SOURCE: Does anyone know how to reset the

Turn the key ahead to run mode, without cranking and push gas pedal to floor and back up 3 times within 5 sec, this should reset the oil change light. as for the tire pressure light there are a couple of procedures, but ensure first that the pressures are all above 28 psi, and are the same. however, without the use of a tpms tool to communicate with the tire monitor sensors it may not reset. did you have any tires changed over, or rotated? if so the use of the tpms tool is much easier to reset the light. Probably better off bringing to a tire or mechanical shop that deals with it regularly. It is actually not that difficult, but the tool will allow you to tell if a sensor is faulty, or has a weak battery, etc.. hope this helps

How to replace oil pressure switch 1999 pontiac bonneville


it is a long sensor with a special fitting, you can get the oil sending unit socket at your local parts store that attaches to a ratchet, it is a little tricky to reach, you have to try different size extensions to get the best reach.
it just turns counter clockwise to remove and clockwise to tighten.

Need to change the oil pressure sensor. Does it


If you have a gauge, the sender usually has a square between the "bell" and the threads. You can use an open end wrench there and just remove the unit. If you have a light, then yes there are a few different sized sockets made just for sender removal. Many aftermarket sending units have normal wrench pattern instead of the socket size to make them more user friendly.
You can usually get that type out using a pair of slip joint (waterpump) pliers, but if it does not come out using reasonable but not excessive force, get the socket. (if you distort or crush it the socket won't fit)
I have never heard of the coil wire thing and really see no benefit in doing that.
i do recommend that you put one wrap of teflon tape around the threads to prevent seepage and prevent binding in future removal. Don't go below the second thread though so it doesn't come loose and cover the orifice.

Leaking A LOT of oil - looks like from on top of the filter. It doesn't seem like the lifters are getting oil because they are loud


It could be the oil pressure sensor for the oil light or guage.I have seen this before after age and heat plus vibration could cause it to crack and leak a lot of oil like you describe.Get it fixed asap.It should be easy to unscrew with a wrench or large socket .Buy the new sensor first though so you can replace it once you get the old one out.It leaks alot because of oil pressure from the oilpump pressurizes the rest of the engine bearings.It could break altogether and pump all your oil out and ruin your engine.
