How are people adding oil temperature *and* pressure sensors to a MK4 TDi?


That's two additional sensors, to go with the stock VW low oil switch - attached to the oil filter housing.


There's only one oil tap on my filter housing (pictured below) and it's used for the OEM oil pressure switch.


There's a banjo nut on the other side feeding a metal pipe, so no flex there for aftermarket fittings.


I see sellers offering 'adapters' (also pictured) but if you look at the clearance there's no way you'd get anything on an adpater; not enough room.


So where are people adding the two sensors? Don't see any posts on this other than that below, but I don't have the 'blanking nuts' mentioned, unless I'm looking the wrong place.

just buy one of those t-pieces that can be fitted in between the oem sensor and oil pipe... that is how you do that..  they are found on eBay and motorsport specialist and car tuning websites... I'm quite sure that the user @DPM could be of assistance in getting you the right part also... 

that is if they are actually open. is an independent Volkswagen enthusiast website owned and operated by VerticalScope Inc. Content on is generated by its users. is not in any way affiliated with Volkswagen AG.
