After replacing the oil pan gasket, the "low oil level" light stays on. The oil pressure is normal, and so is the level in the engine. they said replace the "oil pressure sending" unit, they took the old one out and it was fine, could they have damaged the "low level" sensor and not know what they did? (they are two separate sensors?) thank you, Bob Hemp

Bob: Thanks for your inquiry. Oil level and oil pressure are measured using separate sensing systems. If the level sensing feature stopped working at the time the pan gasket was replaced, either the level sensor was damaged, not reconnected, or the wire harness and terminal were damaged. There is a possibility that the wire harness was just never re-connected to the level sensor so check that first.
