Does anyone know if I can remove the sender without draining the oil
from the engine
, or when I pull the sender out, will the oil
pour out the hole?
I suspect I have a faulty sender on 1 engine
, and would like to take the sender from the other engine and install and try it to confirm, but would like to know if I need to drain the oil from both engines before attempting this.
Symptoms, in case anyone it helps another:
Oil pressure alarm
"chirps" at idle speed.
Sounds full when put under load until about 2000rpm.
Above 2000rpm the alarm
I had changed the oil about 2 running hours before the issue appeared, and all was fine during those 2 hours. Just in case, I just drained the oil, removed and replaced the filter again, and checked the attachment location for the filter for anything '"odd" and did not notice anything. The engine's oil level is full.
I am hoping it is just the sender, and since I have another engine, seems an easy place to start as I don't have a pressure gauge.
