[DML] Re: copper washer for oil sending unit - new question

No. Its a low pressure switch, not a low level switch. It's an oil 
pump pressure connection, if the engine is off, nothing will come 

If you are replacing the switch make sure that the copper washer is the right size - it should be a very close fit as you slide it over the threads. I've seen some around provided with a washer that's just a bit too big, and they leak like crazy because it won't seal agains the block. Also be sure NOT to loosen the back nut that the wire attaches to, that's a very common leak point and it's difficult to tighten as there's no where to grab the back side.
