Oil pressure sensors are generally easy to replace -unplug wire(s), unscrew & screw in new one. The trick is getting to it with simple tools. Most shops will get 2 hours labor to replace.

How do I confirm that my oil light is not functioning when it's confirmed that the oil pressure is good?


REmove the wire from the sender unit and earth on the engine next to it. If the light dosen't come then it is probably blown or you have a fuse problem in that circuit

1989 VW cabriolet oil pressure warning light on at low rpm and idle. Oil pressure gauge shows sub 1 bar at same time. Is this a sending unit problem, or an oil pump problem? Where are sending units? ...


The Oil light is a dreaded sight, especially at idle. Usually if an oil pump fails, it dies, the same with an oil pressure sender. I had the same problem with a 97 neon, at idle the oil light comes on... (192,000 miles). If the oil used at the oil change was a thinner viscosity than what was in there, that could cause it. If not, it could be bearings going bad on the motor creating a low pressure situation. I fixed it by going to a thicker viscosity, from 5w-30 to 10w-30, and in a week the light went off... this was 7 months ago. Just food for thought, hope this helps.

High oil pressure


You can't go by the gage on the dash, you need to hook up a manifold gage to get an accurate reading. Did you check the oil filter bypass valve AKA oil relief valve?

How hard is it to change a thermostat in a 1989 vw cabriolet?


Not a difficult job at all, just a tad-bit messy. Will need to follow the hose from the radiator to find the mounting location of the thermostat on the engine block.

The engine just quit in the middle of the road after I stepped on the clutch there was no warning. it appears to have something to do with the fuel preasure. Is there a kill switch? My oil is very low but...


VW doesn't install kill switches on their vehicles. A "very low" oil level can cause some of the newer VW's to not run, but this would be very unusual for a 1989 unless the oil level is off the dipstick. May want to raise the oil level nand check the fuses.

Can't be any more help not knowing the model of VW you have, sorry.

I would say you might have a weak oil pump. you should try and change the sensor first so u can make sure that its not the sensor.
