Section 2.9
Engine Oil Pressure/Temperature Sensor

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

Section 2.9.1
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 "Engine Oil Pressure/Sensor Installation or Removal" .

Section 2.9.2
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 kg·cm (72 lb·in).
  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 N·m (18 lb·ft).


    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.
