Default Remote oil pressure sensor 2010 5.3l




Disconnect plug from oil pressure sensor, remove tape from wire harness and separate the oil pressure sensor plug wiring.





After separating the oil pressure sensor wires rewrap both sets of wires with electric tape.





Remove oil pressure sensor using the recommended oil sensor socket and install adapter. I used (RUS-670530) Metric adapter -6AN male x 16mm male. Purchased through Summit Racing. <br/><br/>Note: The fitting going into the oil sensor port is wrapped in pipe thread tape





I got 2 ft of rubber hose from O'Reilly. Using a -6AN x -6 straight end hose fitting (RUS-610025) and a -6AN x -6 swivel 90 hose fitting (RUS-610165). Fittings purchased from Summit Racing





I fabricated a bracket using 6061 aluminum flat bar that I purchased from Metalsdepot.com Also pictured is<br/>-Equus mechanical oil pressure gauge (EQU-6234) Summit Racing <br/>-Oil pressure sensor (purchased on Ebay)<br/>-Metric adapter -6AN male x 16mm female (RUS-640830) Summit Racing <br/>-Tee adapter -6AN male x -6AN female x 1/8 npt female (RUS-670343) Summit Racing <br/>-Stainless steel bolts, nuts, washer, lock washer and stainless steel hose clamp. Purchased at Lowe's home improvement.

Using the supplied nylon tubing kit that comes with the gauge connect the sensor to the 1/8" npt port on the adapter tee.

Note: I wrapped the 1/8" npt fitting and oil pressure sensor with pipe thread tape, sometime in the future I will replace with copper gauge tubing.



Mount bracket, then connect the oil pressure sensor plug and the hose. Start it up and check for leaks.

Note: Be careful not to over tighten the AN fittings, you can always tighten more if they are leaking. If you over tighten them they will always leak and need replaced.
