Engine performance will directly affect trans operation. You need to do some testing to determine if your problem is fuel or ignition related. Begin with basics such as condition of fuel filter, ignition wires, cap and rotor etc. then, using an inexpensive manual and digital volt/ohmeter, do some specific tests if you haven't already found the problem. If you have a question about anything you find, I or someone else here can help you!

Dual engine and oil lights


No way to tell what happened with the high idle if you can't make it happen on demand.
The oil and engine lights would come on if the engine died while the key was still on so that was a normal event.
You might stop somewhere and have the computer scanned for trouble codes just in case the computer recorded anything.
The difference in octane should not be a big problem if you don't switch back and forth, after about 50 miles of driving the computer will adjust for the octane of the fuel.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

Engine Revs at High RPMs and takes time to come back down


Do you have a check engine light on? If so you must get it tested for the fault code that is stored when the computer turns on this light.

My 04 dodge stratus oil light comes on when i slow down or come to a stop,but turns off as i go


Sounds like your oil level is too low.
When you slow down or stop, your oil levels out and is too low for the gauge to read.
When you speed up, your oil sloshes and splashes the sensor, thus making it appear that it is circulating properly, when it actually isn't.

Is your temperature high, too?

Warnig oil stop but oil level fine.


When you say the oil level is fine, has it dropped at all in oil level even within the fine area?

Your oil sensor may faulty, or you may have a pressure leak somewhere since you said it occurs when you slow down (let your foot off the gas which will reduce the pressure). One known issue with golfs (hope it's not with yours) is that the rear engine seal often springs a leak and ends up leaking into the flywheel and transmission assembly.
