Question about 1999 Ford Super Duty F 450
Oil is leaking from the thread of the sensor on 6cyl falcon. Can it be repaired by applying a suitable thread sealant.
Possibly,the sealant used should be the white teflon that comes in tape form or as a liquid in a small squeeze bottle.The liquid form,you would want the threads free of oil,the teflon tape,oil present doesn't matter,although the tape should be applied to the threads in the opposite direction of the threads.The threads would screw into the block clockwise,so apply the tape from the counter clockwise direction.It is also possible that the sending unit itself has a small crack somewhere,and these sending units aren't all that expensive,so i would install a new unit while using the teflon.
