First before any solution can be found you need to get the vehicle scanned with an obd II scanner (on board diagnostic) if you take it to autozone they will scan it for free and also tell you the definition of the obd II codes. along with a list of problems that can cause whatever codes it is you have. after that try listing these codes on here and you might have better luck getting tips. also if you got gas before this code came on check and make sure the gas cap is on its incredibly common where people will get gas not put the cap on and will get an obd II code that either reads mass evap leak or small evap leak.

I have a 1998 VW Beetle and Im trying to locate the alarm/buzzer that comes on with the oil light. I need to unhook it. ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY! HELP!!!


First thing, check your oil pressure. Even if you check the oil level, if the oil pump is going bad then the oil pressure isn't high enough to keep the engine lubricated- that's probably why you hear the alarm. You'll end up needing to rebuild the engine if you drive too much without the proper oil pressure. If you're really sure you want to disable the alarm you'll need to remove the dash to get to the buzzer and disconnect the wires. You can also experiment with removing the fuse for the instrument cluster, but you'll lose all your dash lights too. Good luck.

2004 Passat stop engine low oil pressure light was on checked oil..level is fine. Sounds like lifters clacking. Any ideas what could b going on


You have low oil pressure ! Do not drive ! Sounds like the engine main bearings and or cam bearing in worn causing low oil pressure ! Make sure your oil is in good condition ! If so then unfortunately your engine is worn and will probably require replacement !

Light is on does that mean immediate problem?


Do you have a working temp gage? If not it could be an overheating issue and ruin your motor. More than likely it just an o2 sensor, but any code could hurt your gas mileage. Most auto parts stores will hook up a scanner for free and give you an idea what is wrong.

Engine light came on


You should never drive with a red engine light there is always the risk of further damage to engine,this could mean no or low oil pressure driving like that will damage the engine. Check oil level first check coolant level and get back to me.

The oil pressure light and alarm keeps going off on my 2000 vw polo. it is only when the engin is warm after approx 10 miles. sump and strainer have been cleaned and also new sensor been fitted and oil...


Incorrect level. Check level at operating temps and while the engine is running. By sump and stainer you meant that you removed the oil pan off the car and cleaned the pickup tube of the oil pump? I'd suggest hooking up an oil pressure gauge so you'll know which part of the engine is starving oil and setting the warning.

My temperature light keeps coming on and off..how do i solve this problem


Hi,
I rather actual temperature gauges over lights, since you know if you're truly running hot or not.
In your case, I would recommend that when this happens, have someone use a thermal indicator (maybe autozone can do this) to see what your engine temp is and see if it's running hot. The light is tripped by a sensor that is activated by excessive heat from the engine.
If the engine temp is normal, replace the sensor. If it's hot:
1. Make sure you're oil level is good
2. Make sure the coolant level is good
3. Make sure the water pump is working
(I'll assume your radiator is not stopped up)
4. Consider replacing the thermostat.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Audi a4 2000 cold temp


your thermostat is stuck open not letting the engine get up to operating temp. You probably are not getting very good heat out of the vents either. the oil light is a serious concern though even if you oil level is good there is a good chance you have oil sludge build up clogging you oil pick up tube. this happens on older 1.8t i am assuming that is what you have. That is a job for a shop they will need to replace oil pick up tube quite a few breather hoses and seals this is not a cheap fix. and it is also very labor intensive. You might also want to do water pump and timing belt as well when they are in there it will be about 2000 or so this would not be a job i would take to an outside shop. audi knows what they are doing would be a good idea to go there.
