I have a 1985 Crown Victoria

Asked by Apr 06, 2016 at 02:15 PM about the 1985 Ford LTD Crown Victoria 2 Dr Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my 1985 Crown Victoria oil is leaking but it's
not coming from the oil pan it is coming from
something that plugs in right above the oil filter I
don't know what it's called but it's leaking pretty
bad when I start the car and I need to know can I
put it tighter or do I get a new one

Oil pressure sender. Cheap part, just replace. Wipe area off of oil and grime so you don't get any in threads. Pull wire off of end gently, use open ended wrench to unscrew component. If new component has thread sealant already on threads simply thread by hand until finger tight then seat firmly with wrench. If no sealant already just use three wraps of teflon tape. Reattach wire, start car, check for leaks.
