a4 b5 1.6 bad leak at oil pressure switch?
I'm very much a novice when it comes to car repairs, but, only yesterday I noticed what appears to be a bad leak coming from the area above the oil filter. Today I had a look, and it appears to be coming from the oil pressure switch. I checked that the bolt wasn't loose for starters - fired up the engine, and put my hand in the area roughly where the problem exists. After a short time, oil appeared to be coming out between the bolt and the spade connector. Has anyone heard of this problem; do I possibly only need to replace the switch, or am I maybe looking at something a bit more serious? The car isn't overheating, and the engine isn't making any strange noises, but does seem to be losing oil at an alarming rate.
