    Hi guys I'm new on here and wondered if you could help. I have a 2007 a6 tdi avant 140. I was driving on the motorway when red warning came on saying oil pressure low .pulled straight over and it went off. When revs reached 2k it came back on so got it towed home . It has plenty of oil and runs fine on tick over apart from every ten seconds or so it makes a hissing noise, which lasts a couple of seconds . No faults come up when plugged in . any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Engine code ?

    Probably BRE ?

    Do not run the engine anymore till the oil pump drive is fixed .

    There is no code . Sorry to sound daft but what is BRE . Is it an expensive fix if oil pump has gone . Wasn't sure if it may be pressure sensor and just need fresh oil with a clean out .

    Oh dear . Doesn't sound good. Maybe worth selling the car as spares or repair . It's a shame as been a cracking car but maybe not worth spending over a grand to get it fixed .

    It's less than that as the new modified re-enginnered parts are just £197.75 .
