Oil light


Asked by Feb 20, 2016 at 08:21 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My oil light comes on after my car warms up. I had
the oil pressure switch replaced, oil change and
new filter w an engine flush. My mechanic that
replaced the switch today said it's normal and to
give it time but it makes me nervous. No over
heating and levels are good
