    Yes you may. I reckon most on the forum know who my dad is.

    I hope he's proud. He built the foundation.

    Pity we see each other so seldom these days.

    I am sure he's very proud and the foundation was laid solidly.
    Fortunately he also drives a Touareg and a V10 at that!!!!
    Yes time seems so sparse nowadays.

    330'000 diens sal in volgende week of twee aanbreek.

    Selfs met n engine vervanging is die onderhoud omtrent net oor die R10k/jaar vandat ek hom het.

    Kan rerig nie daaroor klaar nie.

    Baie goedkoper as om nuut te koop. Hy het my nog nooit laat staan nie. Ek het hom nog elke keer self gestop waar ek hom wou stop.

    330'000km service done and dusted and I noticed some oil on the sump plug before the service.

    Assumed the sump plug was leaking so I got a new one from VW.

    Did the service and a day later the oil was on the sump plug again. As this is not a land rover, I couldn't leave it at that.

    Turbo side of engine where I did the manifold and turbo gasket recently was bone dry so I checked the other side and it looked proper wet at the oil pressure switch.

    VW wants R345. So I thought I will take mine off and go to Goldwagen and Bosch to marry up a sensor.

    Lo and behold. The sensor was only finger tight

    I take it off, apply 6 bar air pressure and dunk it in water to check it's not the plastic separating from the housing (it happened to my pajero once).

    Nope, sensor is still in good condition. Clean it and dry it. A squirt of q20. Wipe the threads clean and a dab of loctite this time.

    Reinstalled the sensor and I will monitor the oil leak but I'm confident it was that.

    Amazing how my oil stays clean.

    This is 3000km after the last oil change.

    I wonder if I can safely stretch the oil change intervals to 15'000km

    I usually do 10'000km

    Cannot believe how clean your oil is from a diesel, do you fill up at the same filling station ? What brand diesel ?

    I think you can safely do 15,000km. As I read your posts, you do mostly long distances.
    I do 15,000km and I have never had any issues. I also do a lot of long distances.

    I have done 15k oil changes in everything I have owned. Including diesels. When you use good synthetic oils and they are that clean you are wasting money changing them at 10k.
    And I have never had any kind of failure that was oil related ever.
