Oil pressure light comes on when engine warms up.replaced oil pressure switch .still the same . its an audi a3 2002

Dear John,
I am glad you only replaced that switch!
The best action to take for that symptom is to have a mechanic unscrew that O P switch and insert a oil pressure gauge and test the oil pressure with a meter, hot and cold.
If it is not up to par when hot, there are several possibilities.
1) If the oil is fresh & the right viscosity, you could have a failing or a leaking oil pump. It can leak inside the engine.
2) You may have a plugged up oil screen on the oil pump.
3) You may have a bearing or some other such part failing causing an engine oil hemorrhage inside the motor.
An authorized and helpful Audi dealership should be able to tell you if other Audis are having this problem and what is causing it.
God bless your efforts.

Audi allroad wont start

Get it back to whomever did the job. Or maybe take it to someone who knows what they're doing. Turbo line is obviously leaking. If it's not cranking even with a jump you may have seized he engine. 2.7's are not cheap!

My audi has a oil leak of some sort which is leaking into the air filter unit and has soaked my air filter, the oil leak is coming form aline that runs along the top and side if the air intake unit. why...

follow the line backwards down to the block and clean the breather(if fitted) this is not an oil leak, the pipe is there to **** up the engine pressure when decelerating.........the air filter should be changed every 20 thousand miles/2 years.....

Large amount of white smoke from exhaust and loss of water from the system. No visible leaks.

ok open your oil cap and see if its creamy inside there
if it is there is water getting into the head
caused by blown head gasket
if not just get back to me and ill find the other soulution
