oil leak

Recommended Posts

well i too have an oil leak in my 2004 monsoon but i think i know where it is coming from, there is a sensor just above the oil filter and i think the oil is coming from there and the sensor has a threaded plug that goes in the block so what do you guys think, can i fix this myself, i have no dealer close

That should be a tee fitting with the oil pressure sender (larger) and oil pressure switch threaded into it.. You can undo it all and reinstall with teflon tape or you can just try tightening everything, but you will have to remove the two senders to tighten the tee. Do NOT overtighten any of the parts as they all have a very fine 1/8-27 pipe thread, which can strip easily. A tad more than hand tight should do it,especially if you use the tape.
