Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf
If i go over 2500 rpm in ANY gear this problem will occur. this has been happening since i bought the car 2 and a half years ago plus 1 year by the previous owner. i thought about the oil pump but my local mechanic says its working fine. this happens no matter what the oil level is. i phoned volkswagen up and they have never heard of this problem! my mechanic has a computer for volkswagen but has no answer for this. he says there are 2 switches next to each other on the back of the block to the left as youre looking at the engine. this problem has got worse in the last year. my mate says when he replaced a switch it never done it as much but still done it. when you pull the spades off the switches the buzzer will still come on. please help!
Well theres two possible reason for this, 1: the engine is worn enough to let the oil blow by the main bearings causing the oil pressure to be lower then OEM spec thus activating your oil light/buzzer or 2: your using the wrong type oil, you should be using 15W40 diesel grade in all 98 and older vdubs gas or diesel engines. Alos there is one more thing you could try if you have elliminated step 1 and 2, the oil pressure sensors do wear out, replace them both (high pressure and the low pressure) there are under $15 each and easy to change. Good luck
