2004 new beetle: engin light comes on during acceleration and noise around valve cover. Compression check provides 180 to 210 PSI. Dip stick indicates oil level full.


There will be a code stored if the light has been activated, it is guess work without the code.

VAG have numerous common issues (BUT STILL A GREAT CAR)

Get the code, let me know what it is then I can advise the cheapest route to take

Kind regards

You may need to reset the "service interval" light. A manual or online resource should be able to tell you how.

As long as the filter was also changed and the oil is the correct viscosity rating, you have nothing to worry about.

Reading the gauge on the oil dipstick 1998 saab 900


The dip stick end should have a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full. A level reading anywhere between the two bulbs is adequate but not optimal. Oil below the top end of the bottom bulb, means 1 quart low, and no oil at all on the bottom bulb means get some oil in there double quick.

Dip stick reading


The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs. 
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace. They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces. The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels. 
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.
