    People have already pointed out to you that it's the pick up pipe and strainer that needs changing. Very common on the 1.8T engine. DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR AT ALL until you have had a sump drop and the parts replaced. No matter how you change the wording of the question, the answer will always come back to the pick up pipe and strainer are blocked.

    If you're not confident in carrying the work and don't want to use a garage, ask around and a forum member who lives close by may come and assist you/do the work for you for beer tokens, tea and biscuits.
