Changed oil and oil filter at the dealer and when on the way back got the oil lamp display on and off while driving. Stopped the car to check the oil level on the dip stick and it showed correct level. Started the engine and drove a couple of miles and then the oil lamp came back and then disappeared. Any suggestions or advise.
I have the same problem. Its my understanding that the code must be cleared with a scanner after an oil change. That should have been done at the dealer I'd call them and ask, Hope this was helpful good luck.

Take it back to the Dealer........Their Problem not yours. It is possible that a plug was removed during the service and at some stage the ignition was switched on before the plug was reconnected , this would cause a check light and the computer would store this until the light was reset. Hope this helps.
The insert or cartridge filters are easy to change..You must jack up the front of the car, remove the engine belly pan. in the front of the motor there is a black cylindrical housing for the oil filter cartridge..On the bottom is a cap that just screws off..Unscrew the cap, take it off, slide the old insert off, then slide the new one on..Screw the cap back on and voila! you are finished..If the insert came with a new rubber o-ring, make sure to replace the old one on the cap.
I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!
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!
oil type is either 5W-30W or 10W-30W depending how cold your climate is, as far as having the car properly taken care of, the Audi dealer is the best option, they have all the proper tools and service info needed to keep the car in top running condition.
