after a bit of advice on this one. apparently the sensor itself is quite cheap, but it's an 1.5 hour job to fit it !(quote from the specialist i normally take it to). how easy are these to do yourself??

thanks,
hans

Think you will find that it`s mounted into the sump and probably fastened from inside so you`ll probably have to drop the sump off to change

Anybody correct me if i`m wrong............

anoying!! had 2 that do the same, considering i have only had 2..... thats 100%!!! my indicator light is battered from me keep tapping in in the hope that it will stop

Think i may leave mine as well.

When it first happened i pooed my self and kept chucking more oil in at services on a long trip (couldnt be bothered waiting for it to level and check properly) stopped and had an engine FULL of oil

oh the fun of Alfas eek!

I changed my oil sensor in about 5minutes 1.8TS/8v
The workplace is crap but you'll manage it, don't drop the seal if you turn the new sensor in.
remember the colours (write them down) of the wires.

As far as I can remember, the sensor is located in the back of the block just to the one side of the inlet manifold support. I changed mine while I had the Inlet Manifold off. :cool:

Remember to check your battery before the replacement. I had the same problem caused by a poor battery. After changing that I have not seen the lamps on.

Ehm, Daiblack, isn't that the oil pressure sender? I thought that the oil level sender lives down on the sump extension at the back of the engine...

Not the one I changed, the one on the sump extension is the oil temp sensor the oil level sensor is higher up on the sump while the oil pressure sensor is on the back of the block near the knock sensor. See picture below.

Right, I hadn't noticed the second one on the sump. :rolleyes: Oh the joys of having a proper workshop manual... Btw, did you have much fun taking off the inlet manifold? I know I did frown
