have a 2002 vw passat.the oil light started flashing then saw a warning of STOP popped up. oil is fine when checked.flashing oil light goes off for a period of time then starts up again w/STOP warning
You probably need a new oil pump. The old one has a little intake screen which is clogged. The motor may have slugged. Get a good VW h=guy to drop the oil pan and change all the PCV stuff and anything else he advises. Probably need a timing belt soon. Check the cam chain tensioner. Use only synthetic oil and get the larger oil filter. Just went through this myself. 2k in repair bills. Good luck!
That should have read "sludged" not slugged.
