Hi all. I need some help. I have a 2010 CC sport 2.0T. A light came on for about 3-5 seconds flashing and beeping and it read something along the lines of low oil pressure, stop engine. I cut off the engine since I was at a red light then turned it right back on. At no point did the engine ever sound weird. I decided to check the oil and the dipstick was pretty much bone dry. So I stopped at the pep boys that happened to be right there and bought a couple quarts of oil and filled until the dipstick was in the normal range. Again, at no point did the light come back on with that beeping or message except for initially. Nor did the engine ever sound weird.

I plan on checking the oil level every day and of course listening to the engine to check for it not sounding right.

What do you guys think the possible problems may be given my description and would it be expensive? I really can’t afford to put a lot more money into this car. I recently replaced the water pump, intake manifold and had to do a cam reseal due to an oil leak. So this car is becoming a money pit.

Help please!!

The turbo burns a lot of oil also check for any leaks underneath the car before moving it you might have a loose oil pan plug or gasket or a bad rear main seal

I second the checking other parts for leaks. Once you have discovered that your engine ran low on oil it is something you need to watch. And it sounds like that is your plan. But also if you have been doing work on the cam and engine perhaps a gasket is not doing its job so you have a good leak going on someplace.

You might find putting a clean piece of cardboard, about 3 feet by 3 feet under the car after you have driven in for a bit. That will show you were the oil is coming from under the influence of gravity. But you may need to track those drips to the side or top to find the origin of them in the first place.

I doubt if you did damage to the car since you turned it off and then quickly added the oil. I always carry a spare qt.

Don't you know that we are supposed to check oil level with every fill up? Who even does that anymore. But it used to be standard practice.
