You might try a search on youtube for a video - if the switch is not above the oil filter it may be at the back of the intake manifold on top of the engine. They make a special socket for removal or you may be able to use vise-grip pliers.

SOURCE: oil filter location, 05 Malibu, 4 cyl, 2.2L

u mean where do you get the part or where is it on the engine? 1st use the AC Delco filter from GM, the filter is located at rear bottom of engine, you may need a filter wrench to remove it, these are avail from any parts store.

SOURCE: low oil pressure 93 GMC P/U w/350 motor w/205,000 miles gauge

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

1992 Silverado K1500 Blazer pissing out oil around oil filter adapter...Want my truck back please help


Hoses going to filter adapter are bad about leaking, and factory parts are expensive. If you carefully cut the crimp fittings off, you can use oil remote cooler type hose and clamps to fix it.

Changed intake manifold gaskets, and while doing so, spilled a bit of coolant that was left in the intake in with the oil. Changed the oil before I even started my truck, and since then, I will have oil...


It sounds like oil pressure switch is bad. You said you changed? To clarify, your oil pressure switch is also a safety item that shuts down ignition when oil pressure drops. Try an oil pressure gauge (hand held) to relieve your nerves about engine seizure. Make sure you're not getting to much fuel in engine also, that will dilute oil to a thin viscosity and show low oil press.

Fuel pump not staying on 1993 k1500 350


Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

Oil leaks from the oil filter adapter


If it is not the suggested gasket that is leaking then it is the oil pressure switch located exactly above the oil filter adapter. The black plastic housing could have developed a crack and oil will ooze downward and drip off the bottom of the adapter. I had this problem and changing the oil pressure switch took care of it.
