Hi,

It sounds like you need to fit a dowty seal washer to it. I would say the original was a taper fit and somehow it has become a parralle thread switch now. So fit a dowty seal and this will fix your problem.

Or if it is a taper thread then use some Loctite thread sealent that will work also.

Thanks

Jason

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

In my 2005 chrysler 300 the oillight keeps beeping and blinking,any ideas of whats going on?


The problem may be a leaking oil pressure sending unit. If the sender leaks it can fill the plug cavity with oil and cauce it to read improperly.If you decide to replace it get one from chrysler,I have gotten them in the aftermarket only to have the same concern.Once I installed one from dealer problem gone. ALSO . you may want to hook up an mechanical oil press gauge to pressure switch port to see what the pressure actually is to be sure you do not have low oil pressure.

Engine oil leaking near sending unit. Replaced unit and oil still leaks. What could be the cause?


Look up overhead above the sending unit for any oil that maybe dripping from above,makeing you think it's the sending unit leaking. If not then you may use a little thread sealer to seal the leak. Also check to see if the sending unit is loose and the threads may not be the same as the old unit you removed (metric/standard/pipe) Hope this will help you.

Oil leak only when van is running and appears above the starter . Down 3 liters in 1 1/2 days.


It common for the oil to leak there when your oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. It's a simple fix, locate the oil pressure sending unit (between the starter and oil filter are) and replace. Auto Zone will have the part you need and step by step instructions to get the job done, Napa, and Part Source will have the part also. Do not use Teflon tape when installing the new oil pressure sending unit, the end is tapered and it needs a good ground to the engine block to work properly.

Good luck and this should take you around 20 min to replace once your start when the engine has cooled off to work on.

At this point I would strongly suggest that you have your mechanic hook a mechanical oil pressure guage to the engine and make absolutlely sure that the pressure is up to manufacturers standards. It may simply be a failing oil pressure sending unit, but, until you know, it could turn out a lot more expensive! Thank you, Dana

The oil pressure sending unit screws into the engine block so you will need to look between the oil pan and the head.I suggest that you try tightening your oil filter first.

2002 Pontiac oil gauge read full pressure at all


The oil sending unit has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The sensor is under the exhaust manifold and above the oil filter on the V6. Replace the oil pressure sending unit, once they fail they may start to leak oil soon. Good luck and keep me posted.
