Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
Even though the engine is not cold, the blue light on the dash keeps blinking on and off. It comes on even after driving for 30 - 40 miles, so I know the engine can't be cold still.
You need to change the oil heat sensor. it's fairly simple. the sensor is located just below your air cleaner at about the 10 o'clock position. it sits right in the middle of the coolant hose so make sure that your car is not hot or warmed up. just pop the plastic clip off and take the sensor out and put the new one in. make sure that you dont leave the o-ring in there you should replace it as well. the o-ring is a factory part & costs about 10.00 and the sensor you can buy at kragen or other auto stores for about 12.00. it isn't expensive at all. I had the same problem. i changed the sensor and it stopped.
one more thing. you should get the sensor that is green. it's better than the black one that is probably in your car right now. Good luck.....
