the oil pressure sending unit is usally located in the same side the oil filter is and this is because the oil filter is connected to the oil pump so there should be one little single wire in that area

Use a deep well socket and extension on your ratchet. I don't remember the size of socket, but you can size it up with the replacement part. Install the new part by hand first and snug it down with the ratchet. Be careful not to crank it down too tight. Hope this helps.
