'93 Chrysler Concorde, Leaking Oil Pressure Sensor
Q: My son owns a 93 Chrysler Concorde. The oil pressure-sending unit, because it was leaking oil through it was replaced. Now its now doing the same thing about 2 months later. Could there be too much oil pressure causing these to leak?

A: Too much, oil pressure in a 93 Chrysler Concorde? Not likely Dan. The oil filter would have bubbled like a balloon or just blown off the engine. Oil pressure switches like many other automotive parts come in different levels of quality. The really affordable stuff is just a problem waiting to be bolted in. Also oil pressure switches can be damaged when being installed. Hey, that happens to the best of us. Last but not the least, the product is defective. Weve practiced more than once at replacing new parts that just werent made right. It just sounds as if a replacement oil pressure switch is your next job.
