Hello people this is my first thread, i was driving the other day to work when suddenly an icon pop on my dashboard, showing a red icon like the oil one :eek:

It happend while driving like 15 minutes, i was at a red light, so when it turn green I parked the car but after parking the warning stop, it was weird, so i kept driving and it turned again (3 beeps) and it did not stop until I got to work :mad:

This happens while driving not while i turn it up, the car does not appear to getting oil in to the engine nor the tube of the oil pump seems blocked :mad: :mad:

It has a 10W-40 Valvoline synthetic oil :D:

What should I do?
Sorry, english is not my first language :rolleyes:

10W40 is TOO THICK for the 1.8 motor!

Also, you have to show us the light, saying LIKE the oil one, doesn't tell
us anything. It's either the oil pressure light or not.

0W40 winter, 5W40 or 5W30 summer, you should not be using 10W40. There are not a lot of VW
certified 10W40 oils. Valvoline is NOT certified for use in VW motors.
