The Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor is located at the base of the oil filter, mounted near the right front side of the engine. ‪

Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor Removal

Remove the Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor as follows: ‪

  1. Loosen the oil filter cap. Lift up the cap and filter to allow the oil to drain. Inspect the O-ring for damage and replace if necessary.
  2. Disconnect the wiring connector from the Engine oil pressure/temperature sensor. See Figure 42450 .

  3. Remove the fasteners securing the Engine oil pressure/temperature sensor, and remove the sensor.

Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor Installation

Install the Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor as follows: ‪

  1. Position the Engine oil pressure/temperature sensor and install the mounting fasteners. Tighten the fasteners 81 kgcm (72 lbin).
  2. Connect the wiring harness at the engine oil temperature/pressure sensor.
  3. Using a new O-ring (if necessary), install the oil filter cap. Tighten the cap 25 Nm (18 lbft).


    To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.


    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  4. Start the engine. Check the gauge for the correct oil pressure; check the lubrication system for leaks.
  5. Check and add engine oil as needed.
