Leaking oil from a Pressure sensor
I have been leaking small but disturbing amounts of oil from what appears to be some kind of oil sensor on my 2.5L 2007 Outback.
I scoured the web at first and identified its as being an oil pressure switch, went to the local autoparts store, and got one that matched the online picture. When I got it home and held it next to the malfunctioning original, it was clear that they are not the same item.
I am reluctant to pull the original until I have a replacement as the car is still drivable, but by it was clear that the original had a square plastic harness on top for an electrical interface, the replacement has a square metal post.
