Have you checked the engine dipstick to ensure that the oil level is correct? A very low oil level will cause light to come on. Top up oil if necessary. If oil level is OK, then it is possible that the warning light pressure switch which is screwed into the engine oil pressure system is faulty and setting off light and needs replacing. There could even be oil leaking out of the switch. The switch is usually located near the oil filter and will have a wire connected to it.
If after replacing switch and light still comes on, it would mean badly worn engine bearings.

Flashing oil light audi a4 1997 on the dashboard


Your oil pressure is low. It could be your oil pump going bad or you could be just a bit low on oil. Be sure and top off the oil with a good synthetic oil, or, to be safe, get the oil changed (could also be sludge).

Hi Dave
I'd take a guess and say replace the oil filter. Your problem seems to be related to a leakage from the filter.

I have a audi a4 1.8 turbo the dash panel is flashing oil


it may be bad, i would replace that and see if the light comes back on,its easy to change ive done a few,just drain the oil then remove bolts and remove, install new gasket with new one,theres a way to bypass to test, i belive if you just unplug it or jump the wires,you can try both ways first before replacing it,if it has more than two wires going to it then dont try jumping it, just replace it, good luck.

Oil light flashing


hi,
The most likely cause is a faulty oil pressure switch as there are up to 3 fitted get it checked ASAP could be low oil pressure!!
I take it this is the oil light flashing not "oil" in the dash insert ?

it's a coil- these are commonly going out on audi's...it happend to me. it's like you are running on 2 cylinders instead of 4- you need to get it replaced- it's about 75 bucks.

A4 2.0 miss fire


The four-cylinder Audis are known to have issues sometimes with the coil packs. Can you have your car's ECU scanned for fault codes? You may have a stored code even if the check engine light isn't on. If you have no codes, I'd look at changing the plugs at the very least, and make sure they're gapped to factory spec. Then get some Seafoam at the parts store and do the vacuum system with it - see if that helps, and if not, post back up and we'll take it from there.
