Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove

SOURCE: Oil sensor
The oil light on your car has nothing to do with oil level in the crankcase but rather oil pressure. The oil pressure switch/sensor is located on the rear of the engine block above the right axle I believe. Unless you have engine noise or suspect low oil pressure, I'd replace it but you could check oil pressure for peace of mind with an pressure gauge if you wish. You may need a special socket to replace it.

This is probably an oil pressure sensor problem. Randomly going from 0 to over 130 is means the sensor is putting out out of range signals. Mine would even read --- at times. I told the mechanic to not spend any time troubleshooting just change the sensor. $121 including parts, labor and tax. The gage should read about 70 psi plus or minus several psi, and move up a PSI or two as you rev up the engine. It took him about 10 minutes to change it, once he got the part. There would have been a diagnostic charge of about $50, had I not been sure.

I would guess your oil pump is going out causing it to loose oil pressure. If you continue to drive your car in this condition it will most likely ruin the engine. If it is not your oil pump it is something else causing you to loose oil pressure and I would have it looked at soon.

This could be caused by a faulty oil sending unit, wich is located on the intake manifold or near it
