    Oil could be the oil pump.... IIRC the warning is for pressure not level.

    You could try a scrappers for the seal.

    I got the updated RF pump from simos, and a set of keys of ebay. All I needed to do was take the immo chip out of the old keys, got some key blanks cut, fit them to the new keys and sync the keys to the pump via vagcom.

    It was a ball ache job to do and I'm never doing it again !!! lol !!!

    Total cost...... just under £50

    You really need to get the sump of the car and clean it out. I had a 96 1.8T Turbo Sport which did this as well and the sump was bunged up with small chunks of carbonised oil. The pickup on the oil filter was getting clogged up.

    The sump was dropped, which is an awkward job, and fully cleaned and a new oil pump put on (£80 from GSF) oil feed to turbo was changed as well although it didnt look too bad inside. The car never showed the problem again.

    I see your other thread on a glowing turbo. What do you think a turbo does when it doesnt get enough oil....... heats up alot then goes bang.

    Do it before either the turbo blows or you sieze an engine, its slightly cheaper at this stage.
