This may be your oil pressure indicator as well as level. If you are losing oil pressure you want to get that looked at as soon as possible. If you have an oil pressure failure your engine will lose lubrication and will overheat and seize up. You would end up replacing your engine if you run it without oil pressure. I reccomend having a garage look at it possibly with a scan tool as well.

Beetle oil pressure light flashes when engine is cold


You did not say how cold it is but I am guessing that the viscosity is not correct for the temperature and the oil is too heavy for the job.. May be an oil change to the correct viscosity oil would help.

What type of oil do i use in my audi a6 2.8 quartto


5w30 is recommended up to 100 degrees. over that and it is recommending a 20w50. I would use a good synthetic 5w30 which is good for much higher temperatures and will easily perform well in the +100 degree range as well as the -0 temp range. Mobil 1 or Amsoil fit the bill nicely.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.
