Question 1998 R129 Oil Level Sensor

How does one access the oil level sensor on the 119 engine. The right side
of the oil pan is wet with oil. The leakage doesn't appear to be coming from
the valve cover and the oil pan is tight. Thanks

On the in line 6 cars, the sensor bolts to the side of the oil pan with 2 bolts, the V8 should be the same. There is an o ring for sealing and one wire for sensing.

If the leak is around the sensor, change the o ring. If leaking from the wire connection, change the sensor. You will need to drain the oil for this change

1998 R129 Oil Level Sensor

Thanks for the reply. Can one change the O-rings without
dropping the lower pan? This site and all of you who contribute
is a God-send. I'm almost 77 and still trying to maintain this
old man's corvette.

No, the connector and o ring withdraw inwards. Sump must be removed.
