    Driving my leon this morning and sudden had the oil light come on with 3-4 loud beeps. oil light is now flashing.
    I topped the oil up yesterday so was a bit baffled. i immediatly stopped and checked the oil anyway and its still full. any ideas what it means, i cant seem to find what it means. Any help would be great.

    Seen this in another post...

    If the warning lamp is red or yellow or
    flashes it indicates that the engine oil
    pressure or level is too low. This warning
    lamp will also light up if there is a defect
    in the oil level indicator.
    If lights up or flashes red
    (insufficient oil pressure)
    Should the warning light flash or light up
    while driving you will also hear three
    times an acoustic warning as soon as the
    engine runs at over 1500 r.p.m. You must
    stop the car and turn the engine off: check
    the oil level and top up if necessary. See
    the "Engine oil" chapter.
    If the warning lamp flashes even though
    the oil level is in order, do not continue
    driving. Do not even run the engine at
    idling speed. Call in expert assistance.
    If while driving the engine speed decreases
    below idling speed the oil pressure
    warning lamp may light up. Increase
    engine speed by accelerating or changing
    down gear.

    Oil pressure...?

    the oil pump/balance shaft assembly is a disaster of a design..
    sump off and check for debris and not run it until checked if mine.
