    Did you lose oil pressure and the engine stopped? Did the oil pressure idiot light come on and then your engine stopped? If the answer to EITHER ONE of these questions is "yes", you are screwed because your engine seized due to no oil...

Change the oil pressure switch but what is the engine mileage,condition and servicing.Is it a siezing oil pump leading to a siezed engine.Start the car and remove the oil cap, a mist or spray of oil may come out indicating the pump is okay so to speak and on steady idle may blow more out.If thats the case then it may be the switch only but given the age and possibly a high miler it may be the oil pump and bearing in mind these cars had oil trouble from new because of wrong oil grade being used in the factory and the specification being changed from standard oil to part or fully synthetic to prevent standard oil turning too a greasy paste like substance that led to siezed new engines after a year or 2.

My Volks wagen Golf told me abou oil press, What does it mean


it means that the oil pressure is too low for safe operation. stop and check oil level. If the level is right get it to a dealer service centre to have the pressure checked on a mechanical gauge as it may be just the sender unit. no oil pressure is very unforgiving in an engine and very costly.

How to turn change oil light


iI you mean 'how to turn change oil light off" go to fuse panel. Open drivers door there is a panel cover on the side of dash board, remove cover there is a red RESET button that resets oil pressure and tire pressure. Turn the ignition key to the on position but don't start the car. Now press and release the reset button the change oil light should start to flash, now press and hold the reset button until you hear chimming hold until chimming stops then release, the change oil light should go off. If you need to reset tire pressure press reset button twice, the first push will make the change oil light flash the second press will make the tire pressure light flash then hold untill chimming stops, light should go out . Hope this helps.

The golf 4 shows an error "fuel press. stop motor"


i believe it means you aren't getting enough fuel.
i'm not sure though, but i know it says Oil press. Stop motor, when the oil pressure stays too low for a period of time.
