Try to knock the sensor a bit. gunk fouls the sensor so they stick. The sensor for the anti-freeze will do the same thing. Just some light tapping, don't whack it real hard or you might break it.

I took my 1997 Mitsubishi eclipse to walmart and they couldnt change my oil because oil was all under the car.. where could my leak be coming from

An oil leak, could be drastic or small and could come from ANY part of the engine where oil flows. If you haven't had a low oil pressure light before, it might be safe to assume it's a slow leak. Depending on how many miles you have, the oil leak could be coming from the oil pan gasket seal, the head gaskets/valve cover seals, or maybe the oil filter itself! Sometimes a technician could not tighten it all the way and this could cause a mess. Even if you have oil "under" the car, which is normal for any old worn out car, it shouldn't be a reason to NOT have a oil change done. I would suggest doing it yourself or taking it somewhere else.

Get the car cleaned underneath (in an environmental safe and responsible manner) and try to check daily for oil sweating and where it could come from.

Also check some Eclipse owner's forums online to see if this is a common issue with your 1997 model. Good luck

Would a blown head gasket cause oil to come out in weird places in my 1994 eclipse

the only way you can tell you blew a head gasket is if there is white smoke coming out of tail pipe or if there is anti freeze mixed with your motor oil ,check the dip stick if oil is creamy then you have a blown head gasket ,check your valve covers and hoses for leaks

You can do a compression test on each cylinder, if one or two cylinders are lower than the others, that could be a sign of a blown head gasket. Also, do a pressure test on the cooling system to see if the cooling system holds pressure. Check your oil for anti-freeze, and vise-versa. Any white foam around the oil cap? Or oil around the radiator cap?

Make sure when you changed the oil filter that the old gasket didn't stick to the block when you installed the new filter.

I have a 95 Eclipse and I recently had to change out my TCU........ Transmission Control Unit, This should be located directly beneath the center console. First I would have the transmission services if problem persist then proceed to changing out the TCU you can get off of ebay. As far as i know there should be 3 Computers in our cars. 1 the Electronic Control Unit located behind radio 2 Transmission Control Unit located under center console and 3 Airbag Control Unit located under hood, Hope this helps.
