How to replace oil pressure sensor?

Maintenance of the component consists in its removal and body surface cleaning. Space near the mounting hole of the sensor must be cleaned especially thoroughly. Remember that the sensor is a quite fragile part, that is why you need to use only soft dry cloth for its cleaning.

If diagnostics shows defectiveness of the sensor, it should be replaced, as it is a solid part and not subject to repair. Replacement procedure is quite simple, and if you got specific knowledge you can easily perform it on your own. Mounting location of the sensor in various cars can be different, that is why you need to familiarize with car technical documentation before performing works. Generally, the algorithm of oil pressure sensor replacement is following:

  1. Wait till the engine cools down. Otherwise there is a risk to get injured from hot oil spillage.
  2. Open the bonnet, remove the negative terminal from the battery.
  3. Disconnect wire coming to the dashboard from the sensor.
  4. Carefully unscrew the sensor thread using a wrench.
  5. Demount the defective component.
  6. Inspect the seal ring visually. If it is burnt, thinned or deformed, replace it as well.
  7. Install a new spare part and perform unit assembling in the reverse order.

If you don’t have experience of such works, it is recommended to apply to a service station for replacement of the part.
