Sounds like it may be the oil pressure lamp switch,these are known to fail sometimes.Don't mess around when oil leakage is severe,call at any garage for a visual check and correct diagnosis.Delay might cost you an engine.Geoff.

How does a crank shaft sensor stop engine running?

The crankshaft sensor is critical to the operation of the engine as it supplies information to the engine management computer. It senses both crankshaft position and engine RPM. If the sensor is defective, or improperly adjusted, then the computer cannot receive the proper signals, and can't keep the engine running.

It also has a sensor near the engine mount that needs replaced if it already ran hot. Its on the engine where the hose from radiator to goes to engine. One sensor is for coolant level and one for the temp sensor. Near the pulleys.

Where is the iat sensor located on a 2003 Ford Mondeo 2.0 zetec?

The 2003 Mondeo does not have a IAT Sensor is has a Temperature and Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor (TMAP) The TMAP sensor fits directly into the inlet manifold and accurately measures the vacuum from the engine. The TMAP sensor consists of a temperature sensor and a pressure transducer and therefore replaces the IAT and the MAP sensors. The TMAP sensor provides the powertrain control module with information relating to inlet manifold vacuum and barometric pressure along with the temperature of the air in the inlet manifold. With the ignition on but without the engine running the sensor reads barometric pressure and when the engine is running, the sensor reads inlet manifold vacuum.

The throttle position sensor determines the amount of throttle used when the engine is running at various speeds. If the sensor is faulty, it can be replaced by ordering a new part.
