An oil cooler extends the life of an engine by specifically keeping the oil 'cooler' that what the regular cooling system can do (which is designed to cool the entire engine). If your car has some SEEPAGE around the cooler and/or lines that is not the end of the world; but if it LEAKS repair it. Since it is external to the engine I would not expect it to be a major repair.

There is no repairing it - you just replace it.

As far as I can see, because I crawled into the trunk to open the trunk so I could repair the mechanism that opens the trunk. No!

You would need to take off the door panel in order to remove it. I've included an auto repair video in "related links" down below that will show you exactly what needs to be done to replace it on your 2000 Volkswagen Passat. Hope this helps you out.

If one has a Volkswagen in need of repair, they should take it a repair shop that specializes in Volkswagen repair. Many regular repair shops do not have the knowledge and expertise to work on these cars. A Volkswagen dealership is also a good place to take it for repairs, but they usually charge higher prices.

Sounds like a Passat 1.8. If the light is coming on, welcome to the world of 1.8l sludge. One solution= Engine flush at dealer and only use synthetic from then on. VW knows about this problem and the dealers have the repair instructions. This answer comes from experience.
