SOURCE: gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf

There are two pressure switches. One for oil pressure and one for a dirty oil filter. Are you sure you've changed the right switch. If car drives for 30 mls it doesn't sound like you need an engine. The spluttering is likely to be completely unrelated to the oil warning I suspect.

SOURCE: vw polo 1.4 1999 oil light comes on at 3000 revs

Had exactly the same problem, completely baffled us until we discovered that the it was the oil pressure switch. We had already replaced it with a new one and then that didnt fix it so we fitted a new oil pump, but as soon as it was revved over 3000 revs the oil light came on. It turns out that there is actually a choice of 2 oil pressure switches for this car (1999 1.4 polo) one works only low pressure (black cap) and is the wrong one, the other works on a higher racio (green cap) its the high pressure one you need. If the oil light was on at tick over or below 3000 revs then its the lower oil pressure switch needed, above 3000 its the higher one. The parts people insisted there was only one, but there is definately a choice of 2 and it fixed ours instantly.
If it was an older model they actually have 2 switches on the car itself and one is a high pressure and one is a low pressure (just incase anyone needed to know)

You have two coils on this engine. Test each wire for spark with the engine running. You'll find at least one wire not sparking. replace the coil that has the wire that's not sparking.

It sounds like a fuel pump and/or fuel filter. Couple of reasons - if fuel filter is partially clogged fuel pump works twice as hard. Also this time of year with big temperature swings condensation (water) forms in fuel tank. If its a weak fuel pump, as pump gets old/tired it won't hold adequate pressure and drains back at night or shut down. Try the fuel filter first and run a good fuel cleaner through it prior to changing filter.

Oil warning light


Indication of wear within the engine. Most probably worn main bearings. First off, did you use the correct grade oil with the last oil change? If yes, get that engine out, have the crankshaft resized(entails grinding the journals to a slightly smaller diametre) and fit oversize crank bearings. While you're at it and the engine is out you may as well swop out the oil pump, saving you much time and money in the long run.

GOLF 1.9 TD 1996


Hi

The light and buzzer are indicating low oil pressure and therefor if there is enough oil in th engine then you should have the oil pressure tested because you could have, amingst other things, a worn oil pump, a clogged strainer or a sticking oil filter check valve

Maybe you could try an oil and filter change using a good quality oil filter?

Very best regards
