Re: 4kq Oil Pan Removal


It's very likely that it's the sensor.  Many people pull the buzzer 
relay.  I'm not sure, but I think the buzzer has a sensor, and there's 
a separate sensor for the pressure gauge.  

4kq's do have a pressure guage, don't they?  I know they are 
missing one of the three gauges that the Coupe Gt's have.

I've taken the pan off.  What would you like to know.
