Oil pump check valve stuck closed. Make sure the sender unit is sending the correct signal.
Depends on whats wrong. If the sender is wrong, no. If the pump needs to be replaced then yes. The failure is most likely from sludge in the pump and the engine will have to be completely flushed of all sludge so it does not happen again.
I thought vw paid 4 it since there was a recall or something about the sludge? Is that true?
Sludge is your responsibility to change the oil at the intervals required by te manufacturer.

Cant tell without seeing it and examing it. It would be worth your while to take it somewhere nad have them evaluate it for you. It would be the best 50 bucks you ever spent on a car.
