The problem with not using the correct Volkswagen certified oil is actully not the engine but the lubrication of the camshaft that works the Injection pumps in a Pomp duece or direct injection unit injection system, not the engine bearings etc.

Your Oil is only for Diesel without Pumpe-Düse-Injection.You have to change your oil because the injection-element isn't greased enough.Here in Germany the replacement of a single injector costs ca. 500€.But you have 4 of them! In the worst case,the injector can break and damage your engine.
