Seems like you will have to locate the oil leak first and repair it as it sounds like you are loosing pressure.

How to raise the top


common prob. with early xk is the hood fluid turning to jelly, the answer is to clean out the system. ie pipework, resovoir etc. to open the hood, open the valve on the pump, located in boot rh, remove blanking plug in headlining. use allen key to release forward hood latch,the hood can then be worked manually.to change the fluid you have to remove the forward hood latch. disconnect pipes, press the hood switch to pump out the old fluid,remove the pump and drain out the old fluid, work the hood manually 3 or 4 times to extract the remaining old fluid, the correct fluid to put back is pentosill it will bleed itself.if this is not the cause of the prob. then its electrical. go to a auto electrician you will need a wiring diagram of the system to sort that out, its got loads of relays e.t.c. and is controlled through the body processor module.

1993 VW golf 1.8. oil is leaking from oil pressure sending unit, i've replaced the unit but now the low oil warning buzzer is going off (didn't previously do this) and warning light stays (also not a...


It seems the fault is with the oil pressure switch you have replaced. This switch seems to need a higher pressure to cut off and the oil pressure light is coming on because it indicates low.
So if your oil is good , the oil filters were changed recently this fault must not come up. if not replace oil and oil filters to check but keep this option that the fault was never there earlier and a new part can also be faulty.

VW Golf 4 GTI, Oil pressure and vehicle wont start.


If your oil pressure light comes on
Don't ignore it. An oil pressure warning light (or low gauge reading) means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure (for a variety of reasons which we'll get to in a minute), or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed.
The question here is whether you have a serious problem or a minor one.
First, do not keep driving if the oil warning light is on or your oil pressure gauge has dropped. Stop the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level.
Is the level low? If the oil level is down more than two quarts or no oil is showing on the dipstick, adding oil to bring the level back up to the full mark may be all that's necessary to make the light go out. Just keep your fingers crossed that you haven't damaged the engine from running it too low on oil. If you hear rapping or knocking noises the engine starts, you're too late. The damage is done and now you're stuck with the consequences.
Note: On some late model vehicles, the warning light will come on (or a message will appear) if a sensor in the oil pan detects a low oil level. The light is supposed to come on before the level gets low enough to cause any damage.
If your oil level was low, it means your engine is either leaking oil or burning it. Leaks can be fixed by finding and replacing leaky gaskets and seals. Sometimes the oil filter will leak if it isn't installed or tightened properly. But an oil burning problem means the valve guides, rings and/or cylinders are worn or damaged and more costly repairs are needed.
If the dipstick shows a full oil level, then low oil obviously isn't your problem. The oil pressure may be low because of a worn or broken oil pump, a plugged oil pickup screen in the engine's crankcase, possibly a plugged oil filter or excessive bearing wear. Or, the oil pressure may be fine but the oil pressure sending unit has failed. Further diagnosis will be required to determine what's wrong.
Should you attempt to drive your vehicle home or to a service facility?
It's risky. If the problem came on suddenly, your engine does not have a lot of miles on it (less than 60,000) and you noticed no unusual noises (no valvetrain clattering or engine knocking), there's a good chance that all that's wrong is the sending unit. But, there's no way to know for sure without actually checking the engine's oil pressure with a gauge, or replacing the sending unit to see if a new unit makes the light go out. If the problem is only the sending unit, your engine still has oil pressure and you can continue to drive it until the sending unit can be replaced. But, if you're wrong you risk ruining your engine.
If you think you might have a low oil pressure or oil delivery problem because of a bad oil pump or one of the other problems we mentioned, do not drive your vehicle. Doing so only increases the probability of further engine damage. Have the vehicle towed to a service facility for repairs.

Vw polo 1.4 1999 oil light comes on at 3000 revs filter ok oil level ok new oil pump fitted


Had exactly the same problem, completely baffled us until we discovered that the it was the oil pressure switch. We had already replaced it with a new one and then that didnt fix it so we fitted a new oil pump, but as soon as it was revved over 3000 revs the oil light came on. It turns out that there is actually a choice of 2 oil pressure switches for this car (1999 1.4 polo) one works only low pressure (black cap) and is the wrong one, the other works on a higher racio (green cap) its the high pressure one you need. If the oil light was on at tick over or below 3000 revs then its the lower oil pressure switch needed, above 3000 its the higher one. The parts people insisted there was only one, but there is definately a choice of 2 and it fixed ours instantly.
If it was an older model they actually have 2 switches on the car itself and one is a high pressure and one is a low pressure (just incase anyone needed to know)
