I use a "C" clamp & screw it in slowly. If need be, leave cap of reservoir, and/or crack open your bleeder screw. Bleed after install.

Low oil pressure

Kenny, The Volkswagen 1.8 seem to be prone to oil sludge in these years according to the forums on line. So if sludge is a problem, it could be partial plugged oil pump pickup causing light to flicker, and also may have cause piston rings to wear premature allowing excess oil to pass and show smoke from exhaust. Have engine checked, diagnosed and estimate for repair by a good Tech. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to unlock a seized engine on a 2003 volkswagen passat

That sort of depends on how bad it is. You can pull the plugs and put oil in the cylinders and wait a few days, then see if you can get it to turn over. Other than this, pulling the engine out and taking it apart is the only sure way. You will likely end up doing a LOT of work to repair it. Bearings, rings, pistons, etc.

2001 Volkswagen passat 1.8l turbo the o ring on sensor was broke so water kept leaking out got that fixed but now the car will not keep no water in the coolant resovoir tank

Is your car overheating ? Might not be related at all. Run your Passat until it reaches operating temperature and check to see if the fans behind your radiator turn on. The temperature sensor might be bad, when you replaced the O ring, did you also replace the sensor ?

Oil in the intake manifold air hose...

This is usually an indication of "blowback" caused by worn piston rings. How many miles on the engine? There is not a cheap solution if it is blowback.
