Anyone know what the thread size is for the oil pressure sending unit on the 2.8 30v AHA? I've got an oil light that comes on every now and again and my oil level is fine so I'm going to pick up an oil pressure tester and want to make sure it has the correct fittings to work. Hopefully it's just a bad sending unit and not something else.

UPDATE: Looks like it might be a M10x1 according to an article I found. Can anyone verify?

I can verify with ETKA. Do you know where the oil pressure sender is located more precisely on the 2.8

I'm unfamiliar with the engine.

The 058 block is 10mm non tapered

It's a 2.8. Not a 1.8. I can almost assure you it is M10X1.0 just can't be certain.

I agree with M10x1.0, should be the same for most VW/Audi applications.
