View Full Version : Oil coming from the crank sensor?

08-25-2011, 04:00 PM
Car is in the sig. The crank sensor was replaced a few months ago and now it kinda looks oil soaked or oil is coming from it. Is this normal or does something need to be fixed? Is it complicated?

Simple o ring seals it. I would replace it.

Part number or links or anything ? How hard is it to do?

One bolt, pull the sensor out, swap o rings, reinstall.

Is there a way or place to get the o ring before i take it out. I've read you have to go to the dealer, i hate our dealer... he's a prick. Where would you get it from?

Bump 2 things...
1. Is this the right replacement. I'll be so happy.

2. Sooo should i do my oil change before replacing the o-ring. Or even with it off will it just slowly seep? Does it pop in & out no problems?

That oring looks right if the picture is accurate. Oil will not leak out because it is above the oil level line....and yes it comes right in/out.
