May be a little late but...check your oil filter for the long type not the shorter version for vw..With my 97 a4 if the smaller filter is installed at a lube shop it will set the oil light off.They both fit the audi but the smaller one lacks the oil capacity and starves the engine and sets the light off.Even a autoparts store clerk can make the same mistake as ive been there. they are said to be for the same application but are not.
napa #1191 is correct for the 2.8 is the long oe version.

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.


When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

How often does a 2001 Camry LE V6 need an oil change?


ALL Vehicles have the same oil change requirement

You drive 20,000 miles a year div x 5 =every 4,000 miles

You drive 16,500 miles a year div x 4= every 4,125 miles

You drive 12,000 miles a year div x 3=every 4,000 miles

So every 10,13 or 17 weeks

3,4 or 5 times a year you change your oil

Blue thermostat light comes on after driving for 5 miles or so and stays on; after driving for 20 miles or so on occasion the oil pressure light comes on when car slows down and is idling.


when the thermostat in a beetle goes, it stays in the open position, so it could be you blue light is indicating a "cold system",change the thermostat.
the oil light will come on if low on oil or you have a low pressure,try using 10/40 semi synthetic oil.and mloyslip.if no improvement you will need to renew the oil pump.

Jeep 2005 Liberty CRD diesel oil light and beep


I've never seen an oil pressure sensor that costs $750...Likely something else was done to justify that cost. If the light has not come on since the repair, I'd assume that problem has been corrected. If not, have the thing checked out again. If they charged you to repair it, then it should be fixed or, it's their problem!!! You should not be afraid to drive your vehicle. It's a machine, therefore it can and will break sometimes as do all cars. But being afraid to use it is not a solution.

OIL SENSOR LIGHT ON 2001 Audi 2.8liter


It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad early.so noone even tried to reset it.

I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.

On my 1998 landrover discovery the oil light comes on


You do not say if the oil level is ok, or if there are any related problems. Assuming the oil level is OK, it is a very simple system, There is a pressure switch near the oil filter, check the wire from this is not chafing/rubbing on the engine anywhere. If it appears OK, wait until the light is on, take off the connector carefully and check the light has gone off. If the light goes off the pressure switch is faulty. If it stays on you have a short circuit somewhere between the switch and the warning light.

Oil pressure light comes on after driving on highway for 10 miles


Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.
