OIL PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT

2002 Volkswagen Beetle

Engine Performance problem
2002 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 80500 miles

2 Days ago my Oil Pressure Light started flashing and a buzzer sounds. It does this once or twice with no real pattern.
The water coolant light has also flashed with it a few times.
I have checked the level in both the oil and the coolant, they both show full.
The owners manual advises contact the dealer and don't drive the car.
The dealer stated it might be low oil pressure or the sensors are bad.
Any thoughts on what it might be?

If it is say the oil pump, what is involved in replacing it?



Thank you

Hi there,

I would have both sensors tested, and get the oil pressure tested with a master gauge, this will give a true indication as to the engine oil pressure.
