Location on a 2017 jeep renegade oil sensor 2.4L, I need a Diagram Showing Engine Block and Location of Oil Sensor.

Had a Bad Oil Leak on Brand New 2017 2.4L Jeep Renegade, Took it back to Dealership, They work on it All Day, Said that the Threads on Engine Block Not Out Tapped Properly, They Said they Repair the Threads by Tapping Out Again, But still see a little Oil Leak, Once the Engine Block is Screw Up, You Can't Fix this Properly Right ?

Yes, you can fix it with a helicoil. If the jeep is under warranty, make them fix it.

    A helicoil is a small tube threaded on the outside to fit in the newly cut but larger threads in the block. The inside threads are made to fit the sensor. They know what to do--they are just being lazy.

This totally depends on how Much "Hard Driving" that you do. Offroad, 4x4 all the Time, ETC.... If you do I would Change at every 50,000 If not Every 80,000 is OK

How can I replace oil pressure sending unit?

which lamp glows.
there are engine oil and transmission oil (not my M/t is stick)
got P0522 scan errors?
try posting photos of failing lamps. and win.
the tea pot ICON is engine. for sure.

wow1, no engine size stated. gas or diesel.
wow2, not scanning for DTC errors. (always first)
comes on only hot engine, cold or both.? only at idle?
or only at 85mph in Dallas (speed limit there)
what if it is telling the truth, ever consider that?
and then you burn up engine. (falsely condemning sensor)
this is what a pro shop does.

1: check oil levels ,if too full the oil may foam up and do this. bad bad bad... that.
2: checks to be sure correct viscosity oil is there, not 0w. (no location or climate stated by you) RTM read the operators guide on oil type. and climates. recommended, the guide is free.
posted 200 + manuals.
3: we then remove the sensor, and...
4: then attach a shop grade pressure meter.
5: then do the tests in the FSM book,
then (sensor bad or engine bad, is known)
and do what makes sense now,,, not going to answer latter)

the sensors is ported to the main oil gallery on most cars
near oil filters on most cars. due to gallery is used by filter too.
My JK has 3.8L v6 (some have a 2.8L diesel, engine)

the 07 is same as 08, in many factors.
i look in FSM. is see this.
3.8L engine I guess.
5 psi at idle, 30-80 psi at 3000 RPM(jeep spec)
not chilton bs.
i then look at engine location
i see this.
P0522 DTC errors, too..
the cluster glows the oil pressure ICON, looks like Aladens lamp. or tea pot....???
the PCM sets the code, at 1psi, (FSM facts)
so if that is happening, id not drive car. 1PSI, is way too low to run any jeep.

yes, the sensor is hard to find.! for cause...
on the 3.8, the photos on the page, dont help either.
shows lower front left side of engine block. fitment.
but hark the drawing is WRONG
there is Nothing there, with wires.
so where is it, its on the cold water return
fitting on rigth side front of engine.
looks like a water temp sensor, but is NOT.

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 ford taurus 3.0 liter engine located? glenn

On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

Oil pressure gauge drops after running and sitting still

oil pump going, or the crank bearings worn.
are there any noises that appear when oil pressure drops?

check sensor

Oil sensor

The oil light on your car has nothing to do with oil level in the crankcase but rather oil pressure. The oil pressure switch/sensor is located on the rear of the engine block above the right axle I believe. Unless you have engine noise or suspect low oil pressure, I'd replace it but you could check oil pressure for peace of mind with an pressure gauge if you wish. You may need a special socket to replace it.
