Can anybody help? I have an Audi A4 18T 51 plate. The oil pressure light came on a few days ago. the oil levels are fine. Have had it serviced - engine flushed through oil filter changed. All was ok for about 30 miles then the oil pressure light has come on again.
Does anybody have any suggestions?

we have an audi a4 19tdi our oil pressure light started coming on and we seemed to have oil in the engine, this went for for a few weeks, to cut a long story short our turbo ended up burning out, not sure what you have to do to avoid this but id get it checked out.

thats right, Mine was same Came on, Oil in the engine, Ran ok. Came on and off few times over the weeks then Bang engine and turbo went suddenly on the M1 on way back from a 400mile round trip!!!!!.

Get you Oil pick up pipe checked for Oil Sludge, Common problem.
Did they check the oil pump to make sure its pumping the oil around properly???? Its ok you taking the cap off and watching the oil pump around but thats not the way to do it.

Dont ignore the warning mate, I did and had to pay for it BIG time.
Get it booked back in asap and get them to check oil pressure, Check for Oil sludge aswell.

Seriously I wouldnt want anyone to go through what I did. Hefty bill!!
