When you have no dipstick tube you can incorrectly check youroil level. ... How you check your oil level ...Missing: inches ltr
if to much oil in vehicle --not on level ground --engine running while checking oil -or not swiping stick clean before reading it these are reasons for high reading on dip stick oil pressure sensor/switch only measures the pressure of the oil
well you have a dip stick like ware you put the oil in but do not put the transmission fluid in the oil dip stick ! it would be best to go and put a new filter in the transmission ! hope the transmission came with the dip stick ! you may have to get the one off the old one !
The dip stick end should have a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full. A level reading anywhere between the two bulbs is adequate but not optimal. Oil below the top end of the bottom bulb, means 1 quart low, and no oil at all on the bottom bulb means get some oil in there double quick.
The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs.
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace.
They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces.
The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels.
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.
