Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
My engine was running like a dream when suddenly there was an ugly knock, sounds like a diesel engine, but prior to that my oil light and buzzer went of so I filled up the oil and took it for a test drive, but the light and buzzer going of again I checked the oil level and it was over full so i drained the oil until the level were right, when I started my car the engine had this knock in it.
DO NOT DRIVE or run this car until you resolve this. Irreperable damage may already have been one, but if not, don't press your luck.
Sounds like you don't have any oil pressure, could be
oil pump bad (pretty rare unless you have 300K miles or more no regular oil changes) or
oil pickup screen plugged up, If you or someone didn't change the oil regularly this is likely
obstruction in oil line (very unlikely)
defective oil filter or pressure relief valve (pretty unlikely)
pleas rate all soutions
