    Default Oil pressure sensor leaking oil

    I think it is the oil pressure sensor, (under the inlet manifold - the left sensor) that is only done up finger tight and is sending a trickle of oil down the block...

    Is it ok just to do it up tight, or does it need a seal? And what size spanner would be needed? (I don't have one big enough...)

    It should be a tapered "gas" thread and usually a 21mm spark plug spanner fits. Just tighten it.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    I just got a new copper washer from Pug and tightened it up gently with an adjustable spanner.
