oil pan sensor ?

OK guys, I just looked at the oil pan on my LS3 crate engine and noticed this sensor. The Holley pan has no provision for this. What did you guys do ?? Thx.

Re: oil pan sensor ?

On the corresponding connector,
If sensor is a level sensor, short across the closed contacts indicating to the PCM oil level is good.
If sensor is a temp sensor, boil in a pan of water to a 180-220 and measure resistance, then jumper in a resistor of close to the same value, since there are three terminals, in satisfying the PCM.

Re: oil pan sensor ?

Thanks Everett, I think it may just be a low oil level sensor. I have to look if my GMPP harness has a connection for it. I'm guessing it might not even be used.

I believe it is a high temperature sensor but fear not, you don't have a plug for this on the GMPP harness so you don't have to worry about having a provision in the Holley pan!

You're welcome sir! Also after doing some research it looks like you were right and it is an oil level sensor, not a temperature sensor.

I don't think there is a connector on the harness for it. I could be wrong, but I don't have mine hooked up (if there is a connector) and there are no codes.
