Turn off engine oil pressure light comes on
So here is the problem just got an oil change yesterday
and oil pressure switch changed as well now it was doing
it before then these changes were the remedy at least I
thought how can I fix this btw oil pump is working
Have it TOWED back to whomever replaced the pressure sensor/switch, and if its not a jiffy lube or one of those express places, have them run a diagnostic. Yes, its going to cost $90- $100. But price an engine out on that VW... $2500-$3000? Im just guessing, but if you have had those parts fixed it has to be sensor or a glitch. Either way, its not something I would recommend you drive the car, and "see what happens". Best of luck !
The problem with this is we have already gotten this far it is ample oil in the vehicle so I ha e an appointment with them but they have looked and said it should not be coming on and o could drive it I just want to the noise off until then
It was doing it before- and you thought this might fix it? So, if you were driving it with the oil light on, I guess you were used to that, and a tow is unnecessary at this point- taking it back to the guys who did the oil change is meaningless because you told them what to do, you did not ASK them for a diagnosis- or did you? what did they say? that the oil pump is good? how do they know? all of this sounds suspicious to me- maybe if you told us what the original problem was- I have to play Sherlock here to figure out what you are saying- anyway if I get your drift, the oil light came on, right? and you replaced the switch- better to find out if the engine is ok- it could just be the age of the engine- good luck
Get yourself and OBDII reader off Amazon for $15 and reset the codes when the light comes on. The only problem with this is that when there is a REAL issue, you will not know it, and it could be a huge expense. If a local shop cannot fix something or guarantee their work then it is time to escalate things, take it to the dealer. They will know exactly how to fix it.
