You can try tightening the sensor but you'll likely need to replace it and the seal. Do the work soon, if the flow of oil leaking increases and the oil pressure gets too low you could find yourself needing a new engine.

Just changed the oil pan gasket in my 1996 ford windstar and its still leaking oil and there is oil all over the passenger side of my van ,where else can this leak be?


You have a front and rear main seal, if either of these are leaking the oil will be coming from the center of the engine above the oil pan. There are 2 1 in front and 1 in back of the engine.

Leaking oil while running from passenger side where could it be comming from?


Oil Filter, oil pressure sensor, front crankshaft seal, oil pan gasket there are a lot of things that could leak oil. depends on how fast it is coming out, Ive seen a lot of oil pan gaskets oil pressure sensors and even some oil filters not snugged up.

Oil leak passenger side 300 turbo sedan, some on front passenger side wheel. Never lost oil pressure, but dipstick showed very little oil in crankcase on immediate after-run check. Have not started...


Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..
