    'Engine oil pressure' warning light on 2004 Audi S4

    Hi, I recently bought a 2004 Audi S4 in immaculate condition and full Audi service history from a reputable dealer. 1 day into ownership, and after having driven 30 miles a red warning light 'engine oil pressure' came up - I checked the engine oil level and it was fine - car is in garage now and they suspect it might be a faulty sensor - but should I be worried about the health of the engine? What is the likely cause? Sensor fault? Any expereicnes with this sort of message?

    Thanks

    Simon

    yes be worried and dont drive or start it till its been checked
    if its pick up pipe blocked you run the risk of ****ing your engine
    make sure they do a good check
    worst of its gonna be sump off new pick up pipe and ur sorted

    btw the oil preasure light aint nothing to do with low oil theres a diff light for that

    Yellow oil can symbol on DIS = low oil level, top up as soon as convenient

    Red oil can symbol on DIS = low oil pressure, turn off engine immediately and do not start it again until problem is found and fixed

    pick up pipe connects to the oil pump
    pulls oil from the sump
    and depends on the garages labour charges the pick up aint to much but its a sump off job

    did you try the sensor 1st ?
