this is a good one, been chasing an oil leak that turned out to be the high oil pressure sensor, which was leaking out the back

As at the back of the engine block leading you to think you had a rear main seal leak?

rear oil seal or oil filter housing was first thought but searched and searched, what confused me was the pressure(blue) switch has a rubber cover so not obvious as oil was running down past oil filter housing.

My leak came from the oil cooler o-ring in the end. I have a rear mainseal ready for when the clutch eventually goes.
