SOURCE: Oil Indicator light on Volkswagen Passat 1.8L Turbo

Hi. there are many issues that can cause this type of situation. the oil pressure sending unit may be malfunctioning. there could be a faulty module or the wires and connectors could also be lose or faulty as well. you could also have a clogged oil filter but, that usually isn't the main issue here. the most common problem here would be a bad oil screen in the pan or a faulty oil pump. you will find the problem in these areas above.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: 2003 VW Passat "Oil Press, Turn Off Engine" and "STOP" Light

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Exhaust pressure sensor a possibility if it has a DPF (diesel particulate filter). Has it had its fuel pump recall, the oil pressure light could be just the constant cranking and running the battery low.

I have a 2003 passat, while driving , the check oiil light came on so I stopped and checked and it was full. upon proceeding just a few miles i heard a rattling noise, I stopped an listened and it sounded...


You have a broken oil pump. The light indicates loss of oil pressure. You have plenty of oil, but no oil pressure. Continued driving will shorten the life of engine dramtically or can wreck the engine completely in a short time. You need to take it to a mechanic asap, unless you plan on tackling it yourself. in which case you should re-post for help with that, or search Google for instructions.

Sorry, and good luck.

I have 55,688 miles on my 2003 CTS. The low oil pressure/stop engin warning light comes on after I have been driving for 20 minutes or so only when car is idling at stop signs. The oil registers full and...


The oil pump could be bad, or going bad. Oil pressure is effected by wear on the crankshaft main bearings and camshaft/s bearings. If those bearings are bad, that would make it lose oil pressure, but I wouldn't think it's time for a new motor at that mileage!!! I would find out what the actual oil pressure is, using a "wet gauge" or oil pressure gauge. The oil pressure sending could also be bad, giving false readings.

I have a message saying STOP engine, oil pressure service manual


This light is an indicator that you have oil sludge in your engine and you should stop driving your vehicle and get it checked out right away. By continuing to drive the vehicle can cause further damage to your vehicle.

The Warning Light Comes on "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" what does this mean


car needs oil pressure or bearings will wear out in short time. Do not drive or start engine with this light on. Might only be pressure sending unit. Can replace sending unit and start briefly to see if problem resolves. If light still stays on, shut off engine and have oil pump replaced.

Oil pressure stop motor


My 2003 1.8L Passat at 62K indicated Oil Pressure, Stop Engine. I had been low on oil for longer than I realized, though the car didn't indicate to me anything. I added a quart 5-40 synthetic as usual, and about 300 miles mid way on a road trip is when the warning lit up!
I had been to the dealer last year and there was a mention of sludge developing in these cars. They suggested I bring it in to remove sludge but life got busy, and it never happened. Evidently this model Passat is notorious for this oil sludge problem.
My Passat needed a new oil pump $800 later half way between destination and home. Luckily I was in a town with a 30 VW mechanic who was very good. The sludge (carbon deposits) had blocked pump pickup. Oil level was good. The computer didn't show anything, but the oil pressure test discovered PSI went down when RPM's went up. Not good.
This problem is very serious as it has ruined engines. I guess I was lucky in the fact that nothing else was damaged. So you may look into this build up. It sounds terribly familiar.
