Changing the Oil Pressure Sensor
Do you have an oil leak that looks like the whole oil pan is leaking?
The oil pressure sensor is a part that tends to fail and will leak oil all down the back of the engine. It is impossible to see from below as it sits right behind the starter.
You can catch a glimpse of the sensor by looking from above, below the intake manifold. The process to replace the sensor is straight forward and has to be done from below the car.
This does require a few tools that the avg DIY mechanic may not have so be prepared to buy some new tools for this job.
You will need a 24mm socket to remove the original old sensor. If this has been replaced already it will be 22mm.
You will need a 7/8" or 22mm O2 sensor socket. The kind with a notch in the side.
Other than this you just need good hands and the regular tools.
