No more than a few tablespoons anyway. Are you saying the sensor was replaced, and the people who replaced it charged you for oil, and said they had to, because it leaked out when they replaced the sensor?

Depends if the sensor is leaking. If the oil is pressurized, it can come out fast.

The only time the sensor would be pressurized is while the car is running and about 2 seconds after that. That would have been very noticeable if it was leaking while it was running.
