Hi I just bought a 2010 VW Tiguan 2.0T 4Motion with known low oil pressure warnings coming on. Got a good enough deal on it so I said why not and bought it.
Anyways when the car is cold started and than driven the Low Oil Pressure warning won’t come on for about 5-6 miles of driving. Than it seems to come on while decelerating or driving around 1500 RPMs but than the warning comes on and off more frequently the longer is gets driven. So with that being said the car is gonna be parked until I have time to dive deeper into it.
Previous owner said the shop told him they found metal shavings in the pan when the pulled it. It was driven maybe 5-10 miles since the pan was first pulled and I decided to pull it again and take my own look but there was nothing in the oil or pick up screen.
So does anyone have a good idea of what could have gone bad? I’m leaning towards maybe a balance shaft issue.? And also do you think it’s worth tearing this motor down and trying to rebuild it or just find a junkyard motor to throw in and hope this doesn’t happen again?
Thanks in advance!
