Question about 2001 Toyota RAV4
Oil light keeps flickering on the dash board and I wanted to check the oil sender unit - but I have no idea where to look? Checked by the oil filter and did not see any wires by that.
Look on the rear of the head near the end of the camshaft area, or close to the distributor cap area repost findings also check with parts store or enter vehicleinfo in search engine and follow specific searches..good luck..

these cars have problems with bad oil pressure warning switches you may have someone put an oil pressure gauge on the car and make sure your pressure is within spec and go ahead and change the sender if it checks out please rate -jeff

It has to be either burning it or you have a leak. If you changed the oil and overfilled it a gasket may have blown. try pouring a can of engine stop leak. Maybe it will help.

SOURCE: oil filter
On the V6, the filter is located on the bottom front of the engine on the passenger side. It is silver and looks like an oil filter cap wrench. It is not the traditional oil filter where you replace the entire unit. With this type you remove the cap, drain the oil, and replace the paper filter element and 2 gaskets.
to get the cap off use a standard 65mm-67mm filter wrench "end cap" that you stick on your 3/8" drive ratchet like this one..

in the front? They are in the most god awful tightest place to get to. its a 24mm drain plug and you cant fit anything in there, very difficult. I can show instruction, but I hope you have a lift.
