HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

I see it now. Embarassed

Stupid knock sensor wire was hiding it.

So, what is everyone running for sensor wise (oil pressure + coolant temp for dash)? How important is it that the ECM knows oil pressure? It won't trigger a CEL without it, will it? I am not sure if it was programmed out on my end.

The sensor on the back of the block only goes to the gauge. The ECU does not see oil pressure! Shocked

Ah, gotcha. I have yet to look over the ECM wiring let alone touch it and I have dealt with cars that like oil pressures. Razz

I ended up getting a remote oil filter mount that had extra ports for this exact purpose. That way the original stays where it should and you can connect it to the PCM if you want (IIRC). I still havent installed my motor yet.

I got it off of ebay. Cant remember who the seller was.

I got this idea from XSCHOP. Hopefully he will shime in here...

Oil Pressure adaptor

Post  fliermike45 on Wed Mar 02, 2011 7:52 pm

Here is the Street Performance Oil pressure adaptor.
This version allows you to use the existing device that's behind the intake manifold and also use a
1/8" sensor that's specified in Sloan's manual.

But why run the stock one? If it's sole purpose was for the dash gauge, then we don't need it anymore.

Learning

Post  fliermike45 on Wed Mar 02, 2011 8:20 pm

Always ready to learn something new.

Actually my engine had a oil temp sender in the bat wing oil pan, guess it can go in the adaptor.

I noticed that the VDO 360-009 oil sender is available at egauges.com for 25 dollars. They also have a 1/8 27NPT female to M16 x 1.5 male adapter, so I am going to try that out to see if I can fit the sender behind the intake. Worst case is I move that sender elsewhere or get that T adapter that Mike posted.

You will need to put a 90 degree fitting on the sending unit to get it to fit in the original location, it won't fit standing straight up.

It fits, just it's a very tight fit. Plus, you have the bolt getting in the way. You can either add a spacer to the 1/8th NPT, or change that rear bolt out for a hex style/shorter head style bolt.

Oil Pressure Sending Unit

Post  WillSoz on Fri Mar 18, 2011 1:17 pm

Finally got my adapter in place. It will fit in stock location without changing anything. As mentioned, it is quite tight though. I had to take off my intake manifold, mount the adapter/sender, then re-install the intake. Luckily I am still in the middle of the build so not too much of an issue. I put a couple pics in my gallery to show the adapter, and fitment. The shots are kind of crappy from my phone...
