oil pressure sending unit leak?

Recommended Posts

anyone ever had a leak from the oil pressure sending unit and/or replaced one? there is a good amount of caked on oil crud on my passenger cylinder bank (4-6 i think?) and i can trace it to the top of the bank, forward most. it's def caked on the post leading up to the sending unit but since that post isn't very high, i'm not 100% sure it's the culprit as it could very well be coming from the top of the bank and simply hitting the post as it blows back. so is there any chance it's leaking from the bank top side? i'm HOPING it's just the sending unit/gasket.i have 50k miles, a lot of track days and pressure seems like it's reading fine, btw. i already have the shop manual/DIY so am just looking for thoughts or advice. thanks all!

In most cases it is just a leaking sending unit. Happens fairly often - I think there is an updated sender.

oh man, you have no idea how happy i am to hear that. i know i know, it's not 100% but it's def peace of mind when someone else confirms a "possibility"! thanks loren!
