Driving my car today the oil light came on along with 3 beeps. I stopped straight away and checked the oil, all was ok.
I decided to limp home (only 3 miles) and have a browse online.
After reading someone suggested checking the oil sensor, so i checked it was connected properly (removed cleaned and replaced) and went for a drive.
All was going well until about 15 mins later the light came back on. Bugga. I was going to limp home (again not too far) until it started to sound rough. (noisy like a tractor) i stopped straight away and got a tow home.
From research - the pick up lines sound blocked so its unable to suck oil and Hence it sounding like a dirty diesel.
I guess the best bet is getting a tow to the garage and getting the pickup and the sump cleaned. Is this correct? How much should i be looking at?
I wondered if it would end up cheaper getting new parts rather than pay labor on the parts being cleaned.
The car was last serviced less than 1000 miles ago with the correct oil, and vagcom shows no errors.
