Don't think so.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

In the last week got car serviced including oil and filter change. Now red light is on but plenty of oil and no sign of leak. Car sounds fine. 2002 VW Golf 1.4


I would check to see if you have a level sensor at the bottom of oil pan. If not, there is an oil sensor that plugs into the block that can send a signal to guage also. Both are fairly common.

I have put waaayyyy to much oil in my vw golf 2002 and I need to drain it but I can't seen to find where I drain it from also is there anything else that I will need to do after this? Thanks


You will have to take the under tray off to access the sump drain bung, the bung is normally a 19mm spanner size, Don't run engine until oil is correct level, as damage can be done to catalytic convertor. ( you will have to jack car up pretty high to remove cover, and be sure to use axle stands to secure vehicle )

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

Computer saying oil press, stop motor , also the temperature guage is not going up to its normal 90degrees, and the emmissions are smokey, i havent noticed a difference in fuel consumption so i am guessing...


Hi. well that light means that you have a low oil pressure probably because you have been using the regular conventional oil instead using syntetic oil thats what causes clogs inside the engine because this type of car uses syntetic oil so if i was wanting to fix that myself ill start by using an engine flush before every oil change (remember to use syntetic oil) and that might help but ill be wise to take it to a garage just to make sure it has oil pressure.

i think it means you need to add oil,,,if you got a oil light comming on that means its low on oil and a ticking noise that also means its low on oil,,,change your oil asap before you ruin the engine

Vw Golf 98 clicking sound from engine when starting


If it just clicks when you are trying to start, the battery is low, near dead and needs recharge or replace.
If it starts and strange clicking continues, it is a sign of hydraulic valve lifters not functioning properly --which can be caused by low oil pressure (because of low oil level or bad oil pump). If the battery is good and drains dead after a while --something is connected that should not be. Even your dome light can do that --or the headlights on --or the parking lights on. Check the oil level, if low, add oil and check again.

Oil indicator blinks and buzzer sound in VW golf


The 2.3 l gasoline engine uses 20W50 oil above 20 degrees F. I used a lower viscosity oil and had the same problem until I went to the 20W50 oil.

VW Golf 51 Plate Oil Pressure Indicator Light


Hi.
The "oil light" measures the oil pressure in the engine, not the oil level in the sump. I would not drive it an inch until I had it checked by a competent mechanic. New engines are expensive!

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
