This is going to be a sensor on the side of the trans. Unfortunately, I
don't have the part number handy. It leaks and drips right on the right cat.
Pull it out to get the part number. No need to drain the oil as it only
seems to leak when the car is moving. I never did find out what this part
does. It is not the backup light switch. I tested that. Might have something
to do with the torsen and ABS as the ABS wiring does show a sensor other
than the wheel sensors. I was not able to find the part in the transmission
diagram on the fiche or Family Album.
