Changing Oil Pressure Switch

Post by AngeloEvs »

I need to replace the oil pressure switch that sits between the push rod tubes.  

Will I lose a lot of oil as I have only just done an oil change and new filter and is it straightforward to access?

As long as you are fairly quick less than a couple of teaspoons full 
if you Jack the van up on the n/s you loose less.
idealy don’t run it before hand so the oil is thicker Too
