Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome to JustAnswer, I'm here to help get your problem resolved. Please feel free to ask follow up questions, it is part of the process.
The location is in this diagram. As far as checking the oil pressure, you will need a test kit with a hose, gauge and adapter and maybe extra fittings for that application. I would try replacing the sensor first.
From inside will be nessasary. You will need a special socket that you can get from the parts store. They might even loan you one. And a little teflon tape and that is it. This is what it looks like.
you still did not provide me a part number or an accurate description of what the specvial socket looks like. I am not going to give you a negative feedback but I also would like complete information....I paiud the top end price for detailed info on what it is that I need and how do I do it.
Also, how would I have measured the pressure without having that special socket??? You should have included that in the first email along with the part numbers and an accurate description of the socket. If you cannot assist me then please pass it on to someone who can; I am running out of time.
The parts store will direct you to the correct socket and you will have the new one in hand to confirm it is correct. It is just a simple sensor socket.
I mentioned that in the former response.
Sorry if I provided the info in a poor format.
I promise if you just give me the part number for the sensor I will accept and we'll be done. Again, it is a Workhorse Votec 8.1L gasoline engine.
I'm sorry I left that out, the Duralast part number is PS631
There we go.....thank you so very much for the help. I have a bundle invested in a vacation weekend and this has brought everything to a stand-still until I get this fixed.
