    Default Engine sensor leaking oil

    I'm hoping someone can help me identify this sensor.


    Well right after I replaced my oil cooler lines I noticed another leak (puddle) -another WTF moment.

    After swearing and cussing (for a moment I thought my engine block was cracked or something) - I then calmed down and started looking closer.

    As it turns out I came across a sensor located (when you are standing on the passenger side looking over the engine) below and to the left of the oil filter. This damn thing was shooting out a nice stream of oil at a pretty good rate.

    I'll assume this is a oil pressure sensor of some kind. Does anyone know the part number and where I can get this thing?

    Thanks

    No the black thing below the radiator pipe to the left of the oil filter.

    Ok thanks for the info. That thing seems impossible to get to - I don't see how I'm going to get it out. I wonder if anyone out there has some tricks to install it.

    The technician at my Chevy dealer replaced mine last year and advised it was a real pain to get to, but he eventually got it done. Good luck!
