First find the oil pressure sensor, probably on the oil filter housing. Then get the VDO oil/temp/pressure fitting. It threads perfectly into the housing. Then you will just run your wires then install your sensors and your done.

Thats the very one! Mine has been in for over 2 weeks now and no issues. wrapped it in some thread tape and bam!! It is a tight fit thread so go slow you'll know when to stop.

Most senders are 1/8" NPT threads. You need to look at where you are going to tap in to see what kind of room you have.

There is no easy way to get coolant temperature other than OBDII. Oil temp is even harder.

That being said an oil filter port adapter is best for temp and pressure. For the coolant on the 2L I drilled and tapped the rear coolant pipe near the OEM temp sender. This was easy to do and did not require draining the coolant. You can easily plug it if you do not want to keep the sender there.

Not sure where he asked about the coolant temp. There is PLENTY of room to use that fitting and both your factory and aftermarket sensor. I will take pictures when I get the car back stupid dealership. And I test fitted it before install and it worked fine.

The Factory oil pressure sensor is screwed into the oil filter housing. You can't miss it, and no offense, but if people are having trouble finding the sensor, then they should not be working their car. The sensor comes out really easy I suggest an adjustable wrench to remove it.

The factory sensor is to the left in the picture and the autometer is to the right.

Just remeber it is going to be a "tight fit thread" Its going to go in very snug, don't over tighten the fitting as you may strip out the threads and not know it. I marked my fitting by drawing a line matching where the threads stopped showing wear so I didn't go too far.

Trust me its not anyone near complicated that thread has made it!! Also as one other person pointed out and I saw immediatly!! He was referencing his power steering pump! :wtf:

Trust me when you goto change your oil you will see where the oil filter is, the sensor just above screwed into the housing where your oil filter is, is the factory oil pressure sensor.

I suggest going to the general section and down loading the 2.0 manual its free and will help you with your oil change as well.The picture you see I uploaded is what your going to see.

I have a 2.0 and the autometer mechanical oil pressure gauge. The fitting that came with it is much different. Anyone know if it would just go to the same location, or would I need this t fitting?

The OEM fitting is metric.

EDIT: Actually using my super duper Parker thread gauge identification kit it looks like a tapered 1/8" - 28 BSPT. Definitely is not an 1/8"-27 NPT thread.

If you are some what handy the 2L oil filter adapter comes off the block easily and the gasket is reusable. On top of the adapter you can see a flat cast in boss that's at ~45* angle that could be drilled and tapped for whatever. It's on the filter out side of the flow so it would be after any adapter plates and just above the OEM sensor.

These people are money hungry... The part is $13.25, $8.95 is USPS shipping and $5 handling fee because the order is less than $25. Really hate to deal with businesses like that. Are there any other places that sell something like this?

I've had two brass nipples crack on me at the oil pressure sender port. Get a steel one.

Search for "1/8" BSPT Oil Pressure Sensor Tee to NPT Adapter Turbo Supply Feed Line Gauge T" on ebay
