Question about 1998 Buick LeSabre
I recently had the oil gauge sending unit replaced on my 1998 LeSabre. It was leaking. With the new sending unit, the gauge barely moves above or below the center. Is it a faulty sending unit?
It's not uncommon for a new part to be defective. While the car is running it should be in the middle. If you have the ignition on without the motor running it should be at zero. If it isn't, you definitely have a problem. There is a solder joint that in the guage cluster that will losen up over time causing incorrect readings on the gauges. Also check out the wiring going to the sensor for frays. This can ground out the sensor giving inaccurate readings.
