Huh?
You replaced the switch several times?
Maybe you have a short in the wiring or a computer malfunction. Any codes?

Why would you just unplug a vital sensor on your vette? That is insane. Have you had a Corvette tech look at the problem?

The sensor went out and gave irratic readings, i replaced 5 in 70,000 miles. the only codes were after the sensor failed and it was a high and low voltage code. no other problems found.

that sounds a bit extreme, im guessing the problem lies somewhere within the wiring as another member mentioned

ive lost an oil pump before and though it gets you a nice new engine just remember that you have to pay for it and the aftermath isnt exactly pretty (but i guess it does make a good coffee table :laughing: )

It's a temporery fix, i keep an eye on the temps until i can re-locate the sensor, aparently there are problems with sensors, if anyone has found a reliable one other then the oem, please let me know.

by the time temps are able to rise you've already hurt the block... in my case i never had any signs except it stalled once before the engine seized (the day before actually) and started right back up without a problem :crazy: (prolly shut down due to the sensor but the pump wasn't near enough to failure)

sometimes the warning signs aren't always so apparent ;)

OIL pressurre sensor relocation kit

Mine went at 5k on my 2006. I sure the hell am not going for Warrantee work. I did some research. Very high failure rate.

Heres what I made: The heat kills them.
