so i noticed yesterday that my 94 yj 4cyl is hemorging oil all over the place.. when i lay under it the passenger side is completely soaked of the underside of the motor... i cant see it leaking from anywhere... i pulled the battery out to get a light down inside the motor and i think it could possibly be leaking from this sensor port? between the distributor and the alternator on the passenger side of the motor;

any idea what this sensor is/does and if this is a common failure?

it looks liek the port has a 90o elbow into the side of the head/block... is there a gasket/seal here? or a failure point.

thanks for any help in advance

That's the oil pressure switch. Replace it before the engine runs out of oil and blows up. They're about $20-$25 new.
