The beep is an error message not necessarily oil. Check connections to all senders by the engine i.e. water and the 2 oils. Check coolant level as well.

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: vw polo 1.4 1999 oil light comes on at 3000 revs

Had exactly the same problem, completely baffled us until we discovered that the it was the oil pressure switch. We had already replaced it with a new one and then that didnt fix it so we fitted a new oil pump, but as soon as it was revved over 3000 revs the oil light came on. It turns out that there is actually a choice of 2 oil pressure switches for this car (1999 1.4 polo) one works only low pressure (black cap) and is the wrong one, the other works on a higher racio (green cap) its the high pressure one you need. If the oil light was on at tick over or below 3000 revs then its the lower oil pressure switch needed, above 3000 its the higher one. The parts people insisted there was only one, but there is definately a choice of 2 and it fixed ours instantly.
If it was an older model they actually have 2 switches on the car itself and one is a high pressure and one is a low pressure (just incase anyone needed to know)

Blue smoke and oil light blinking

Sounds like you have a blown head gasket. This will cause your car to loose oil. Your oil light comes on because the oil level in your engine is to low. Just pouring more oil into the engine will NOT fix the problem. The head gaskets must be replaced.

If I step on the gas hard or drive at highway speeds the oil pressure light comes on and beeps telling me oil pressure is low. When I check oil level. It is ok. Could this be an oil pump problem?

it could be
could be a leak in the pickup line to the pump
could be excessive leakage in hydraulic followers ( worn out) could be a blockage in the oil drain back to the sump leaving the oil in the rocker cover/s ( gasket not correct after a head job)

Oil light flickers and overheating

Sorry to say the oil light may be for low oil pressure, not necessarily low oil level. If the oil pressure is low, you are wearing out the bearings and engine parts at a very fast pace.

It's OK that oil light flickers or comes on while starting. It turns off when oil pressure comes up to normal. That won't happen till car is running.

Do not know what the problem is, but my check engine light is on? Recently had the oil changed and all fluids are filled up. Put in antifreeze/coolant and it was low within a week, but I found no leaking...

A loss of coolant with no apparent leak more than likely means you have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or both. Coolant entering the combustion chamber can cause a miss and that would set the Check Engine light. STOP driving this vehicle until you can find out for sure. You will destroy this engine if it has a blown head gasket and you continue to drive it. Other symptoms of a blown head gasket are white smoke from the exhaust and an overfull oil level with a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. You will also have a sweet smell at the exhaust.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Engine oil level rise from normal and oil colour change and engine doesnt start whats the remedy?

You have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket, coolant is getting into the oil. Pull the cylinder head off and have it checked for being warped and if OK replace the cylinder head gasket.

My wife said that when she got into her vehicle after work today, the oil light came on. She checked the oil and the dipstick indicated that the oil was almost "overflowing". She restarted the...

Oil level that is overfull is just as bad as oil level that is low. The crankshaft hits the oil and causes cavitation which mixes air with the oil. This will cause poor lubrication and can even cause the oil light to come on from lack of pressure. This will cause engine damage. You need to know why it is overfull. Did someone pour in too much oil or do you have a blown head gasket causing coolant to mix with the oil. Symptoms of a blown head gasket are, loss of coolant with no apparent leak, white smoke from the exhaust, oil level overfull, a foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. If you are experiencing any or all of these symptoms, STOP driving the vehicle immediately. You will destroy the engine if you continue to drive it with a blown head gasket. If you are experiencing none of these symptoms then drain enough oil out to get it down to the full mark and no more and take it to a professional for diagnosis.

Oil light

That means you're low on oil - check the level and add appropriately.
