    Default 205 oil temp sensor availability

    Thought i might replace my oil temp sensor in the sump as it has a dodgy looking rod at the end like most of them get.
    From Peugeot they are big $$ it seems [if they still have them ] so i was wondering if there is any aftermarket tricks/supply for these items ??

    Mine lost its terminal flush with the case, so I exposed a bit more of it by dremeling away a bit of the plastic around and soldered a pigtail. I rebuilt the end with silicone over the join and seven years later it still works very well.

    I used a quality tinned silicone wire to make sure it doesn't break off or corrode.

    Cheers for that. I will go that way as well pending if they are available aftermarket or similar. Mine is also leaking though :{

    There were x2 different thread diameters with these senders also so make sure you measure it (which means unfortunately dropping oil.) I took a punt when I was in the UK a few years back and bought one (based on VIN)... turned out it was the wrong one. I got the correct one a couple of years after on another trip. That was direct from a Peugeot dealer.

    You mean through the sender?!

    That would be surprising because the temp sender is not open on the inside so to speak because it doesn't need to be.

    The heat transfer takes place through the brass casing.

    If it does leak through for some reason, I would try to solder it. Might not be a permanent fix, but you never know. I would be worried of the temperatures reached in normal service, which are dangerously close to the meting temperature of solder (and the cycling itself can't help either). But like I said, you never know until you try.

    I would first make sure the leak is not due to the copper washer being verschnickered.
