Default PLEASE HELP. Oil pressure switch leak? PICTURE INSIDE

Hey, guys. I had the timing belt replaced along with an oil change on my 2007 2.5i less than a week ago from the dealer. Today, I noticed a strong oil smell while driving. Not sure if its related to the work that was done or a new issue. A little research on here looks like it may be the oil pressure switch? Any clues? Thanks for any input.



Sorry about the typo. Supposed to say oil pool. Wow.

Definitely not related to a timing belt job or oil change - but the strong oil smell could be oil that got on the exhaust from taking the oil filter off. It happens all the time.

Keep your eye on the oil level, as it could also be a leaky filter or loose drain plug dribbling oil onto hot bits.

Or it could be that the oil from that switch is dripping down too.

They REALLY should have caught that and let you know and/or fixed it for you after spending as much as you did for a timing belt job..

How about giving us a clue on year, model & engine?

Earlier EJ engines had the oil pressure sender sorta between/ behind the PS pump and the alternator.

So, not knowing what the frig you have means we can only guess!

How about filling in your signature with.....year, model, engine, trains, miles, mods.......


PS, fixed your typo in my quote of your post........
