Can oil pressure sender cause a major oil leak if sender is bad

Hi Jerell:
Short answer - YES
Fortunately, it is usually easy to find the source of oil leaks. clean it up, run it for a short time, look for the fresh oil leak.

Lots of older vehicles had a vinyl tube that went from the engine block to an oil pressure guage. A hole in the tube or a bad fitting connection would cause the loss of a large amount of oil.

Electronic senders could still be the source location for an oil leak if the internals had failed. Not common, but possible.

Can the Oil Pressure Switch on a Kia Sorrento cause an oil leak?

Do you mean filler cap or the oil filter? An improperly seated O-ring on an oil filter is a common source of oil leaks, but these leaks are usually major and noticeable as soon as the engine is started. An oil pressure switch can also be a source of leaks, but a much slower leak. A leak from an oil filler cap would be slower still.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine

Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    What would be a cause of leaking transmission fluid?

    The most common cause is the front seal of the input shaft is leaking, this is commonly called the front pump seal, next would be the transmission pan gasket is leaking. The only real way to determine exactly what is leaking is to thoroughly clean all the fluid off with a pressure washer, then drive it and check for the source of the fluid.

    The antifreeze puddle? the is no water coming out of the water pump is there any more solutions?

    Other possible sources for the anti-freeze are:
    • leaking radiator hose - concentrate on the area where the clamps are, they commonly fray and leak.
    • check radiator for leaks - common places on the radiator that leak are on the weld seams and the petcock
    • area around the thermostat - if the thermostat is plugged, it could be forcing anti-freeze backward and compromise the seal you have around the thermostat

    Brake fluding leaking on rear passenger

    Most brake fluid leaks, especially from vehicles of this age are caused from rusted through lines. Take a look under the car and look at the line on the axle, you will likely find a wet spot. If you can't locate the leak easily, fill the brake reservior and have someone pump the brakes to find the source. Another common source of leaks are wheel cylinders. If this is the case you will notice brake fluid on the bottom of the drum backing plate. You can remove the brake drums to confirm this.
