Having the right amount of oil in an engine is important to the smooth running of your engine. In order for the engine on a car to run as intended, it will have to have the right amount of oil. If the oil level in your car begins to decrease, it is the job of the low oil level sensor to alert you. There are a number of causes that can lead to the oil in your car leaking out. The low oil level sensor is mounted in the oil pan and it keeps a check on the amount of oil contained in the engine. Every time that you crank your car and run it, this sensor will be there monitor the oil levels.

Just like any other sensor on your car, the low oil level sensor is designed to last just as long as the car does. Usually, the rough conditions that this sensor has to operate in cause it can wear out faster than expected. Not being able to find out when the oil level in your car is low can lead to a lot of damage. Due to the fact that this sensor is not checked during a routine maintenance procedure, the only interaction you will usually have with it is when it is broken.

The location of the low oil level sensor can make it very hard for you to get to it without some professional assistance. In order to remove this sensor, you will have to take the oil pan off, which can be a very rough job. Rather than trying to do this type of complicated repair on your own, you will have to find the right professionals to help.

Here are some of the things that you may notice when your low oil level sensor is in need of repair:

  • The Low Oil Light is coming on even when there is plenty of oil in the car
  • The warning lights on the instrument cluster are acting erratic
  • The oil level is not registering as it should

Taking notice of these warning signs and getting your low oil level sensor replaced can reduce the damage to your vehicle. Sources:

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
