[DML] Oil Leak



Thanks everyone for the help. The bolt size must be larger than 22mm 
because that's the largest wrench I have and it still won't fit.

I am having the same leak, though mine is probably worse than your at
the moment. Here's a pic of what I imagine you're looking at, from
the driver's side looking straight up near the back of the car, a few
inches above the oil pan:

That's the oil pressure sensor, all right. I enjoy the irony of the
part that's supposed to let you know of a low pressure situation 
being
the source of a leak. I got a new one which I'm looking forward to
putting in while doing my first oil change, it was less than $20 with
a new seal too.

I'm hoping it's as easy as it looks to replace.
