Remove the one nut holding the cables on and clean everything up nice and pretty.
hah, yeah i know where it is OSG, I've been under the hood once or twice, plus, I have exclusive knowlege of that because I had to remove it to upgrade my coil packs! At the time it was not dirty, but I still took a file and cleaned it up and tightened it good. That is definitely not it.
As for sender...
Ok, it is right above the port for the oil filter? ok. I will have a look see. You say you had to remove the passenger tire and wheel well protection to get to it? Sounds fun.
I'm not super concerned, because I check my oil all the time and I always change it at the interval, but there is always the off chance that something could start leaking...so eh. If i can find a warm place to work then I will do it.
Thanks for the part number, I will probably go get the sensor/sender soon.
And andrew..lol, Thats just me! commentating on everything imaginable! Even if i did sound dumb
