Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion
2 separate issues
The first (emissions warning check engine light) has happened on & off for years.
The second just started happening recently.
(1) I've gotten check engine errors p0441 & p1176 occasionally for awhile now. These errors appeared early on and I brought it into the dealer (several times) and they replaced damn near everything regarding emissions.
I purchased an scanner which can clear the codes for about $40 and as long as the error codes are the above I clear them and mark down when they appeared.
Does anyone have a permanent solution to this?
(2) When taking higer speed turns (like on an on ramp or off ramp) a "STOP! oil pressure wanring" appears. It disappears as soon as I pull over without me turning the car off.
Don't buy German engineering it's very complicated to fix

The oil pressure warning light is coming on because you have a low oil level. I had a car that did the same thing. When you turn sharply the oil moves to one side of the pan and no longer triggers the sensor. Check your dipstick and make sure that your oil is topped off. Continue to check this weekly to make sure you are not losing oil quickly, as this is quite bad.
As for the emissions codes, you need to find out what the descriptions for those two codes are before a solution can be offered.
