About 2 weeks ago I am leaving work and I get this message.
"STOP OIL PRESSURE"
I turned my phone on and got video of it here:

I let it sit for 2 days and drove it home. I then let it sit for maybe a week and I turn the car on to no instrument panels working and it feels different when it shifts gears... I have no clue what to do, and I want to sell it.

A common problem is a clogged oil pick up in the oil pan.

The oil pan reeds to be removed and the oil pickup needs to be cleaned out.

Its a little difficult to do this on A Passat with a 1.8 motor. It takes about 3-4 hours start to finish. You need an engine support device to raise the motor up about 3 inches so you have clearance to remove the oil pan.

You shouldn't drive he car until this is fixed. Running without oil pressure will seize the camshafts and cause serious damage $$$$$$ to the cylinder head.
