Thumbs up

Can anyone tell me where the oil pressure sending unit is located on an 01 Taurus SE? Anyone know of these failing or leaking?

Not sure about the newer vulcan's, but if you look on the rear of the driver side of the engine block, you should be able to see it. It will have a single wire running to it. unfortunately I don't have any other pictures other then this one.

Well it turns out that my oil pan gasket was leaking. If I remember correctly I had the same problem with the 97 I had too. Anyone else experience this?

My pan gasket is leaking pretty good. Unfortunately, the Y-pipe must come off to drop the pan. So, it's hard for me to get the motivation to do it without a lift.

I just had the oil pan gasket replaced on my '04...Fortunately for me it was still covered under the warranty.
