Oil Pressure Sender DIY
I googled this work and those pro’s used a lift for this and were able to stand up and reach in which doesn’t work so good when I laid under the car. So I used a different approach while standing with the hood open.
First I got the filter assembly and battery out of my way. Then I loosened/removed the 2 bolts holding the fuse blocker block and wedged it out down and out of my way.
Peeking behind the engine, you can see the connector which has a red lock tab that has to be pushed into the connector only then can the thumb tab can be levered and the connector pulled directly rearward.
I had to use a flex-joint on the 27mm socket to allow me to get my shorty ratchet in place which meant it was harder to get the sensor loose. I wrapped the new sensor with 1 wrap of thread tape and reversed the above. Remembering to flick the red lock tab back on the connector after it snaps into position.
Since my battery was pulled, my #0522 Check Engine Light (CEL) no longer was registered in the fault memory of the engine’s computer.
I have some pictures of this work, feel free to contact me if you need visual re-enforcement.
