Oil level sensor...

Postby nick.gerasimchuk » Tue Jan 13, 2015 11:32 am

Dear group,

I found lately that my oil level sensor is leaking through its body and I need a new one. Local dealers and car repairs (Springfield, MO) don't have this part, and Mustang's/Mercury's parts are not fitting. Any idea where to find one? - I hate to disconnect that sensor and plug the hole with a bolt... :|

Sincerely,
Nick

I'm not sure where best to find it, but the 302 HO Mustang engine parts are the same thing for any 88-92 Mark VII. So concentrate the hunt for those, don't mention Mark VII. I know there have been members here to replace the oil level sensor, search the forum to see if you can dig up the part number. Regards,

That should be it, the F2AZ 6C624 B. I saw that Amazon has it too, and the prices seem to be about $70 and up for a new one. That seems to fit lots of Fords of the mid 80's to late 90's era.

Thank you all who replied! - Now I know where to look. Apparently, I had wrong part number - F3LY 6C624 A - and my search went nowhere... :cry:

Many thanks again!

Dear group,

When I looked at that oil level sensor I asked myself how it works. I did not see any electric feed coming to/from it... Am I missing something?

Looks like the plug might be a part of the O2 sensor loom?

Maybe an aftermarket pigtail plug???

You might want to get a service manual and a parts book?


OK, now I got it! - It was not seen from the first e-bay picture that there is a hole inside the body... So, if Ford part will not have proper pigtail and has to be re-wired?

No. The wiring harness that has the oil sensor plug has many wires in it and if the plug was damaged it would be easier to just replace the plug rather then changing the harness.

On the Mustangs the oil level sensor wiring was on the 02 sensor harness. On the Fox Cougar/Thunderbird, it isn't. It runs off the main engine harness.

If you're swapping it because it is only leaking yet works properly, might I suggest pulling it out and giving it a thorough cleaning first before spending the money? Some info the following thread on how to disassemble it.

Thank you for good suggestions! - I will definitely do it. If electric plug is fixable I will clean it and try to reuse having a new sensor. Now the question: a new gasket is needed too... Does ford have it? What material is made of? - I can easily make it from teflon or high quality thick leather... Will it work?

Gasket / washer is ordered. Let see if it will fit.

Dear group,

Finally I obtained new oil level sensor, gasket, and installed it. All works fine so far. Now I can confirm that Mustang 5.0 L motor and its parts largely fit to Mark 7 ones. Specifically that sensor. Moreover, the plug fits too, which was a question of my major concern. That is the harness is the same for both cars.

Many thanks to all who saw my post and replied with a nice ideas and suggestions!!!

Nick :)
