Can oil pressure sender cause a major oil leak if sender is bad


Hi Jerell:
Short answer - YES
Fortunately, it is usually easy to find the source of oil leaks. clean it up, run it for a short time, look for the fresh oil leak.

Lots of older vehicles had a vinyl tube that went from the engine block to an oil pressure guage. A hole in the tube or a bad fitting connection would cause the loss of a large amount of oil.

Electronic senders could still be the source location for an oil leak if the internals had failed. Not common, but possible.

After getting an oil change, two weeks later my 1998 Chevy Malibu makes a lots of noise and cuts off, what is the problem.


Have you checked the oil? Sometimes the shops don't get the drain plug in tight and the oil leaks out. Or the oil filter is not put on tight and leaks all of the oil out. I would check the oil. Walmart did it to my mothers car once. They replaced the motor, but that is what happen.

My car is leaking oil out of nowhere is a slow steady small stream only while running it is a 2003 mitsubishi lancer


Could be your front crankshaft seal or your oil sending unit, these two are the most likely.But have it check out, low oil will do some major engine damage.

Oil leak around the oil filter bracket. Its a steady stream of oil


Hello...

Sounds like the gasket was left on after the old oil filter from the previous oil change and now 2 are on it. Try giving it a look..

Good Luck...
