The oil pressure sensor (2) is located on the oil filter housing (3). The oil pressure sensor is a three wire sensor with a tapered threaded sensor port. The sensor port is mounted to the oil filter housing through an access hole. A thread lock patch seals the oil pressure sensor to the oil filter housing.
The repair procedure says you need to remove the upper and lower intake manifold. It says the sensor converts pressure to a voltage. "The zero pressure reading is 0.5 volt and full scale is 4.5 volt." You might want to check the wires and grounds before going to all the trouble to replace the sensor
Kelli, on 2.7 motor it is by oil filter above steering rack, in the eng. block, I think some may behind alternator and bracket also.
If these location do not seem to be right, do a online search with your info. and engine size.
You're vehicle has two sensors for the oil,an oil pressure sensor switch & oil pressure sensor.If oil pressure gets below 6psi,the oil pressure sensor switch will turn a dash light on to let you know the pressure is at a dangerously low amount.So if you've got a dash light on,the pressure sensor switch needs to be replaced.Its located to the right of the oil filter housing,on a 2.0 liter.Its located to the left of the oil filter housing,on the 3.0 liter.
If your oil pressure gauge is reading inaccurately,you need to replace the oil pressure sensor instead.Its located near the ac compressor.
On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left
side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the
sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil
filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter
adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

Hope help with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.
The oil light on your car has nothing to do with oil level in the crankcase but rather oil pressure. The oil pressure switch/sensor is located on the rear of the engine block above the right axle I believe. Unless you have engine noise or suspect low oil pressure, I'd replace it but you could check oil pressure for peace of mind with an pressure gauge if you wish. You may need a special socket to replace it.
