we have a 54 reg 2.5 TDi auto. I checked the oil etc this morning and then set off on 3.5 hour journey. All perfect until I came off the motoroway. Suddenly alarm 'oil pres' and STOP ENGINE came up.

Unable to stop where we were but went off in about a minute and didn't come back on. Checked oil, all fine.

Any ideas?

Sounds like an oil and filter change is in order to me mate.
When oil gets up to temp then engine revs drop after a considerable high constant it can sometimes cause this problem.
Just make sure you put the right oil in. Normally 5w 40 synthetic (if engine is high miles i personally like to up it to 10w 40T:

Thanks. Hmm, I just bought it about 3 weeks ago and it received a full service the day before (I was given the reciept). Only put a couple hundred miles on since.

Get it looked at on VAG COM. May have a fault code flash up to steer you in the right direction. Otherwise:* sorry mate.
