I have a 2002 Volkswagen Golf and lately it has began to start chugging when driving. It happened tonight and was worse than ever and then the oil light came on.

It's very difficult to assess such things from afar, but I wonder if the oil pressure was low already and the car has damaged one of its big-end bearings on the crankshaft. First thing to do is make sure there's sufficient oil in the engine and then get it along to a good mechanic right away.
