    New Oil Temperature Sensor in Hamilton

    What does the oil temperature sensor do?New oil temperature sensors in Hamilton

    Many performance vehicles will have oil temperature gauges installed which allow the driver to see what temperature the oil is. The oil temperature sensor measures the temperature of your car’s oil supply and sends this information to the gauges.

    In order for your engine to run optimally, the oil needs to reach a certain temperature. This is why people will often leave their car idling on a cold day before beginning their drive. Low oil temperatures may cause the oil to not lubricate your engine properly, resulting in premature wear. High oil temperature can lead to your engine overheating.

    Why oil temperature is important >

     

    Causes of oil temperature sensor not working:

    There are several things that can cause your car’s oil temperature sensor to malfunction. These include:

    • Damaged wiring and connection issues
    • Corrosion in and around the sensor
    • Incorrect installation (for aftermarket sensors)

     

    Symptoms of a faulty oil temperature sensor:

    Oil gauge too low or high – A faulty oil temperature sensor may display incorrect readings. This can prevent you from knowing the right temperature of your car’s oil. 

    Check engine light on – In some cars, a faulty oil temperature sensor can lead to the check engine light turning on. 

    Oil gauge not moving – Faulty wiring can lead to a severed connecting between the sensor and gauge. This can prevent the gauge from showing any reading at all. 

    Cooling system issues – A high oil temperature can also be caused by your cooling system not working correctly. If your oil temperature gauge and engine temperature gauge are both giving high readings, it could be because coolant isn’t reaching your engine correctly. This can be due to a faulty thermostat, radiator, or another cooling system component.
