Having problems with your Volkswagen Camper ?

I have a VW tdi (t4) transporter, which occasionally (2 months ), shows a red oil pressure light for a short period and then, ofter checking the oil is OK it is fine to drive. Today it did the same, but instead the RPM went volatile and could not start the car. I waited an hour and everthing is perfect and could drive 100klms without incident. Could this be the oil filter or electrical reader problems?

Answers :

The red pressure alarm light is normally activated if you do not have enough oil flow and pressure to the engine.
It can be caused by:
  • Not enough oil: check level and top-up. Engine might be burning too much oil or leaking.
  • \015\012
  • Clogged Oil filter: change oil filter and oil.
  • \015\012
  • Leaking oil seals: check for any large oil stains and drips under the car.
  • \015\012
  • Oil pan pump faulty: you need a special tool to check the oil pump pressure - see your auto mechanic.
  • \015\012
  • Oil pressure sensor is faulty and causing false alarm: see auto mechanic.
Hope the above are of some assistance.
