Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 2001 VW Beetle 2.0 V Turbo (auto).
The problem never happened until today.
After an hour of driving (engine is warm), suddenly then oil light turned on/beeped.
After cooling it off (stayed out of the car for awhile), we turned it on and drove a little, after it reached 1200 rpm, the oil light beeped again, so we tried to leave it idle, and lower it below 1200 rpm, the oil light was turned off but after a minute or two, there was a consistent clicking noise that got worse/louder as if we ran out of oil or something like that (my husband thought that).
We stopped again, waited, and the same thing happened after 1200 rpm, but sometimes, the clicking noise didn't get loud (stayed the same consistency).
Then, we stopped and started again, the same thing did not happen until a few minutes later so we ended up not driving the car soon after.
The oil is NOT low at all. We just checked and added it before we went out.
What can I do to fix this? Thank you for your suggestions.
Have you done an oil change lately? If so did you doit yourself or was it done by a shop? I would check to see that the corret oil has been used fior your vehicle, I would also double check that the correct oil filter has been used. also on the open end of the oil filter that attaches to the car is a rubber " O " ring, I would remove the filter that is on there now and check to see that the O-ring from the old filter was not left behind.

I had the same problem on my girlfriends 99 Beetle. All it was was an oil pressure switch. Very cheap and easy to replace. Its located on the same block that the oil filter screws into.
