SV: Oil Warning light(HELP US BOTH)

>From -83 with the Scirocco at least VW have a two-way system for
oilpressure. One sender below 1800 rpm and that one is 0,3 bar and one
sender that checks pressure over 1800 rpms and that wants 1 bar or
something. The numbers are not exactly but in the range.

Let me guess, youre light and buzzer comes on on the high side of the
dynamic oil ppressure switch. And it only happens when youre coasting down
gear and the revs hit about 2000 +- 200, most likely goosing the gas will
kill it. My car is in the shop right now for this very problem and I just
spoke with the mechanic who hasnt looked at it yet but thinks its a bad
sending unit and says a either a new unit or a VW oil filter will fix it.
He says VW oil filters have special "valve" in them. But my question is why
would a pressure sending unit be affected by temperature, other than of
course if the oil hotter its thinner right. I just dont see why if thats
the problem it wouldnt be kicking in on the low side and get progressivly
worse with the weeks since it began. Guess this turned out to be more of a
question than a answer huh.
