Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault codes stored in the computer. Most parts stores will perform the scan at no charge. This will help identify any problem/potential problems that the computer has identified in the car's systems. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Low oil pressure

Kenny, The Volkswagen 1.8 seem to be prone to oil sludge in these years according to the forums on line. So if sludge is a problem, it could be partial plugged oil pump pickup causing light to flicker, and also may have cause piston rings to wear premature allowing excess oil to pass and show smoke from exhaust. Have engine checked, diagnosed and estimate for repair by a good Tech. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to unlock a seized engine on a 2003 volkswagen passat

That sort of depends on how bad it is. You can pull the plugs and put oil in the cylinders and wait a few days, then see if you can get it to turn over. Other than this, pulling the engine out and taking it apart is the only sure way. You will likely end up doing a LOT of work to repair it. Bearings, rings, pistons, etc.
