Bear in mind. Bearings will fail and cause low oil pressure before an oil pump fails.

is the fan working? Do you see any leaks anywhere? Look into thermastat, water pump, radiator, and hoses, for leaks or if working properly. See if your fan is coming on when it is supposed to. With that you should have an idea of what you need to do.

Where is the oil pressure sensor of vw golf 1999


The sensors are usually found on the oil filter flange housing with the oil cooler. Also there are two dynamic sensors to measure pressure below 2000 rpm and above 2000 rpm so it could warn you of pressure loss within those two ranges.

91 vw golf will not stay running after 15 minutes


You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.

VW Golf 2001, V4 Oil tank is empty approxi after 2000 miles


Because your car is consuming so much oil, you need to check the level often, so the level won't go down more than one quart. You will get an idea how long you can drive the car before it is down one quart, and should keep the level at the full mark. You should change the oil filter, as it is still collecting contaminants.
Have you checked the spark plugs condition? It seems the oil consumption will result in the plugs being fouled soon . Keep that oil level up, or the result will be a seized engine. Also, I'm guessing the tail pipe shows black residue, another sign of high oil consumption. This is probably why someone sold this car, they didn't want to deal with an expensive repair of an engine rebuild. You are correct, an oil change should be done every 3k miles.

Awaiting service light


Hi.
If it was serviced by a garage without VAG diagnostic software they may have been unable to reset the service interval warning.Or maybe they just forgot.

I doubt, (but I'm not 100% sure) that it means anything other than what it says. For the cost of an interface cable - about £15 -and the use of a laptop computer you can run free VAG diagnostic and reset it yourself. And check a zillion other things.

If you are worried, just open the bonnet / hood and check the oil and water the old fashioned way :-)

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further.
Cheers, D
