An oil condition sensor detects a condition of oil in response to the potential difference between electrodes. The electrodes include at least a first and second electrodes coaxially arranged. The electrodes have projections being arranged to face each other in an opposed manner. Therefore, the projections provide wide surface area that performs as electrodes. It is possible to provide compact oil condition sensor that is easy to install into an oil tank or oil pan.
