I put 2 more gallons of oil and and still doing it, maybe some oil sensor is dirty or loose, but i dont know where they are located to look because underneath is very grease and dusty

Hello, i assume this is a d12 and the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine beside the computer in front of the plug. Some have two sensor in that location, the top one is oil pressure and the bottom one is crankcase pressure. Now its very possible that the sensor is bad, you should check the pressure manually but i doubt you can do that there. Suggestion would be take the fuel pressure sensor out of the filter housing and exchange for the oil pressure, just swap them. see if that helps until you can get the right sensor and i do believe the threads are the same.

The sensors you are telling me are above the big fuel filter in the left side

I want to see how the oil sensor look like

This is what I could find on a D12 motor. I work on the construction side for Volvo not the road trucks. But the locations should be similar. Hopefully it will help you locate the sensor. Thanks.
