What you need to replace an oil pressure sensor on a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser:
|A pair of jack stands|
|A jack to lift the car|
|Genuine 5149098AA Oil Pressure Switch|
|1/2-Inch Drive 27mm deep socket|
|1/2-Inch Drive ratchet|
|A 1/2-Inch universal joint|
|Eventually a 1/2-Inch drive extension bar|
A defective oil pressure sensor switch may cause an oil leak. The oil light may come on and a P0522 error code can be read on your OBD-2 scan tool.
You can replace this sensor without draining oil.
You need to lift your car onto jack stands.
Go under your car and try to find the oil sensor switch. It’s located to the left of the oil drain plug behind some electrical harness:
You can push on the connector and get the wiring off:
You can now use the 27mm deep socket to remove the sensor. Not so much room to work, so you may use a universal joint and eventually an extension bar.
Reinstall the new sensor in reverse order of removal.
Lower your car and start the engine to check if everything is ok.
