RE: Please help: Location of Oil Pressure Switch/Sender
OK, I'll answer my own question, posted for future reference for those who may need it. The oil pressure switch is located right next to the oil filter. I got it for $10.00 at Pep Boys. With a crescent wrench and/or large pair of adjustable pliers, you can have this off and a new one installed in about 10-20 minutes. Press hard on one side of thered clip to release it from the electrical connection. Minimal mess and clean-up.
The reason I changed it is because, at idle speed, my oil light was coming on. Upon acceleration and/or while driving, it went off and stayed off. Fearing the worst, I hoped for the best.
(1) Check oil level first; (2) replace oil pressure switch; (3) after that, who knows...oil pump?
Thanks be to God, it was the oil pressure switch,an easy, inexpensive fix.
