Protecting VW's since the 1960's...

Let us first introduce our Hot Oil Sensor. It was created by Harold Brown in the late 1960's and remains virtually unchanged since the first one was offered for sale, over 40 years ago. We view that as testament to its design, quality and benefit. 1,000's have been sold around the world.

So what is it, and how does it work?

By simply replacing your original dipstick with our Hot Oil Sensor, then attaching an 18" wire (included with the kit) to the oil pressure switch, you immediately begin to monitor your engine's oil temperature.
Now you finally know when your engine is running too hot !

From this point forward the light at the bottom of your odometer serves two functions. While continuing to monitor your oil pressure it now provides the data from your Hot Oil Sensor as well. Now, when your engine oil reaches 225 degrees F the light will begin to flicker, indicating that you are approaching an unsafe operating temperature. Simply reduce your speed and the light will typically stop flickering, indicating your oil temperature has fallen to a safe operating temperature once again.

If your oil temperature continues to rise to 235 degrees F the light will remain on, solid. This is the temperature at which we recommend pulling over at the first safe opportunity in order to investigate the issue.

So simple VW would be proud.

Typical installation time is five minutes. And it's even faster to remove when entering your "bone stock" VW in a classic show. Even better, there's no additional gauges to mount on your dashboard, something for which we take tremendous pride. After all, simplicity is the trademark of this fine little car and our Hot Oil Sensor manages to honor, not alter that concept. After your installation you'll have an early warning device. Nothing more, nothing less. Simple, clean and reliable. Just like your Volkswagen.

But you've now added Peace of Mind . . . affordably !
