Oil light on a3 1.8t 2002, pump strainer blockage?
Hi im new to audi's just made a change from vauxhalls :)
I always buy broken cars and repair them i love a project,
any advice from you guys would be well appreciated as i've never woked on an audi or vw before
Audi A3 1.8T 2002 bought cheap from a friend
Oil light flashing and the head is rattling, still starts and drives but hasnt been since the oil light has come on.
there are no leaks plenty of oil in the engine
im thinking this is either due to pump failure, or i have hear about the strainer getting blocked?
as for the head. will fixing the oil pressure problem stop this or has the damage been done and what are the heads like to rebuild?
im a total newbie to this engine so please dont slate me im just trying to gauge how much work i am going to need to do to her.
Thanks. Regards Aaron
