oil pressure switch questions
Hi Audi fans,
I'm planning to replace the defected oil pressure switch on my '87 5kcst.
Since I want to make sure I'll get the appropriate oil pressure switch, I
want to confirm with the list first before I make any decision. The oil
pressure switch that needed to replace is the one that has the black/brown?
insulator and with a black rubber boot. It's located at the right side of
the engine block(face toward the rear); it's the bottom one not the upper.
I checked with the friendly dealer yesterday, and they showed me the one
that like this:
0.15 - 0.35 bar
They told me that this is a kinda new or revised one, but it should right
for my car. So, is that the right one? Is the one I needed to replace should
from 0.15 - 0.35 bar?
Another question is, will the engine oil spill out when I take the oil
pressure switch out? Oh, btw, it's summer time now, should I change the
engine oil to Mobil 15w-50 or just leave it to Mobil 10w-30 ?
I would appreciate any suggestions/inputs.
