    Is this unit one that switches the oil pressure light on/off, or for a oil pressure guage?

It's on the engine, right next to the starter, it has one wire going to it. You don't need to drain the oil. If the light is coming on, you may have bad seals in the oil pan, a fairly common problem, but replacing the switch is a good fisrt step.

The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

Hi there;

Your looking foer the oil pressure sensor on the 2004 8.1L.
You will find it located directly behind the EGR valve threaded into the block just to the drivers side of the center bolt for the transmission to block connection.

Lose of oil pressure

This is not good .It could be a bad connection to the gauge or an oil pressure sending unit .
If it comes up to pressure and you have oil in it check the oil level if its good in general I would say its the oil pressure sending unit or the gauge maybe electrical connection.

Where do I find oil sending unit on a 2001 BMW 740il E 38.. My oil pressure i reading low pressure. But its full of oil..

Full oil does not mean that you have oil pressure.
The sending unit is located right by the oil filter mount.
It is very possible that you have a bad sending unit, gauge, or actually do have low oil to have pressure checked by a good mechanic

No oil pressure

either replace oil sending unit or get a manual oil pressure gauge and screw in to oil sending unit port and visually check with engine running to see if or what the actual pressure is. If 0 pressure registers then bad oil pump. but if good pressure, then you have a bad oil sending unit. also change oil filter.

The oil pressure keeps going down and sets off the check guages light . This happens when i stop or slow down.

In this situation either you have low oil pressure or the oil pressure sending unit is faulty. I typically remove the oil pressure sensing unit and install a mechanical pressure gauge to verify actual oil pressure. If that checks out good then I replace the sensor. Oil in the connector for the sending unit is a good indicator that it is faulty.

Check gauge light is on and oil pressure gauge at zero. Oil at full on stick?

Sounds like you have a bad oil pressure sending unit, the oil pressure sending unit controls your oil pressure gauge, what I would do is remove the oil pressure sender and hook a manual oil pressure gauge up to your engine and verify you have sufficient oil pressure, if you have good oil pressure on your gauge then replace the sending unit, if you have a low reading on the gauge stop your engine immediatly and start looking at a potenial problem with your oil pump or lubricating system within the engine....

First check your oil level if it is full take the oil sending unit out and install a pressure gauge to check you oil pressure.Compare your readings to the correct specs for that vehicle.If the pressure is good and the plug that connects to the sending unit has one wire only,do as follows.Take the plug loose from the sending unit,turn the key on and take a paper clip or other item and ground the wire to a good engine ground.If the light illuminates while it is grounded,the circuit and the light itself are good.Do not do this test if there is more than one wire going to the plug!!!I You could just replace the sending unit if you dont wont to test everything..The sending unit is cheap...Good Luck...
