About Oil Level Sensors

The Jaguar oil level sensor works to read the oil levels in the car engine and this information is displayed on the dashboard for the driver to enable oil levels to be topped up when required.

The location of the oil level sensor will vary from vehicle to vehicle. Depending on the make, year and model of vehicle, the oil level sensor will be positioned on the passenger side or the driver's side of the engine, located in the side of the oil tank. A double wired harness is plugged into the sensor, with a connector attaching directly to the sensor. The oil level sensor should sit tightly secured inside the oil tank.

The purpose of the oil level sensor is to provide the driver with accurate oil level read outs to help prevent the car running out of oil. The oil level sensor is usually made up of a float which is connected to a metal rod, which is attached to a variable resistor (an electrical apparatus designed to counteract or resist electrical current).  As the oil is used, the float lowers in the oil tank. As the float lowers it runs along a moving contact on the resistor which increases the resistance of the float. The oil level sensor detects the resistance levels and the oil level indicator on the dashboard reflects this by slowly moving down, or merely indicates with the aid of a light when oil levels are low. Instead of this resistive type of oil sensor, some modern oil level sensors are capacitive level measurement sensors. These are a more accurate electronic or magnetic type of sensor with no moving parts which function to provide precise oil level measurement and enable reliable oil level readout.

Jaguar trivia

  • The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
  • Jaguar isn't a big name in F1, but they did have a go. They raced between 2000 and 2004 but didn't perform well enough to justify the costs. They managed a less than stellar ninth place in their final race.
  • The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
  • Talk about testing your car! Jaguars are put through a very rigorous climate test, where they are first tested in -40 degrees for twelve hours. Once that's done, the cars are then sprayed with water while standing in a 0-degree wind tunnel. That's why they cope so well with British weather.
  • The Jaguar XJ has that luxurious leather interior, but did you know that all of that leather comes very specifically from Scottish Angus Bulls? Bulls don't get stretch marks, and they don't get bitten much by mosquitoes either. Belly and neck skin becomes the dash and door finish, while the backbone and the rump are used for the seats.
