How to determine if there is an oil pressure switch in 1999 vw jetta

I have a 99 Jetta with a hole in the oil pan. I'm being told that I need to know whether or not the car has an oil pressure switch in order to get the correct replacement oil pan. Where do I look to determine whether the car has the OPS?

I think they possibly mean an oil level sender because that mounts in the side of the oil pan. It just a float switch, puts a light up on the dash idiot lights to tell you to put more oil in. Look up both sides of the oil pan, it will be a round bolt in affair about the diameter of an orange.
If you can't see one then it's the model without the oil level sensor.

SOURCE: Valve job for 2000 VW Jetta GL w/105,000 miles

is he sure it isn't the rings are worn also?  If so don't waste money on a valve job, when you really need a rebuilt motor.  Had you changed the oil more you wouldn't need this repair at this time.  Good uck as his price is decent.  Ask him the price for a long block?

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta 1.8T random oil pressure warnings

Replace oil pump and use the bigger filter that Vw tells you to. These 1.8's have some oiling problems due to the amount of oil they hold and they want you to use synthetic oil in them.

SOURCE: 1999 vw jetta vr6 abs light stays on, but brakes work fine

the only way you will find this out is to have a diagnostic machine plugged in and the fault memory read to check what fault is logged, it could be anything from a ABS wheel speed sensor to a control module fault, to save money in the long run i would advise you get the fault memory read first. hope this helps

Could be a faulty pressure switch. But which engine do you have? The 1.8T is notorious for getting sludge build-up on the oil pan, thus restricting the oil pump pick-up screen.

Your Jetta 2 modulator is not compatible with the Jetta 3 electronics, especially when it comes to the coil as they give different stokes of spark to the distributor. Oil switch must have a pressure leak. Replace the switch as a small leak of pressure can cause the sensor buzzer to sound. The modulator have no influence on the oil pressure switch.
