Tip & How-To about Ford F-150

How to Replace the Oil Pressure Sensor on a Ford F-150?

If there is oil in the car but if not getting detected or if there is a oil leak then its time to replace oil pressure sensor.
1) The oil pressure sensor is located under the hood on the driver side of the engine.
2) You will see oil pressure sensor next to the oil filter.
3) The oil pressure sensor is connected by a connector cable. Remove the connector cable and remove the sensor from the harness with your hands carefully.
4) The sensor is screwed in the engine blocks. Rotate the sensor screw anti clock wise to take it out.
5) Now before removing the old oil pressure sensor, please take note of the position in which it is placed. So while inserting new sensor there is no problem about placing the new sensor.
6) Insert the new sensor carefully and connect the connector cable to the proper position.
7) And reverse/refit all the wires / parts which you removed while replacing the old Oil pressure sensor.

This will help. Thanks

Error p0172 on a gti golf 2001. How do I solve it


Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1

A code P0172 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehiclesicon1.png where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak.
  • There could be a fuelicon1.png pressure or delivery problem
Possible Solutions
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Cleanthe MAF sensor. Consult your serviceicon1.png manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches
  • Check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail
  • Check the fuel injectorsicon1.png, they may be dirty. Use fuel injector cleaner or get them professionally cleaned/replaced.
  • Check for an exhaust leak before the first oxygen sensor (this is unlikely to cause the problem, but it is possible)

MY IMPALA 2007 LT IS LEAKING OIL GASKET WAS REPLACED TWO MONTHS BACK IT HAD BEEN FINE BUT JUST YESTERDAY OIL PRESSURE LOW SENSOR CAME ON & NOW I NOTICE IT'S HAVING A SLOW WATER DRIP PROBLEM AS


Yes or a small bypass hose. You may be able to get a loan of a tester at autozone, oreilys, or advance autoparts. You want a radiator pressure tester. Do not exceed the cap rated pressure. When the engine is warm, you can add pressure and look for water seepage.

There are also chemicals to add to detect leaks if the first method is unsuccessful.

fuel air metering p1131code


P1131-Lack of HO2S-21 Switch, Sensor Indicates Lean- Bank 1
A Heated Exhaust Oxygen (HO2S) sensor indicating lean at the end of a test is trying to correct for an over-rich condition. The test fails when the fuel control system no longer detects switching for a calibrated amount of time.
A code P1131 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Electrical:
  • Short to VPWR in the harness or HO2S
  • Water in the harness connector
  • Open/shorted HO2S circuit
  • Corrosion or poor mating terminals and wiring
  • Damaged HO2S
  • Damaged PCM
Fuel System:
  • Excessive fuel pressure
    Leaking/contaminated fuel injectors
    Leaking fuel pressure regulator
    Low fuel pressure or running out of fuel
    Vapor recovery system
Induction System:
  • Air leaks after the MAF
  • Vacuum Leaks
PCV system:
  • Improperly seated engine oil dipstick
EGR System:
  • Leaking gasket
  • Stuck EGR valve
  • Leaking diaphragm or EVR
Base Engine:
  • Oil overfill
  • Cam Timing
  • Cylinder compression
  • Exhaust leaks before or near the HO2S(s)
Hope this helps, let me know
