Question about 1999 Audi A6

Oil Warning light.

Hii, i have a 1998 Audi A6 Quattro.  The other day my wife was driving and she hit a pot hole.  Since then the oil warning light has been flashing on the dashboard for a few minutes then it goes away while driving, then it comes back again while driving slow.  I just had an oil change but the problem is still there.  Is it safe to drive this car or would i have to take it to the dealer.  Please advice.

I would take it to the dealer immediately. This could indicate a serious oil pump problem. It may be nothing, but if your oil pump goes out, your engine will lock up; and that means you'll, at best, be repairing major parts. At worst, you'll be buying a new car!

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

Oil level problem with 2005 Audi A6 3.0 TDI Diesel Quattro


My 2005 A4 3.0 convertible audi is not a diesel, but I had a similar experience with a low oil signal going on and after checking the oil, which was sufficient, and replacing the dipstick, the light did not come back on until a subsequent trip. The light usualIy went on when I was close to the needing an oil change. I've had the car, a used one, for about two years, and the oil light minimum signal started behaving like yours early. About a week ago the oil pressure warning light came on. I don't know if there's a relationship, but if there is be careful. Audis of our vintage have a problem with sludge build up that damages the oil pump, which is a costly item. If you drive the car with low oil pressure you may seriously/fatally damage the car. I don't know if the sludge, if that's what you have, can be cleaned out, but I'd do it if it can be. My mechanic advised me to trade the car to a dealer rather than fix it. Hope you have better luck!

You're low on oil - the Audi dipstick isn't the most accurate thing out there. Add a quart and see what happens.

ABS Warning Light


A problem in the ABS, you'll have to see a shop for that because they should have the proper scan tool to check the ABS (generic's can't cut it with the in depth modules).
