    oil pressure warning light

    hi everyone

    help needed. i bought my first golf last week ,1.6se v reg, drove great after picking it up, 40 mile trip on way home. it sat on drive for three days while i sorted insurance over. went out yesterday and the oil pressure warning light came on after driving it for about ten min round town. i turned engine off checked the oil all seems ok. started up again fine no noises or anything fifty yards down the road did it again. iv read lots of posts on google and uk-mkiv website and have found no deffinite answer. is it the speed sensor? is it the oil pick up pipe? or do i need to just do oil change? please please help. thanx

    try to tap into an oil port with a manual oil pressure gauge (if you have one handy) to get a reading. maybe your oil pressure switch is faulty?

    if you don't know when the oil was last changed, then a change is definitely in line...

    Same thing is happening to my my golf 1.6 1999 do you experience some juddering before the oil pressure light comes on? I also find it only happens at around 4000 rpm... also have looked around everywhere for a solution but no one seems to shed any light, had car serviced and problem still persists.

    have you tried a different oil filter, perhaps one purchased from vw?
