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.

Warning buzzer and oil light flash on VW Golf 1.3 Model 1987, oil levels are fine, this happens as soon as I start driving


You should see 2 sensors on the oil filter housing. These are oil pressure sending units. Check the electrical connections and wires first. Make sure everything is good, no corrosion, no cracks or breaks in the insulation and no broken wire strands at the connections. If everything is good then one of those sending units is bad. Hope this helps.

check to make sure the oil pressure sensore is working correctly,, you might need a new sensor.
could also be a sign that you are not getting enough oil pressure and this could be caused by a bad oil pump. but check the sensor first and see if this solves the problem.

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.

Gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf


Get someone to check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, to verify whether you have oil pressure or not. These engine/vehicles, have 2 warning sensors & a control module in the instrument panel. Once you know you have pressure for sure, then you can proceed from there.

Gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf


There are two pressure switches. One for oil pressure and one for a dirty oil filter. Are you sure you've changed the right switch. If car drives for 30 mls it doesn't sound like you need an engine. The spluttering is likely to be completely unrelated to the oil warning I suspect.

Engine oil indicator blinking


Sounds like it could be a sludge issue which can be caused from using the incorrect oil. It is a very specific synthetic type of oil that VW suggests and when you don't use it the engine can actually 'gunk' up and cause turbo failure. (This problem happened when a non-vw dealer sold me my car with the wrong type of synthetic in it and my turbo seized)

GOLF 1.9 TD 1996


Hi

The light and buzzer are indicating low oil pressure and therefor if there is enough oil in th engine then you should have the oil pressure tested because you could have, amingst other things, a worn oil pump, a clogged strainer or a sticking oil filter check valve

Maybe you could try an oil and filter change using a good quality oil filter?

Very best regards
