dealer who told her the engine was bad due to oil sludge and quoted her an outlandish price to replace it.
Julie did her homework on Google and saw that German Car Depot had excellent reviews by many satisfied customers, so she took her car there for a second opinion.
German Car Depot‘s VW vehicle repair specialists discovered the tick was the result of low oil pressure. Once the experts at GCD desludged the engine and fixed the oil pickup tube and oil pump the ticking noise stopped.
The GCD crew was surprised the oil light and oil buzzer did not come on with all the sludge in the pick up tube found in her 1.8T engine. Richie, her service manager explained to Julie that VW / Audi autos require Oil Standard 502.00 / 505.00 / 505.01 Approved Oils.
Julie was happy she took the time to find an independent alternative to the dealer where she could not only save money but have peace of mind.
