    Oil Level Sensor

    00562 - Sensor for Oil Level/Temperature (G266)
    27-10 - Implausible Signal - Intermittent

    Sounds like I need a new Oil level sensor, does anyone know where I could get one, other than Audi. Had a look on carparts4less but could not find one there. My car is a MY2000 APY S3.

    For the record I had the sump dropped and changed the oil pick up pipe about 1000 miles ago with all genuine audi parts/plugs/sealant.
    Wish list; Milltek Cat back non-res exhuast, R32 roll bar, adjustable rear tie-arms, Powerflex polybush dog bone mount, XS Power Manifold, 3"DP, B5 TIP V2, & a Remap :D

    Euro car parts do it, i got mine from there, i believe it was a genuine part as well, just had the original markings rubbed off.

    Really? Do you have a link to the part mate? I had a look on there but didn't see one.

    Ive found one on ebay, but its from an 2001 AMK engine, would it fit/be the same as the sensor on my APY engine? As both are rated at 210ps

    Thanks.

    Im sorry mate i dont have the part number i just rang them and got it from them, worth giving them a call as they sorted it over the phone rather than online. Mine was for an AMK engine.

    Sorry i couldnt be of anymore help.

    Buy a HELLA (same as the original).
    I bought a FEBI and had to replace it twice. Only HELLA work.

    Your a legend mate! Was just about to ask what brand of sensor or what's recommended, to avoid buying cheap Chinese ebay crap just to have it fail on me again withing 6 months. Ill have a browse on the bay now, are the hella sensors for sale on ebay?

    Sorry to keep on, bur does anyone know if tps or gsf would stock this? i can only find sensors "to the spec of" the quoted hella/oem part number and they dont appear genuine.
