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.

Where is the location of the oil pressure sender on a 2014 awd Chevy Equinox?


The AWD Equinox has two model selections (LS & LT) and two 2.4L engine options (K2.4L FI DOHC & the K2.4L Flex Fuel DOHC.)

Information on the Equinox engines oil pressure senders location is difficult to find on line so all I can offer in the way of help is to say that It will be on the engine block connected to the ECM (engine Control Module) with a single TN/BK (Tan/Black) wire lead.

The Oil Pressure Sender is a distinct looking unit that is sold by Autozone and they provide pictures of the various makes which should help you identify the units location on your engine block.

3800. Where is the oil pressure sending unit located?


I'm not familiar with your vehicle. However, an oil pressure sender unit is usually located on the block, below the cylinder head.

it's more often than not a screw - in unit which may have a brass appearance and have 1 or more electrical wires coming from it.

Here is a link which will show you generic images of sender units:

They are -usually - just screw-in items. They are not difficult to change.

How can I check oil pressure guage is there a sensor or vacuume line that could of worked loose where would it be located at


Location of oil pressure sender unit depends on what engine you have. There should be one wire going to sender, and if it has come off, gauge will read zero. 4.0 inline 6 has sender low on passenger side of engine, above the starter.

Oil pressure sender


Oil Pressure Sending Units are generally located somewhere around the oil filter, and screw directly into the engine block. Most have a one wire connector, and require a special socket to remove and install. Most look like a bolt with a very large head and a single blade connector on top.

How do I get to the oil sending unit


The oil pressure sender is a sensor connected to your engine block. It has two wires connected to it and one is directly linked to the oil pressure gauge located on your dashboard. The sender is typically located at the front of your engine block near the fuel filter and close to the intake manifold. Applications vary, so be sure to check your owner's manual to confirm its actual location. You should have easy access to it from the front of the engine block, but you may still need to remove some parts or components to reach and replace it like the fuel filter. You'll need to detach the two wires connected to the outside, unscrew the sender from its housing, clean the gunk out of the threads in the housing, pre-seed the threads of the new sender with a light film of oil, and then screw the new oil pressure sender back into the housing. The final steps include re-attaching the two wires and any removed components like the fuel filter.
