P0298 FORD code

The P0298 code is stored when the PCM detects that the engine is or has recently overheated, according to a signal from the engine oil temperature sensor.

What is code P0298?

The engine control module (PCM) uses an Engine Oil Temperature Sensor to determine the temperature of the engine oil. If the Engine Oil gets too hot, the PCM will set code P0298. Driving with this trouble code is not recommended. A vehicle with this code should be taken in to a repair shop for diagnosis.

What causes a P0198 code?

What the P0198 code means. This code indicates there is higher voltage than expected in one or all of the circuits involving the EOT system (low oil engine temperature).

Where is the oil temperature sensor located?

Locate the oil temperature sensor in the engine compartment. It will typically be mounted in either the engine block or in the cylinder head.

What is a oil temperature sensor?

Thermometrics Oil Temperature Sensor (OTS) monitors the temperature of the engine oil in a vehicle and displays this measurement to the vehicle’s occupants. If a vehicle operates at too high a temperature, the engine can be in danger of damage.

How do I know if my oil temperature sensor is bad?

One way to know your oil temperature sensor is failing is if you get false readings due to the electrical signal output by the temperature sensor. These are indicated by the temperature gauge going from cool to hot in one minute.

How do you test an oil temperature sensor?

Zitat von Youtube: Here. So you are supposed to see some reading at your multimeter screen well this sensor right here has a 1563 ohms.
