i just noticed i had a major oil leak and i need help identifying the part that's leaking and what i need to get to fix/replace it (i dont have my bentley yet as i just got this car)
basically (i hope this is a good enough description) oil is leaking from a plug that is on top of whatever it is the oil filter screws onto, its a plug with a blue wire coming out of it... whatever that is is leaking oil like crazy and i need to replace it or fix it, any help identifying it or fixing it would be appreciated!!

Re: quick question please help! (lizerd)

It is the oil pressure sensor/sender. They are known to leak. Dealer price can't be much more than $10- $15. Screws in. Tighten to about 15 NM, I believe. Don't get the Franchise auto store alternative if you can help it. They are junk.
By the way, it may be only the washer that is bad, which makes it a cheap fix.
