Re: Leaking oil on to passenger side floor!?
nope, but you need the exact right ferral and compression pieces to snug into the gauge exactly right to seal it. These 2 pieces are matched to the gauge so the compression piece squeezes down just right to seal it all.
Pull the gauge out, see if its leaking there then see if its copper line or plastic line, could be either after so many years. Then visit with auto store, maybe even take the gauge with you to get that ferral and compression piece just right. You might get away with cutting off the old ferral and compression piece and installing new one with the threaded cap over it. If not, you might have to replace the whole line out to the engine.
