had some issues with my g/f's 96 golf today...was driving along and all of a sudden the oil buzzer/beeper comes on telling me that its time to pull over and turn the car off or else...
kinda odd cause i just checked the oil and it was good, so i pull over pop the hood and look around, oil level still good, but there appeared to be some fresh oil coming from the top of the sender ontop of the oil cooler...IIRC this is the pressure sender NOT the temp sender so I'm thinking that the pressure sender is bad and is sending the warning signal to the buzzer...and i remember having a problem that was sender related on my VR6...
but, i'm curious to see if anyone has had any oil pump problems, i don't ever recall hearing that oil pumps going out were a common ailment on the crossflow motors, but i figured i'd double check and see if anyone has had problems...if so i may delve a little deeper into the motor and put a new pump in for ish and giggles sake...
