The sending unit are not normally hard to replace but you will want to get an oil pressure sending unit socket, i would recommend buying the new sender and getting the socket at the same time to ensure good fit, sometimes the sockets can be a little short for the application. in any case the clutch fluid would have to be bleed out at the slave cylinder (as long as it is a hydraulic clutch) by opening the bleeder screw. careful with those though they sometimes require heating and cooling with a torch to remove without damage. hope this will help you.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE YELLOW SYMBOL OIL PRESSURE WITH AN EXCLAMATION MARK


If you have a yellow oil pressure warning light displaying then you may have 2 problems
1. Your oil level is way too low and needs topping up which very often means you are a sloppy owner that does not bother to regularly check the oil level in the engine and probably the other fluids as well.

2. There is a problem with the oil pressure and it is below the minimum needed to lubricate the engine.

What you need to do:

1. Check the oil level and top it up to the max level with the correct grade and type of oil as specified by Toyota for that engine.
Do not overfill the sump.
2. Check to see if the oil pressure warning is continuing to display when the sump has been filled to the correct level. If you still have the oil pressure warning you need to have it investigated and the cause of the low pressure rectified otherwise you will destroy your engine if you continue to run it with less than minimum pressure. A mechanic needs in the first place to connect an independent oil pressure gauge to the engine to check the actual pressure readings. This will also eliminate any possibility that there is an issue with the oil pressure sensor and sender unit (which is not likely). .

Where is the oil pressure sensor on a 1995 Chevy Truck? V-8, 5.7 L. I have the new one, just can't find the one I need to replace.


If you go to a parts store, I prefer CARQUEST, they will gladly print up a schematic or just show you where it is if that is all you need.

I have a 96 dodge Dakota 2.4 L , 4 cylinder. I installed 3 oil sensor switches, thinking they could be bad. I have no reading on oil gage in cab. I grounded lead to sensor, gage working. On the other


Try using a cheap mechanical oil gauge to make sure you do have oil pressure. If you do, something is preventing the senders from making ground to the engine. Are you using tape or sealer on sender threads? DON"T. the threads are the ground for the sender.

High idle and no reading on temp gauge


check that there is coolant or fluid in the radiator as a coolant temp sender cannot read air as it is a vital part of the injection system for the ecu to know if the engine is cold and if sender relays no reading it is telling the ecu that it needs to ritchen the fuel mixture (possibally the reason for the fast idle) to get the engine up to normal operating temp as soon as possible.it you live in a really cold climate a thermostat that is jamed in the open position will cause it a long time to reach a warm reading. hopefully it is just the sensor wire off the coolant temp sender and by replacing it will return ever thing to normal

GAS GAUGE STUCK ON FULL


well its not connected>? or you forgot to ground the ground wire?
if you had a DMM meter , this would be easy,
you can measure the sensor ohms, at any time with tank in car.
and id have never put back any tank with out checking it first.
not me, pulling tanks is no fun.
and empty tank the gauge sender is at max ohms, (lever down)
so is about 100 ohms and 10 ohms full (ball park) RTM
read the FSM read alldata.com
heck the FSM has a flow chart for these tests. amazing huh?
i dont use it, i use my meter and ohms law.
ill now look online at alldata.
the only think complex is which of 2 systems it is,
in the late 90s most cars changed. to indirect way.
ok , i looked, your car is direct way, (cave man)
its just 2 parts, a gauge and a sender. (sure wires)
the sender is grounded at G751
if the dash temp guage works , then the fuse is not blown , fuse 1.

the tests are cave man simple , all FSM show this.

1: unplug the Yellow/Blue sender wire, at any point
from front (gauge) to sender, any place, there are many.(4 junctions)
now, on the upstream side, key on, and ground this pin for 1min
max, if guage moves pull the ground. (i use $#194 lamp for tests )
i connect my lamp to ground and the other side to the guage,wire.
then key on and see guage move. bingo gauge is 100% good.
cave man easy. (

now the sender.
i measure the ohm.
DMM on 200 ohm scale if manual meter.
i connect black meter to body ground (shiny steel not plastic)
i connect red lead to down stream wire above..Yellow/Blue
it must read 100 ohms empty
not 0 ohms.
not infinity.
if read infinity? the wire is cut, or gound it open or the sender is bad.
if reads 0, the wire is grounded to the body or the the sender is bad (shorted)
do not take my facts on ohms as verbatim,
read the FSM and get the facts.

but i think your tank sender wire is shorted to ground.
some gauges work backwards, and my poor online version
dont cover this. well.
unplug the sensor does guage go full or empty?
most go empty, but not all.
use the lamp to test the gage, get to swing both ways
with lamp to ground and with lamp and wire disconnected.
cheers.

Can u bypass a oil sending unit


The engine oil pressure is very important without pressure internal damage will happen. The pressure sender is grounding style sender a open circuit will read max pressure on gauge and a grounded sender reads zero. unplugging it does no harm to system EXCEPT you have no indication of engine damage without it working.

Knocking noise on my 2001 grand cherokee caused by overheaing


check your transmission level fluid and engine oil level. might be leaking and need some refill. make sure that your thermostat is working or maybe not, check your fan if it is spinning in the right time which your coolant temperature sender sense a very high temperature. or get the lowest temp sender sensor rating.

Engine runs fine oil checks out good yet oil light comes on?


You need to verify that oil pressure is ok.
They sell gauge at the parts store which has to be connected to the engine block via oil pressure sender hole.
For that , take out oil pressure sender(unscrew) and screw the gauge in to the hole (con thread).Run the engine and see if pressure is ok at idle and on higher RPM.Gauge suppose to have scale (norm. , low , high ).If oil pressure within specs , repl. oil pressure sender.
Or just replace oil pressure sender and see if that helps.They are not expensive ~ $30.00 , gauge probably the same money.

hi, i'm pretty sure that you do have a combo brake/clutch system on the same reservoir. sounds like the brake fluid is low, when you take turns and the brake light goes on, that usually means low fluid sloshing away from internal reservoir sensor. audi and vw take DOT 4 brake fluid only, not DOT 3. You should fill to max level on the brake reservoir(located in front of the drivers seat/steering wheel in the engine compartment) and yes, take it to a professional shop, there maybe other problems in the brake/clutch system in need of inspection. hope i could help.

The fluid used in the hydraulic clutch line is brake fluid.
The fluid used in the transmission can be either 10w30 oil......80w90 oil or automatic trans oil ....it depends on what transmission you have and what year you have.

Some transmissions are filled through the shifter opening.
Do not overfill it.....it will leak out on your new clutch.
