96' volkswagen jetta, 105k. My car has a bizare oil pressure problem. After only about ten minutes of normal driving, my oil pressure light comes on, flashing, and beeping. I have a coolant light that is always on, regardless of how much coolant is in my car, I dont know if the two problems are connected. Also, I have a check engine light that comes on periodically, and when it is illuminated, it has a drastic decrease in power and acceleration. I noticed that I get some sort of pressure leak after a descent drive, something maybe sounding like coolant, radiator hose or something, and eventually if its driven long enough, it smells like burning oil, and I have noticed smoke a few times. Also, I can here something of a valve chatter or noise, upon acceleration, only after it has been driven for a little while. I dont know if all these problems are connected, but maybe I could just get a few tips as to were to start looking, or what to look for.
have the same problem?
