Question about Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Car requesting oil even after being filled up.

I've got a Polo estate (not a golf but had to pick one and Polo not listed), with no handbook! Today a message flashing "service oil" appeared below the mileage. I bought a litre or two of oil and put it in but the message is still there. Any ideas? Thanks, Sally

This message does not mean the engine is low on oil, it means the oil change is due. if you have added oil, it may mean it is now overfilled. This could cause as much damage as low oil, VW have a system on the vehicle that tells you when the vehicle requires servicing, the next message should be inspection 1. these are the VW service schedules. They are worked out on mileage and the way the vehicle is driven. Take the vehicle to your local decent repair shop and get the oil and filter replaced, and remind them to reset the service indicator. After this all will be well.

There is a ticking noise from standard vw golf engine,


It would not hurt to check it but the loss of oil and the loss of coolant are worrying. I would have a compression test done to check the head gasket and head. The tick may be compression gas escaping at the gasket. That would also account for coolant loss. Have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks. Towing a trailer ( I guess that it had a bit in it) over a long distance at speed ( probably 60 mph or better) places strain on a good engine but if the engine is on par or below then faults appear

Hi, I have a 2000 2L Golf and had full service (cam belt, water pump etc) completed 23/03/09...Oil Presure light came on today and found dip stick is dry???...Some evidence of water in oil under cap but...


Water under oil cap is normal when the engine doesn't get hot enough to evaporate the moisture from the inside of the engine.
Fill oil to the full mark on the dipstick and keep an eye on it , Part of me is wondering if the Tech filled it to the correct level after he serviced it.
If it isn't smoking and not leaving oil on your drive then it should be O.K.
I hope this helps
