Please Help.... I have an 2003 Passat GLX 4 Motion. Its a 2.8L V6. I got the STOP Engine Oil Pressure message recently. I got this message after driving for about five minutes. I shut the car off immediately. The car was placed in neutral was pushed out of the middle of the street. When I checked the oil, you could barely see anything on the stick. I was surprised my oil was so low because my car had its last oil change at 31,400 miles. When I got the message it read 35,200. I knew it was time for an oil change but I figured I had a little time before I rushed right in.
I put 3 quarts of Synthetic oil 5W-40 like the book says. It started fine and I drove home. The next day (4/5) I took it to the dealer. They gave me the line about 1 quart per 1000 miles (now I know it was a line after searching the web). I asked them to check for leaks. Dealer says ok. I told them to go ahead and do the oil change.
The dealer also says there was a recent recall on my car for the fuel pump and that would be fixed as well. I didn't know about that b/c I didn't get a letter yet.
When I got my car back, dealer says no leaks and to check the oil frequently when I go and get gas. This seems crazy.
They also changed the fuel pump, (glad about that b/c I didn't know about that until I found this website; no charge, b/c car is under warranty.)
No explanation about STOP OIL Pressure sign except to keep checking oil.
I am concerned b/c of all the stuff I read here. Does it sound like my car may have a bigger engine problem. Help.
