i have just had the same thing happen.

oil was a tad low, popped out to get some 5/30 oil and some Momentum fuel, topped up the oil, it was driving fine then suddenly red oil light came on on dash and the engine sounded like a bag of nails!

i am now parked up waiting for the AA to take me to local garage. i am so upset. i have somehow lost oil pressure which sounds scary!

help!

Hi melgbro, Did the oil light clear & not illuminated again after you topped it up.
If it's stayed off, your prob could be a failed coil pack.
Hoggy. :D

Hi, Lack of power, juddery, & eml on usually coilpack failed. Phone Audi with Reg & VIN & hopefully get them replaced FOC.
Hoggy. :D

No obvious oil pump faults or anything came up on the AA mans computer..... so it was towed to garage and there she rests all lonely for the night until my brother-in-law takes a look in the morning... A tank full of Momentum fuel just sat there [smiley=bigcry.gif]

Did you try Audi? As there is a recall on the coil packs and they will replace them all for FREE if yours hasn't been done. If it is covered put the old ones back on and get 4 new ones, you then have some expensive spares.

Yans hope it is ok.
