View Full Version : 2.8 Oil leak(pics)

Hey guys I apologize in advance for the picture sizes. I am currently hunting down an oil leak on my 2.8 12v coming from above the oil cooler/filter area. I was pretty sure that the oil pressure sender was the culprit after reading several other 12v's leaking from there, although, after looking closer I think I may be mistaken....

Here is a pic of the drip

Can somebody chime in as to why this hole looks like it should not be open....I feel like i'm missing something obvious here[confused]

Thank You

I think you need to keep looking up, that's the A/C compressor, not likely leaking oil unless your also losing your A/C charge too. In my case my a/c is dyed so there's green all over. I'd be suspecting valve cover or p/s lines. Oil pressure sender is much lower than that! Bolt hole not used, normal IMO.

Your leak is farther up.. you can see it on the bottom of some of the lines.

Your cam seal on that side could be leaking as well.
