It is important to know how much fluid to put into a cars engine. For a 1997 Jetta Vr6 needs about 5.3 quarts of engine oil.
Castrol Synthetic oil, that's the oil i use for mine.

about 20USD for the gear oil and 8USD for a pump. you'll need a 17mm Allen wrench and jackstands.
You can buy a Jetta VR6 for example on eBay or carsforsale. Or search a carshop near by you and asked for a Jetta VR6. I am sure you will find you dream car.

I don't know if the same applies to the VR6 but on the 1.8T you can find the oil filter by centering your self under the front of the car. Directly behind the radiator is the oil filter about midway up the car. Hoses can get in the way and block you from seeing it sometimes. Hope this helps. My brother has a regular 2.0 jetta, and I got a jetta VR6. The location of the oil filter is different on the VR6 here is a link to find it. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?1749962
