    Oil temp sensor 2008 R8

    Display shows oil temp senor defective. I would like to replace it but can’t find a listing for it. Is iit a dual sensor that shows both temp and oil level? Not sure why I am having so much trouble finding this part. Thanks

    Replaced mine a few months ago, it's a dual sensor. Part number: 420907660

    Re: Oil temp sensor 2008 R8

    Sorry for bumping this topic...

    I have the oil temp sensor warning...

    I have taken the airbox out..

    Does anyone know whether i need to empty the oil tank before taking this out? as it looks like it has a rubber ring, so stop oil leaks so i am not sure...

    I would think so after looking at this drawing. Assuming we're still talking about a 2008 V8.

    Dont think that is right, the part number is 420907660 and looks completley different to whats shown and the sensor part has a 90 degree down tip.

    Attachment 238660

    And i think the notch on the down tip is the max level of oil..... You see, if it was to fill up, the level will indicate the temp gauge to red for oil level....

    Just got mine shipped as well and about to put this in during the next day or two. Looks like access for R&R might be better served from underneath the car though in lieu of pulling out the airbox ??

    Anyone try this approach ?

    I dont know if the V8 oil reservoir is different from the V10, but I just changed mine (V10) and it was in front of the tank. Oil did not need to be drained, although it did drip a little out. There's a video on youtube one someone doing it. The bottom hex screw was a pain to get out just from how little room there was.

    Cant seem to find it, it must have been taken down.

    Here is what the front of your Oil Reservoir tank

    Remove a bolt holding the top of the tank and bend that heat shield. Pull the tank towards you to get more room. Remove the hex bolts and swap sensor. You might have to twist the sensor around to get it out (you saw how it was shaped).
