Being the dilligent student of this blog you are, you’ll remember the fun and larks we had with Herman’s Oil Pressure Sensors, last year in Ireland. [ 1, 2, 3 ], culminating in me encasing the Low Pressure Sensor in epoxy resin, to stop it leaking.
Well, such is the quality of my botch-manship that that ol’ Pressure Sensor hadn’t spilled a drop of oil since then. In fact I’d almost forgotten about it til prepping for this year’s impending journey back to The Oul’ Sod with its inherent hill- and mountain- climbing challenges, brought it back to mind.
I decided, this year, I’d better play safe and head any similar, impending pressure-sensor-related mishaps off at the pass, before we left England. So I nipped down to VW in Trafford Park and picked up a new Pressure Sensor, which now sits, proudly sensing oil pressure, in Herman’s engine bay.
