    Hi all,
    I needed to replace the oil pressure sensor. I assumed there would be no oil coming from the hole after I unscrew the sensor, as it is located higher than oil pan. But to my surprise oil poured from it as soon as I removed the sensor. I promptly screwed it back in. The first question is why is oil pouring? The second question is how to replace the sensor in this situation?
    Thanks for any help.
