Your engine should be the 6.0, where did you drain water from? The place to drain water is the fuel pump on the rail. The only way to get the water out is to remove the allen-head screw that you will see halfway down the electric fuel-pump, on the bottom-side. Let me know if that is what you see and how it went. Also if we are are talking about the same fuel system your fuel filter kit should include two fuel cartridge filters.

When the car idles down where it almost stalls then the oil pressure does go down far enough to trigger the Light. Probably not an oil problem at all.
A bad O2 sensor may cause a bad running car. A dirty MAF sensor will cause a bad idle too. You need to get the Code off the Check Engine light

Have you read out the diagnostic trouble codes? Since the check engine light has come on, there should be one or more stored diagnostic codes. Since your 1992 is before OBD-II became the standard (in the US at least) you'll need to do either the wire/paper clip method or find someone with an OBD-I scan tool for GM products.

is your car at an idle when the a/c is engaged it takes power to run this circuit your engine will slow down. most cars have a sensor that will increase you idle when a/c is engaged. this also compensates for the added drain on the alternator

Check oil level. Make sure you're using the right weight oil. If those are good, you've either got a bad oil pressure sensor or pressure problems with the pump or worn engine bearings. Could be a sitcking pressure relief valve in the pump. But also could be a worn engine

The first thing to do is check the oil level and top it up and then check it quite often until you get the leak fixed.
To find the source of the leak, wipe the side of the engine down with a rag to clean off the excess oil. Start it and let it idle while you watch for oil to start coming out. Focus on the area where the oil stops. Occasinal reving the engine may help. I'd be looking at valve cover gaskets as the most likely cause., They are an easy back yard fix. Hope this helps.

Battery drains when car is on. Verified it is not


Sure sounds like a bad alternator to me-how did you verify the alt is okay? It should be putting out around 13.5 volts. Let engine idle-remove positive battery cable-if engine dies immediately, it IS the alternator.

If the alternator only puts out about 12/13 volts, the car's voltage consumption could be exceeding that; hence, intermittent charge/battery light.

The battery has 12.6 volts. The battery/charge light will come on if your car's voltage requirements exceed that. (Alternator pulley not spinning fast enough?) Loose alternator belt slipping could also cause this symptom.

Alternators CAN go inoperative intermittently.

Hope this helps.

2002 Jetta 1.8t cuts offs sporadically


Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Engine stalls or quits running upon excelerating


There is an idle air control valve that controls the idle rpm, which causes the nice smooth idle. When they go bad, it won't idle, jumping from hi rpms to low enough to cause the car to die. The ones that I've replaced were easy to access and replace, usually on the intake manifold area. This will also give you a check engine light. Beyond this, has the engine had a good tune up lately? To check this correctly you should check fuel pressure coming from the pump, check spark coming from distributor. Good luck. Colin
