We performed exactly the same repair on December 28, 2010 withexactly the same outcome. Finding no other references to this oil pressureproblem anywhere on the internet and the fact that they both happened the samemonth, I can only wonder if there are some incorrectly made gaskets hitting theshelves.

    Make sure you used the correct gasket. There is one for use with an oil cooler

    How do you know if you have an Oil cooler?

    Usually there are two pipes from the adapter to the radiator (like the trans lines but bigger).
    Just to be sure, I bought both gaskets and matched them up with the one I removed. I returned the unopened one. Make sure you connect the wire to the oil pressure switch/sender that is attached to the adapter.

I have a 2000 Grand Marquis, with 62,000 miles. The oil light turned on. The car is not low on oil. Is it ok to drive it to my dealer


I WOULD SAY NO ONLY BECAUSE IT MAY INDICATE LOW OIL PRESSURE LIKE INTERNAL OIL PUMP THAT MAY HAVE GONE BAD,OR IT COULD BE A FAULTY SENDING UNIT, WHICH IS A CHEAP FIX.BUT EITHER WAY ITS BETTER TO BE SAFE THEN SORRY. 3K FOR A NEW MOTOR INSTALLED.

Oil leak above the oil filter no one can point the like


Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

Turned on 2009 altima was flashing oil pressure then oil fillter flashing warning had oil and filter changed 3 days ago ck oil it was fine turned off car what may be the problrm


sometimes the service technician fails to remove the old oil filter gasket. This causes a leak at the oil filter. This would cause a leak which would lead to low oil pressure and loss of oil. You would have to remove the oil filter and check for an extra gasket. Or perhaps the oil filter was never tightened. If you find one then just remove it and re-install oil filter. You will, however, leak a couple cups of oil so have a drip pan ready. You may have damaged your engine if you ran with no/low oil pressure for any length of time.

The v8 engine in my 1992 mercury grand marquis has a leak somewhere by oil filter area and I'm trying to find the name of a gasket that needs to be replaced in order to fix that leak.


might be the oil filter adapter (the stud that the filter threads onto). I would try replacing filter first twist on till tight then use filter wrench to tighten 1/4 to 1/2 turn more

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.
