Just started stripping my engine on the engine stand and cleaning it up ready for paint, when i got a bit carried away and i caught a sensor. It is on the front of the block more towards the right than left and is about half way down. It has a little rubber boot over 2 soldered probes and i managed to snap.one of the soldered joints. Will be able to repair or if not fit the one from.my engine that is currently fitted, but was wondering what sensor it is? It has a dark green plug on it 2 pins?

Sounds like oil level sensor but been a while since I've seen one to be honest

Although common sense would would make you think 5 and 8 would be the other way round purely on location?

The oil level sender is like a long tube that goes down into the sump so it detects the oil level.

Number 4 was just a blanking plug on both my gti6 engines iirc, although on the track car i've used an aftermarket oil pressure sensor in that position so i can see the pressure on the dash.

Number 7 the oil pressure sensor. Can I branch off that for a oil pressure gauge?

Do you happen to have a guide / some pictures on what to do? Would be good to have an oil pressure sensor in the race car.

Dan I fitted one of these with the low pressure switch in the end and the sender for the pressure gauge in the side. You can buy just the adapter to fit the low pressure switch and sender straight into the block but I found I couldn't get enough room to fit the sender in the side due to the angle of the adapter when it was tightened up, il get a picture of the setup tomorrow if I can!
