SOURCE: Oil light flashing & beeping

This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps, Mark.

SOURCE: oil light comes on and beeps

Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.

SOURCE: Oil Light comes on VW passat

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Lost acceleration, steering and engine cut off. Oil light came on. What could be wrong?


Oil light came on? Yikes! That's about the worst thing that can happen to the engine. Don't try to run the engine or you will completely ruin it. Can you check the oil level or have someone else check it? Did something happen that would have caused the oil to leak out of the engine (like going over a curb and bottoming out)? Did you have someone or a shop change the oil? Maybe the oil drain plug wasn't properly replaced.
Get the proper type and quantity of oil into the engine before you try anything else. Good luck and I hope it's not too late.

What makes the car start and run but gauges go off and key light comes on


The first part is magic, (EFI system and good engine)
but?????
gauges go off can be a bad fuse or loose fuse to cluster.
when any Gas engine stalls. the RPM drops to 0
the EFI sees that and goes to key on, not started self test.
this is covered in the operator guide.
key light comes on KEY LIGHT, HUMMMMMMM
Let me look at the waring lamps, there are many.
one light is engine overheat that is logo of a thermometer but looks
just like a key.
http://dashboardsymbols.com/the-symbols/
is this a engine stall post
or engine runs perfect all the time , but only my dash acts funny
you didnt say?

key lamp?
immoblilzer (big trouble there)

a stall is anytime engine RPM drops to zero. called a STALL.
if your cars engine stalls, post that way, the lamps are all normal
on at any stall, on any car.
at a stall , rpm goes to zero and MPH drops to zero as you coast to a stop , stalled. that is all normal for any stall.

if engine stalls.
that is complex.
here is list.
  1. lost 12vdc power to EFI system. (battery died, fuse blown)
  2. never gave your car the 60,000 mile tune up, see opr, guide.
  3. bad fuel.
  4. overheated the engine.
  5. engine oil gone, never ever checked at each fill up.
  6. other more complex EFI system parts failures, ASK.

My oilcan light and beeping alarm intermittently come on at various speeds. I have checked the oil levels & they are good. the car runs well and does not use excessive oil. However the beeping is very...


hi.
there are a few likely reasons for this warning.
1. faulty oil pressure switch.

2. blocked oil channels in the engine.

3. oil too thin, resulting in low oil pressure. especially if not changed recently.

4. blocked oil filter. especially if the ol has not been changed recently.

the warning is there for a reason. the reason for it should be found and remedied or you risk major engine damage.
number 4 and number 1 are the most likely, but if you change the oil, flushing the engine with a proprietery engine oil flushing additive, and change the filter and switch at the same time, you can rule out all of the main causes at the same time. the switch and filter are cheap parts normally costing a few dollars each.

the VW engines are fantastic engines and will pretty much last forever if looked after.
it is worth spending the extra few dollars to do all the work at once and you know it has all been done and will last for a good number of years.

any good mechanic can do this work. or you could do it yourself with an owners workshop manual, readily available from somewhere like ebay for under $10.

if you would like more advice please feel free to ask.

My oil light is on and beeping like crazy on my 1997 volkswagon jetta and something in the motor keeps clicking on top of that i would like to know why?


Usually when the oil light comes on, its too late to save the engine if the sensor is working properly.

Check the oil in your engine under the hood. If it has the correct amount of oil, check the wire going to the oil pressure sensor located on the side of the engine. It may be loose or the sensor may have failed sending a false reading.

If you do not have oil in the engine " no oil pressure" you may have badly hurt the engine, and the noise you are hearing is the rocker arms begging for mercy.

Good luck! write back

2004 Doge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi 190K mile had oil pressure gauge drop to ZERO and check gauges light come on and engine shut down.. Check oil 1 guart low, add oil. let cool. crank up, good gauges drove home 45...


If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

My vw touran loses power for short periods


Runs good most of the time? Doesit matter how full the gas tank is? If the power is low how long doesit stay low? a second or two. or even less? when the power comes back on is it as good as ever? Are you talking about driving power or electrical power? the electrical power is made by the altenator and the pulley has a clutch that can go bad and the charge comes and goes. a good shop can change just the clutch. A bad battery can make the altenator clutch out so it doesn't fail charging a battery that won't charge. get the battery tested. Most auto prts stores can test the battery in the car for no charge. Engine power can be check engine light related, Is the check engine light on? Exhaust pipe bent closed or stopped up? oil change up to date? The oil can break down and sludge, when it does the engine starves for oil and partly seizzes. Low oil level can do it too. VW's are bad about sludging the oil does it more if the oil is'nt changed often enough.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

Idles rough when coasting


Have you checked all the vacuum pipes around the top of the engine.?
It`s not losing oil pressure, it`s just about to stall when the oil light comes on.
Listen for a hissing noise under the hood.
Vacuum leaks can cause real problems with the inlet manifold pressures.
Good luck.
