have you replaced the oil sending unit. and check the wire to it, and also i would give the engine a oil pressure test while the sending unit is out, if you have good oil pressure then, i wouldn't worry about oil pump, i would still consider replacing the oil sending unit.

Did you resolve this?
I drive a mk3 golf GTI 8V and mine starts fine but after driving for about 3 minutes (engine warms up) it starts to misfire, the car stalls and then you can't start it again until the engine has cooled. Does this sound similar?

My mrk 4 golf gti says its over heating they is water in it there is no water in the oil no oil in the water there is heat coming out of the heaters


it sounds like your thermostat is on its way out get this checked asap. the other thing the fan may not be working correctly or sometimes they work intermitently.

I had a golf a few years back, I had the same fault but it was the radiator had blocked up although there was water in it etc it still overheated until I changed the rad.

To be sure get the thermostat checked and then have the radiator flushed through.

I want to now if its true about the problems with the 1.8 turbo GTI vw about the oil pressure


The 1.8 had some issues with buildup of oil sludge in the engine due to the amount of heat from the turbo.I would suggest that if your having oil pressure issues to have the oil pan removed and clean the sludge from the engine. Also change your engine oil to a full synthetic such as royal purple or mobil 1.A k&n oil filter works well also.

Come to stop 99 Ram oil pressure drops to 0 check gauges light.


Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.
