Does anyone know where I can get a new oil pressure switch fitted tomorrow or Monday? Can't really afford a taxi for both days this weekend. :(

I went to leave for work this evening and there was a puddle of oil under the car. The NRMA technician and the taxi driver I had to get to take me to work have both said it would be the oil pressure switch. At present the car is in my garage slowly leaking oil all over the place and I don't want to get it towed to my regular mechanic on Tuesday so any suggestions of a really reliable mobile mechanic around the Guildford/Parramatta area that could attend the engine tomorrow or Monday would be most gratefully appreciated. :P

Love the blue font and all, it matches the site quite nicely. but no :twisted:

Where abouts is the oil from under the car?
centre front, rear centre, or just near the drivers wheel?

15 bucks and you will have a new one, not hard to replace your self with the right tools, a rachet spanner is the best way ive found ..

to be sure it is the oil switch thats rooted, check under the front left wheel up onto the side of the engin, in front of and above a bit from the engin mount .. thats where the plug is.
