020 Scirocco Coolant Specs – Fluid Capacities & Type

Coolant Capacities
Coolant System¬†……………….. 6.5 liters (1.7 gal)

Coolant Type
G11  РBlue
*VW Part No: ZVW 237 105
Known Good Alternate Brands:

  • Pentosin (Concentrate/need to mix) – OES Manufacturer – 1.5L Containers
  • Rowe (Concentrate/need to mix) – 1.5L & 1 Gallon Containers
  • Zerex (50/50 Premixed) – 1 Gallon Containers

Mixing Concentrates:
When mixing concentrates, make sure you use distilled water. The only time you can use tap water is if you test your water supply and make sure it’s almost 100% free from any chemicals or minerals. Well water is the worst to use as it typically always has minerals in the water. Filtering your water source will remove most of the minerals, however it will not remove all the chemicals. Most tap water sources have minute amounts of chlorine, fluoride and other anti-corrosion / scaling agents to keep steel water pipes free from “brown water” problems.

Why should I know these Specs?

Ensuring the correct Scirocco Engine Specs for torque and fluid capacities for your Mk1 and Mk2 Scirocco is crucial. This will maintain optimal performance and longevity of your Scirocco. Torque specifications dictate the amount of force needed to tighten various bolts and fasteners, helping to prevent issues such as loosening or over-tightening, which can lead to damage or failure of components. Utilizing proper torque specifications also aids in preventing leaks, ensuring a secure and reliable vehicle assembly.

Furthermore, adhering to the correct fluid capacities is essential for proper lubrication and cooling of critical engine, transmission, and braking components. Incorrect fluid levels can result in inadequate lubrication, overheating, and accelerated wear and tear on vital parts of the vehicle. By following the recommended fluid capacities, you help maintain the efficiency and lifespan of your Scirocco, minimizing the risk of costly repairs and maximizing overall driving performance and safety.

In conclusion, it is imperative to use the correct torque specifications and fluid capacities for your Mk1 and Mk2 Scirocco to guarantee optimal vehicle operation, reliability, and longevity. By paying attention to these details, you can ensure that your Scirocco continues to perform at its best for years to come.
