sensor location 1987 GMC Safari 4.3

Unread post by godschildtheresa » Tue Oct 14, 2014 5:21 am

I need pictures of the locations for the sensors on a 1987 GMC Safari 4.3 TBI automatic. I have a fluid leak coming from a sensor near the oil filter. Oil is dripping down the wire connector.

if the oil seems to be coming through the sensor then dripping off the wiring, it is most likely the oil pressure sending unit. It goes right into the oil line to see the pressure the engine builds up.

Thanks that's what I thought it was. When it stops raining here in Kentucky I'going to crawl under there and take a picture!

OK, I took pictures and guess what! There is a hole the size of a pencil in the front pan.I was informed that this is a torque converter cover and the reason transmission fluid is leaking out is because my front transmission seal is worn out.
