Default Oil pressure sensor part number

I just tried replacing my leaky oil pressure sender with URO C46272 and it does not seem to fit. It threads in a few mm as if the pitch is incorrect. Somehow, the replacement water temperature sensor (DAC2583) I ordered is doing the exact same crap.

Wtf?

Anyway, the pressure sensor broke further when I removed it, and I am afraid it would leak too much to use temporarily now. I need to get a replacement ASAP, but I don't want to order another one that won't fit.


Does anyone know whether standard motor products PS293 would fit? It is my only other option on Amazon where I could take advantage of 2 day shipping. I'm sure a Jaguar parts retailer would be more likely to get it right the first time, but that would probably put me nearly a week out in shipping and I need to get to school.

EDIT: I'm getting even more confused and unsure of ordering parts because reputable sites like XKs, Terry's Jag, and Jagbits are listing these same part numbers.

The OPS has a taper thread, as it goes in it tightens and jams slightly, by design, which makes it seal. Just do not force it. The WTS is, as far as I can remember not a taper thread but I could well be wrong. Rockauto have these parts, usually by more mainstream makers, and they do fit.

The sending unit is not tapered. The old one and new one both have copper crush washers.
I noticed on the part listed on Terry's Jag "LHD5642AA" there is no shoulder for the washer and that part must be incorrect since it probably has a tapered thread.

Idk how I forgot this, but my dad just called and will be sending me the one off of my spare engine at his house.

I will be measuring the originals and replacements and posting that info in case someone needs it for future reference.

I think the issue may be something along the lines of a manufacturer (URO) thinking something is compatible across platforms and labeling part numbers as such.

Maybe SNG barratt will be a good bet? I'm just afraid of slow shipping times.

NAPA carries the sending unit. Give your local store a call. Mine had it in stock.

I also used NAPA replacements for both the gauge sending unit (#6160) and the warning light switch (#6163). Both fit perfectly...but it seems that the gauge reads too high. Not quite sure as I haven't had time to thoroughly investigate

If in a time crunch, I've two ideas. Each a bodge/dodge!!


1. Take the sensor to the nearest full service hardware store.
Match the sensor threads to a simple plug. No leaks, make sure the sump is full. go to school. Then, to the proper fix.


2. Ruin the ruined original. Knock or grind off the "top". Leaver the threads and as much of the "grip" part as possible. Drill out the center. Install a bolt and nut. Lots of sealer. You have created a plug.
OK til the right sensor becomes available.

It sounds like you need the Oil pressure switch for the Gauge not the light. Check out PS288, Might find it at a Auto Zone in you area. I use Orielly's where I'm at and the Borg Warner number is BWD- S4100. These use the crush washers, not a tapered thread like the Light switch has.

So found the sizes (with difficulty).

New temp sensor is 14mm fine (1.5)
Old temp sensor is 5/8 fine

New oil pressure sender 14mm fine
Old pressure sender 13mm fine

Since 13mm is so close to 1/2 the hardware store didn't carry any 13mm (13mm=5.12"). Between Autozone, Advance Auto, and Ace hardware, no one had a thread pitch gauge >_>

But after finding the other thread sizes and knowing what didn't fit, I can safely assume the M13 1.25 listed on summit racing is the correct size. I haven't looked into it more yet, but it would appear these parts are for face-lift cars and are being listed as compatible with my 1988, because the correct m13 is listed on summit for a 1981-1991.

I did consider plugging it if I found the correct size at the hardware store, but they don't carry M13...

Sorry if I gave that impression by simply saying sensor and not specifying which sensor in the title.

Jaguar Classic Parts IS Jaguar and therefore UK-based. But one of their parts storage warehouses is in the US. So there is a very good chance that when you order a part, it's already in the US available for local despatch.

Good luck

I may actually order the one Summit has since they are close by in Atlanta.

I wish I knew the make up the last one so I could tear it open and show what caused it to start leaking. While 5 years isn't absolutely useless, it is a little considering the original lasted closer to 22

Does anyone know where I can find the correct sending unit for the gauge on a 92 V12? its a face-lift car with XJ40 style gauges. I'm getting a few different part numbers when i search but the one on the car is the smaller style with the wired in resistor. Needle is just sitting dead on the pin but the oil pressure light goes off on startup.
Thanks
Kevin
