Ituben the last year by 1999 1.8t Passat has had low oil pressure issues. I've had 2 turbos put in ,an oil pump, sending unit,4 engine flushes.pcv breather

Low oil pressure is often an indication that your crank shaft and/or camshaft bearings are worn out (on high mileage cars).

Have you actually measured (with an oil pressure gauge, NOT the oi pressure switch) the oil pressure to verify that you are dealing with actual low pressure, of just a faulty signal (from the oil pressure switch)?

Oil pressure light intermittent just started car in garage likely cause older car 130,000 miles

Check the oil level first. Also have some one check the pressure with a mechanical gage to be sure of the pressure and the sender unit is ok

My 2008 Chevy impala dash says low oil pressure what does that mean?

Several things: 1. Faulty oil pressure sensor (replace it (cheap)) 2.. insufficient oil (check it (cheap)) 3. blocked oil filter or oil journals (replace it and change oil) 4. oil pump failing (garage job) 5. badly worn engine bearings (garage job - usually expensive.)

Whatever it is, you should check it NOW. If you wait very long, the engine will fail.

Low oil pressure and stop engine light after changing battery and alternator hear knocking now

I see more than one issue in your story. Its possible the computer lost memory and will need to relearn. But that would not explain the knocking noise. The oil pressure warning might explain the noise if oil pressure really is low. Running without the belt for even 5 min would not cause the problems you describe.
I would focus on the low oil pressure warning and the noise first.

Low oil pressure

There is likely did some serious damage.
I visited my sister some years ago, and borrowed her Oldsmobile. I drove it 30 miles, and a rod started knocking. I barely made it home, and I had to pay 900 dollars for an engine overhaul.
4 years later she mentioned she had let the car run out of oil before my visit. Wasn't my fault after all.
I suggest you be prepared for engine failure. Here's how:
Talk to your friends and neighbors and arrange what you will do if you have car trouble.
Put an "emergency" plan into place, so you will be well prepared
for assistance.
For example, when you talk so people you trust, get their phone numbers and have them with you. You might choose to tell them why you might contact them at odd hours.
Get the phone number of a trusted towing service so you will have that for an immediate towing need. Carry that phone # with you.
I personally would not recommend you tear the engine down looking for damage, but having a honest repair garage phone number would be a good thing.

Passat 2006 2.0 tdi 140 engine won't start dash warning says either "engine fault, garage" or "low oil pressure".

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.

Put wrong oil in chrysler 300 engine light came on i change oil to the right oil light still on

you may have sludged up the oil pump and now have too little pressure, get to a garage asap and get it checked before any engine damage occurs, if the light is on then the pressure is low and you risk a blown bottom end or worse.

Oil pressure sometime goes too low causeing the oil light to come

Of course you realize that the pressure fluctuates according to your acceleration right? If it's going lower than it normally did than there can be a compression problem with the engine or possibly the oil pump is putting out a low output.

My idiot light came on in my 1994 camry showing low on oil. I put oil in because the car was low on oil and now the light stays on. I had kept the car garaged only driving it on my road weekly and now I...

Oil pressure sensors are one of the least reliable devices in our cars; to be sure you have no problem with your oil pump you should have the oil pressure checked by a shop but having replaced a half-dozen of these over the years, I'd probably just buy one and DIY.
They could cost anywhere from ~$10 to $40 US.
If you do replace it, I highly recommend using either layers of Teflon plumbing tape or a sealant when installing the new one to avoid having it drool sometime in the future.
