Oil Sensor Leak Question

Hey guys,

So I have a very small oil leak (like 3 drops a day) coming through what I believe is a faulty gasket on the oil sensor at the bottom of the oil pan. Does anybody know if I can just get the gasket or do I have to shell out the $75 for a brand new sensor?

there's a drip hole as well. Make sure you find the correct source.

A hole for drips to come out

Have a look at the parts diagram and you'll see what's there. It could be an o ring. Clean the area well and check where it's actually coming from.
