I have a 99 2.8 Quattro that sat for about a month because of a dead battery. I got a new battery for it drove it to the car wash and it drove fine. When I was driving it back it kept bogging down like it was choking and felt like it was going to die. Now it starts and then dies right away and I notice that the oil gauge does not move either. I checked the oil and there is plenty. Please help!!!

The oil gauge don't tell you how much is in there... Tells you how hot it is... It takes a while to show...
