1995 VW Passat Oil Pressure Sensor/Leak

How do you replace the oil pressure sensor on the 95 VW passat VR6? I have a leak on the left one on the passenger side. The sensors are directly above the oil filter conected to the filter housing. It looks pretty tight for any wrenches and was wondering how hard it might be to fix. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Arthor

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Oil Light comes on VW passat


Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

Adjust or replace the shiftlock sensor. It unlocks the shifting mechanism when you put your foot on the brake.

If there is an ignition problem, the tumbler will need replacement soon. This can be caused by an overloaded keychain. Best to do it now while it still is working, then have it fail and leave you stranded.
