Thank you!
This is not a 1970... It is a early series III...1971 model. you got a rare car only a few of the 6-Cylinders Series III were made until the V-12 replaced the 6- Cylinders
Besides wishing to have smaller hands I did it just like you said even the swearing part. Nice video and it did help Thanks.
4:15. Damn engineers. I cuss them out about every time I work on a vehicle
Great video! Helped a lot thanks
I thought brake cleaner melts plastic? Oh and I'm definitely gonna check to see if that's where my baby is leaking, thanks!
just a find... i have a sierra 1500 with fluctuating between 0 an around 40 psi. changed sending unit.. ng. changed filter screen under unit still ng. found the problem to be a stuck bypass on the oil filter under the truck. it was a bosch filter and ill not use them again. changed oil and filter... no more problems.
Same problem on my car with that gauge...worked fine for about 3 months.
i was able to do this with a standard ratchet and without removing any lines. i used a ratchet. short extension, wobble and obviously a inch and 16 socket. but i just cleaned the filter and slaped it all back together and i still got the same problem, so i also recommend to get a new filter and sensor.
Can a spart plug socket work?
Oil pump has nothing do with oil pressure? Makes sense
Oh wow, thanks, I think I can do this! 2003 suburban
I just changed the oil pressure switch on an '05 Mazda Tribute thanks to this video. I detached the A compressor as indicated and obtained easy access to the switch which was leaking and causing the low oil pressure light to flicker at stop lights. Only correction I can make to video is the bolt on the switch takes a 21mm deep well socket, not a 22mm. Thanks CarMan!!
Bro I had to find your update video on how to take the electrical cap off the sensor but it was a success. You are the man brother! Saved me $350 maybe more ❤️
Yes it is i just did this today.Its located next to oil filter
Where else could it leak that badly from?? Mine is as bad if not worse. And i can hear it leaking with the hood down now that the oil is gone (dont plan on starting it again till it has at least a qt lol)
Well done sir. But still looks like a pain on my back
Thanks for the post!  Saved me money and took 20 minutes to swap out!
When checking wire have a solid light on the tester any idea? Also it’s a 1988 7.5
where can u sit when u get in the engine and do u need to remove any plastic
it could be that you may have a faulty ground...or maybe you need a resistor?
Thanks good luck Erick
So has anyone found out what the real problem is. I’m replacing the sensor tomorrow
