When have you checked the oil level recently? Short beeps/chimes indicate a low oil condition. If you are just a bit low it could be that it comes on when more oil is in the engine and less in the oil pan. (the chime is set off by the oil pump pressure sensor). It could be sensing it is dry/low pressure. If you are in the US what kind of oil are you using on your TDI. No insult intended but unless the dealer is changing your oil, or you are.. most oil change shops figure foreign car = castrol 20w50 oil! That is SO wrong for your TDI. 1. Check your oil regularly.. A diesel will burn oil more than a standard gasoline engine. 2. Change oil regularly.. where regularly is dependent on the type of oil being used. If you are using STANDARD "dinosaur" oil then you should keep to intervals of no more than 5K miles between changes. If you are using SYNTHETIC 100% then you can extend the change intervals up to 10K miles depending on quality of oil and driving habits. NOTE Check adn Change are two diffferent things. You should check oil everytime you get gas, make it a habit. As for the proper oil. You require VW 505 which is a European standard.. the US equivalent code is a C rated oil for COMPRESSION ignition engines.. meaning DIESELS. Look on back of oil bottle and make sure its rated C-H, C-F, or C-I to meet your requirements. I run a TDI myself and use Mobil 1 Synthetic Turbo Truck and Diesel motor Oil with a WIX filter. For more tips and tricks on your TDI I suggest a website called www.tdiclub.com its amazing the knowledge on that site that is purely for the TDI motors.

My car alarm goes off for no reason


I have the same problem with my Z3 alarm going off, a local BMW specialist has traced it to the pitch sensor which has been damaged due to a water leak, the wires are also corroded. They have quoted £200 to fix it, but advise that the water leak is sealed first because it'll just get damaged again. I've had a look round and it appears the water is getting in by the off side light cluster via the boot gutter.

Alarm warning system on '02 Mercury Mariner 150HP E.F.I.-


Engine tank should be plumb full tight. The engine supplies about 2 lbs pressure through one of the 2 lines going to the boat tank. The other line takes the oil to the engine tank. If that line gets kinked or pinched, the engine tank won't get oil, a check valve lets a little air into it, and the oil pump keeps getting oil. When it goes down just a little, the alarm goes off telling you something is wrong.

Sludge in the boat tank could plug up the pickup screen. I've also seen them plugged up by a foil oil bottle seal carelessly dropped into the tank.

Once you find out why the oil couldn't get there, start the engine with the cowl off and loosen the cap on the engine oil tank until it leaks, then tighten it down and clean up the mess. That tank is normally plumb full tight.

If when the engine is running, you crack the cap on the boat tank, you should hear pressure let off. If the cap leaks, it won't build up pressure. If there is pressure, the oil line is plugged or kinked.

If pressure isn't supplied, the problem would be the crankcase check valve on the engine, lower forward starboard side, with the hose going to it.

hope it helps
