    I have a slight problem on my '87  Audi 4000S .
    The "oil warning" light occasionally  comes on for short intervals.
    It beeps sharply.
    It does not happen today on the cold eigine.
    An older and seemingly experienced gent on the gas station said
    my oil level and color was OK.
    Listening to the engine he said he did not believe there was a
    trouble with my  oil pump.
    His guess was that sending unit was messed up.
    What do people think out there:
    what are the tokens of major troubles with the oil system ?
    How do I locate the sending unit and check it ? etc.
