Glad to see a site that will help in self maint.! I have a 2000 VW TDI
and would love to down load a free manual or at least find a place I can get help on changing the oil and filter. This is my first deisel and it makes me nervous!!
Take a look at this website. It is a forum for TDI owners. The page I've given you is their frequently asked questions. I think you'll find a lot of your answers there. Keep in mind that these are other owners, and while there is some good information it is always wise to talk to the manufacturer about which products to use. Also check your owner's manual.
As for the manual, you probably won't be able to find it for free, and be very careful who you buy one from if you're going to download it. I would recommend going to a VW dealer and ordering one.
