You've probably hit something on the road that's put a hole in the oilpan. Not uncommon on these models. Years ago, VW used to offer an oilpan protector on the Type 17's and there was a good reason for that.

Oil change but oil continues to blink


Simple check first. Check your oil and make sure it is reading correctly on the dipstick. If it is low then add oil and watch everyday to see if the oil drops. If it is dropping quick enough to notice in a day or two then you have a leak somewhere an need to find that. A pressure test may need to be done as well to make sure oil pressure is high enough.

without a good look i dont think i could help as yes iam a europeon mechanic but a VW is a common enough vehicle here but iam thinking cam belt here but ?? yes it could be head gasket as the oil light switch is on the head top back left side and if the gasket has failed then it could be pumping oil into piston and not going up to the head to put the oil light out ,I would strongly advise you ask a local mechanic to put his head under the bonnet and give a second opinion from on the job .

The blinking is a single that continued driving without fixing the problem may ruin the emission systems and the motor itself. It needs to go to a qualified repair shop to be checked out.

Oil pressure light is blinking.


It's very possible a coincidence and that the flashing oil light is the oil pressure switch. I'd check it out immediately to make sure there's sufficient oil flowing through the engine. Merely jump starting the car shouldn't have knocked anything loose so to be on the safe side, assume there's an oil pressure issue. You were right to not use the car in the interim.
