VW Passat 2002 oil light staying even after topping up

Hi There,

My oil light came on yesterday. when i checked the oil it was low so i topped it up. The issue i have is that it has stayed on and I am now worried that there is a blockage somewhere or the pressure is too low. The 2002 VW does not have a oil pressure gauge on it. Should I bring to a garage to get it looked at.

Thanks

Sean

Is the motor knocking? Does the light go out when some RPM's are added? If the motor is knocking, you have a big problem with the motor. If not, you may just have a bad oil sending unit/wiring.

2002 VW Passat GLX. Burnt oil smell from engine when I hit a bump


I had this problem with my passat... the valve cover gasket is slightly leaking. If you take the big plastic piece off the top of the motor (4 plastic fake screws you just have to twist) you can see along the edge of the valve cover if there is oil or not. Mine wasn't bad, but was doing the same thing you describe. Here is a write up on how to do it... really easy (http://www.taligentx.com/passat/maintenance/valvecovergasket/) or you can get a Chilton manual which will show you how to do lots of things yourself, usually $30-$40 for the book.

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.
