SOURCE: how do you locate the oil pressure switch on a 1.7

you will see a brass "nut" on the engine block near the oil filter, with a wire attached to it and yes, you can get a leak from it, it's a common fault on most engines.

My Nissan terrano mix water and oil in the engine


This is almost certainly due to a blown head gasket, which will have to be replaced. Oil and water systems will need to be flushed and refilled with clean oil and coolant

Brown sludge on oil cap and a bit in oil tank


that is water in the oil. could be old oil or gasket on head has gone check to see if there is a oily residue in the water container. if not do an oil change and check the torque on the head bolts and re tighten them. there is some stuff you can buy that repairs seal in the engine. something like stop leak. don't use thin oil. engine is old now and well warn in, 30/50 or 20/40 will do fine. but dont use 10 or 15. oil as it is to thin

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel


oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.

2003 ford f350 6.0 diesel


The 6.0l diesel is noted for having oil and fuel enter the coolant system. If it is oil then the oil cooler has failed. The oil cooler is located the the center of the engine under the intake.On an F-series truck the oil cooler is below the oil filter housing. It can be identified by two things. The low oil pressure sensor and a small blue or orange hose is connected to the cooler. If it is fuel in the coolant then you have a cracked head or cracked injector sleeve.
