I have a 98 ford escort and oil leaks from my oil


Replace the sending unit,, they go bad after a few years,, Plastic core cracks and it allows a leak in many sending units,
not to expensive,, $35 may want a mechanic to install it, you should tape the fitting with teflon tape or use a sealer ( to much is a bad thing) read up on the installation of the sending unit before attempting it ,, if you over tighten it wont make you happy,

I have a bad oil leak on my 1996 Plymouth Breeze. I was told it was the oil pressure sender and needed a special socket, and was located on the block below the exhaust manifold. I was sold the socket and...


ok i believe the one you changed is the switch the one next to it is the oil pressure sending unit
there is a difference between the two///// make sure they sell you thread tape so this way you don't have any leaks//// it doesn't take a lot of thread tape on the threads


hope this helps you
good luck

Whats the purpose of an oil pressure switch can it determine weather oil leaks from your grand prix or not?


The oil pressure switch or sending unit is a unit that receives an electrical signal showing what your cars oil pressure is.And yes it does partially does let you know when there is a problem somewhere in the oil system.For example if your filter gets clogged up your oil pressure will go down and then go up when you accelerate.If there was a leak in the system first you would probably see the leak And if the oil pump or oil pump shaft were to break you would have no oil pressure.So you can see the importance of having an oil pressure switch.I feel there are 2 guages that are important to watch are your oil guage and water temp guage they can tell you allot about how your car is operating.

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

1998 Malibu 2.4 Litre 4cyl. oil leak under exhaust manifold.Are there any sending units attached to the engine block?


Yes you have an oil pressure sending unit (switch) located under the manifold. They are known for going bad and leaking. Eventually it will prevent truck from running. When it stops sensing oil pressure due to the leak the vehicles fuel system will shut off. Its a saftey featur to keep you from blowing the motoe if a pump goes bad or you run outta oil
