Information - Oil temperature sensor

For a good engine performance, oil temperature is the most important. The driver gets this information only from an additional built-in car device. Just out of curiosity, you can compare the engine temperature at the edge of the oil filter or oil pump – there the lubricant temperature is, probably, the lowest. Reaching the piston rings, oil temperature increases up to 300 degrees.

If your car is equipped with an oil thermometer, the maximal temperature in the crankcase should not exceed 145 degrees. But the main condition, of course, is to fill in high quality oil. A very low oil temperature is as harmful for the engine, as a high one. When the temperature is too low, the oil does not reach its full lubricating capacity. In order to achieve the required operating temperature, the oil needs twice as long as the cooling fluid. After a cold start it is better not to raise the engine speed to more than 3500 rotations per minute until the oil warms up to at least 60 degrees.

Buy an oil temperature sensor in our online store and you will appreciate the advantages. First of all, this means a detailed step by step process, highest resolution and excellent readability of the sensor performance. Our sensors have a good indicator device and the sensor needle does not go off-scale.

We assure you that digital sensors are very reliable and do not make noise during operation. Apart from oil temperature sensor, you can also purchase in our online store other car sensors, such as the fuel level sensor, temperature sensor, oxygen sensor and throttle position sensor.

All the parts you ordered will be delivered in the shortest time and to the most convenient place.

What is necessary to know about oil temperature sensor: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Manufacturers do not provide specific recommendations for sensor operation terms. Mostly, necessity for component replacement occurs due to its contacts oxidation.

The presence of a defect is indicated, first of all, by the fact that the sensor incorrectly displays or does not show the temperature at all. Normal oil temperature should be 10-20% higher than cooling liquid temperature. If this difference is higher or lower than noted, you need to check the sensor. Also, a defect may be indicated by turning on of the control lamp on the dashboard. Engine oil temperature sensor defects may be detected with the help of computer diagnostics at a service station.

For component replacement it is necessary to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery, disconnect all the wires, leading to the sensor, remove the fastening bolts and remove the part. Often, it is necessary to drain oil before starting works. A new sensor is installed in the reverse order. After replacement it is recommended to start the engine and check for leakage.
