Yes ,it can be the oil pressure sending unit, it's located on rear of the motor, just to the left of the distributor where it goes into the block, sometimes getting at them can be interesting, good luck

If it is leaking as steady as you say when the engine is running, it could be coming from several places you can check. Raise and block the vehicle good and steady enough to where you can slide under it with a good strong light. Check the oil drain plug, pan gasket, oil filter may have a hole in it from a rock flying up, the sending unit should be on the side of the block. It could be the rear main seal, but Its doubtful as you say its a steady stream when its running. You shouldn't have a problem finding it if its a steady leak, you will just have to look where its running down with the engine on. Keep me posted, and good luck.

OK, does it appear that the oil pressure sensor is leaking through the plastic to metal seam (on the sensor itself)?

Have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad and leak on a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that needed to be replaced.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION C1500 Suburban 1994
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the engine oil.
  2. Disconnect the sensor electrical lead and unscrew the sensor. The sensor can be found on the top side of the engine, near the distributor. To install:
  3. Coat the first two or three threads with sealer. Install the sensor and tighten until snug. Engage the electrical lead.
  4. Connect the battery cable and fill the engine with oil.

Get someone to check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, to verify whether you have oil pressure or not. These engine/vehicles, have 2 warning sensors & a control module in the instrument panel. Once you know you have pressure for sure, then you can proceed from there.

Yes,it will be safe to run as long as you keep the oil level up,but note how many miles it takes to leak a quart,it can get pretty costly to keep adding a quart everyday and may be more cost effective to just fix the leak.Hope this helps.

Oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry


I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.
