    Default CX25 oil leak

    evening all
    I have had the upper torque bar engine mount replaced recently and now have an oil leak that seems to originate below the engine mount.
    What could have been disturbed to cause the leak. It appears to have lost about two liters in the last two weeks.
    For the last two years the engine has been dry.

    I hope you don't take this the wrong way ....

    BUT CHECK THE OIL PRESSURE SWITCH IMMEDIATLY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They leak, when they get bad the oil pressure flicker at idle. They can blow the center out of the sender dumping your whole sump on the road in seconds

    Um, where was I .... Oh yeah, check the oil pressure sender

    Here's a piccie of back there if it helps, the wire pointing downhill is the oil pressure switch.



    seeya,

    PS: there's not much else down there unless the oil filter or oil filter housing is leaking.
