Sensor behind oil filter housing

What is the sensor behind the oil filter housing and why is it leaking lots of oil after EGR/oil cooler upgrade?

There are a couple of sensors back there... Is it on the oil cooler itself? Could be the oil pressure sensor which is a press-in sensor. Could have come out or the o-ring for it is gone; Most likely case.

It was the oil pressure sensor. Seemed to be leaking right through the electrical part. Anyway changed it out-fired right up.
Now the turbo seems to be very hot. Slight squeek at high boost(28-30) Cant tell if its the oil burning off but it seems very dry where its smoking from.

Lucky you, a diesel performance shop replaced my sensor before i bought it and stripped the threads, now I have a bolt in it till I get the housing for it replaced!

Glad it was a quick fix for ya though
