Searched for: I have a 98 s10 with a 2.2 motor that has a bad oil leak on the passenger side of the motor. Looks like its coming from a censor not far from the coil packs. can you tell me what that censor is or if its not coming from there then where would it be leaking from in that area?

Asked by Nov 04, 2017 at 02:25 AM about the 1998 Chevrolet S-10 LS Extended Cab RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The oil is pouring bout in that area but I can't tell for sure where it's leaking.

Might be the oil pressure sender unit, right next to the distributor if I recall. Image below shows where sending unit plugs in, the hole above it in the image is where the distributor would be.

Thank you Ken F, that tells me that I was right when I saw the oil leaking from that area. That gives a place to start. Thank You again.
