Oil light on

4 posts in this topic

Hi....I have a vw bora and having a problem with the oil warning light......I have topped up the oil, which is never below the line and is all ok, every time I start my car the oil warning light beeps at me twice and then goes off, beeps at me few times around town,  so not on any long drives but am hoping to drive to Portsmouth on Sunday...Is there anything I can check my self before I need to take it in to have it checked out...

Many thanks

Just remember your "oil pressure warning light" is a warning that your oil pressure is low NOT YOUR OIL LEVEL!

It could just be a faulty sensor but the best thing to do is have the oil pressure checked to confirm it not low due to a faulty oil pump. Once you've confirmed the pressure is OK and there is no risk to the engine you can focus on the sensor and the wiring.
