Having problems with your 2000 Audi A4 ?
My oil light turned on in the cluster and i thought it was a sensor so I changed the oil pan sensor and left the shop,it stoped until the car warmed up and the sensor turned back on again during up or down hills the machanic told me before as he changed the sensor that have leaks somewhere from the oilpan but didn't tell me where, so I phoned him and he told me to come back he got in my car and reved untill the sensor went off and he told me I was loosing oil pressure and didn't tell me anything
Hello. Hopefully I can help clarify things for you. The sensor just senses the amount of pressure you have and lets you know if it's low. The oil pump pumps oil from the pan to higher parts of the engine via the valley (just under the intake manifold for the lifters etc...) Oil PRESSURE is created by the main engine bearings on the crankshaft. When the mechanic revved the engine the higher rpm caused the engine to turn faster making it able for the main bearings to create enough pressure to turn it off.\015\012The easiest way to explain how they create pressure is probably like saying something like...Think of being in a swimming pool. If you put your fingers together, cup your hand, and try to splash someone slowly...what happens? Now do the exact same thing quickly and you splash them. Higher pressure from the same hand that did nothing.\015\012You may be able to find a good used engine on Car-part.com. It's a salvage yard resource from vehicles that have been junked. Quite often the primary damage to them is from an accident.\015\012I hope I've helped. If so, please rate my answer, and leave a comment. I wish you good luck.
