STOP! Oil pressure low
Our 2004 VW passat keeps saying STOP!
Oil pressure low! We've had this looked at
multiple times and the mechanics can't find
any reason for the cause of this. They have
replaced a few things and it runs great for
about a week and then we get STOP! It's
very frustrating to have tor car in the shop
once a week/2weeks!!! The car has the
correct amount of oil in it. Why can't we find
I can only assume they did a pressure check on the engine,that being said,if it is low oil pressure,then it will be a bad oil pump or internal engine problem,i would thing if it was low oil pressure they would have allready replaced the oil pump,but of this has been done,you may have internal engine problems,
This car probably has not had the correct specification oil used in it. An oil pressure check will show low oil pressure. The oil pan must be removed to inspect the oil pickup tube, which will be plugged with "sludge". Keep an eye for nylon pieces from the cam chain tensioner too; if present the valve cover will also have to be removed to inspect for cam tensioner damage. After this repair be sure to use oil that meets VW specification 502/505. You need to take care of this or the engine will become ruined as its being starved for oil.
