  1. 2.8l 12v VR6 Engine Forum
    Hi, I have a 1999 VW Caravelle/Eurovan 2.8l petrol, vr6 enigne (AES code). My oil light has been coming on recently, when the engine gets to temp. It has oil, so maybe to do with oil pressure or temperature? One thing I'm trying is replacing the pressure and temp sensors/switches on the oil...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So I replaced my oil pump, oil pan, and oil sensor. buzzer keeps coming on above 1500 rpm. (y) I checked the sensor and it closes when engine is running at idle and above 1500 still closed - operating correctly. (y) checked the sending wire all the way to rear of cluster and there's...
  3. Golf III & Jetta III
    Hey all. I have a 1995 Golf GL I bought a few months ago after it'd been sitting a year. It's got a lot of kinks I'm working out. The latest is dropping oil pressure going up a long, steep incline. Oil pressure alert went off, I immediately pulled over. It wasn't a sensor issue as I could...

  5. Golf II & Jetta II
    I’ve been experiencing some pretty strange oil pressure issues. A few days ago the oil pressure light came on and the gauge read 80psi (way too high). I assumed it was because of the cold weather, but I did an oil and filter change anyway. The car settled down at idle after a long period of...
  6. Passat (B7)
    So recently, I've had this warning go off twice. I've had it go off three times since I've had the car and every single time it would be after I started up the car. The first time it went off (about February or March of this year I'd say), I went and got and oil change. The warning has never got...
  7. Golf/GTI VII
    MK7 oil pressure? I randomly get low pressure warning on my 15 GTI. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't duplicate it. It doesn't happen often. But when it does I have noticed it go off city driving around 20-35 mph. Oil level is good as I had the dealership do a change on it. They...
  8. Passat (B3 & B4)
    Hi, Does anyone know what the desired oil pressure range is in the 2.0litre engine in the B4? In the Haynes manual they mention 2bar as a minimum at 2000rpm, is there any maximum recommended pressure? I measured my car and it was showing between 4 and 7bar which I feel is a bit high but maybe...
  9. Golf V & Jetta V
    Hey guys so I got the red oil pressure light last week on my Mk5 GLI with 203k miles and I've been trying to figure out how to fix this. I did hook up a manual gauge to the sender port and I got ~15psi cold idle and ~50psi @ 2k cold (I didn't want to leave the engine running long enough to warm...

  11. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hi, I am a total nerd and I would like to know the oil pressure my Jetta is making, I know the vehicle’s computer measures oil pressure but I was wondering if I could display it in the stock system without having to install a sending unit.

  17. 3.6l 24v VR6 Forum
    I am having a very strange issue. The initial issue was that I had a broken timing chain guide. I took the engine out and replaced both timing chains, both tensioners, all the guides, and the oil pump sprocket. After reassembly, I now have no oil pressure. (Also, worthy of note, I got a code...
