SENSORS AUTO PARTS: OIL TEMPERATURE SENSOR
Oil temperature sensor serves to measure oil temperature in the engine. This information is transmitted to the oil temperature indicator. In the majority of automobiles oil temperature is not displayed because it is not so important for the driver. As a rule, executive-class cars and sports cars are equipped with oil temperature sensor and have the respective indicator. If there are meaningless figures on the indicator, probably the sensor or the indicator failed. It is easy to check by means of a simple function test.Many of car tuning fans insert oil temperature sensors. For this purpose there is a wide range of goods on car parts’ market. When buying the parts you need to pay attention to the fact the oil sensor and the oil indicator to be compatible with each other and with the car. The sensor may be installed into the engine basic block. You need a special adapter for this. It is easy to install the sensor and you can do it without assistance. Be careful using the used parts, in most cases they are not suitable. The oil temperature sensor itself is not expensive, but to install it you may need other details. You may order them in our Internet shop, and thus you can save your money. If the sensor has been installed and you need to substitute it, you need just to buy the sensor itself. In our online shop you can also buy ABS sensor, stub axle, clutch plate, bumper, oil filter, accelerator, turbo- charger, bonnet, body wings and any other parts you need for your car. Take advantage of our online store. It is very easy to order goods by means of the Internet.
HOW TO DETECT OIL TEMPERATURE SENSOR MALFUNCTIONS
First of all, you should check if the contacts are not damaged, and if the sensors are located correctly in the system. After that, measure pressure and resistance with a manometer and an ohmmeter. The first value with the engine working at low rpm must be approximately 2 bars. At increasing of rpm up to 5 thousand, pressure can increase up to 6 bars.
The part electrical resistance changes at its heating. When oil temperature is 0 оC, resistance must reach 5–7 kOhm. Maximum allowed motor oil temperature is 120 оC. At such value sensor resistance must be 150–220 Ohm. Lubricant loses its features at more intense heating.
The component is diagnosed within the framework of regular engine lubrication system check. Ideally, it should be performed every 50000–70000 operational kilometers.
