Hello, depending on which sender you have there will either be a spot towards the end that screws in to put a wrench on or if you have the round style I just use a pair of channel locks to remove it. I hope this helps.

96 deVille. Think the oil pressure sending unit is leaking. How do you remove. Mine is located above the AC pressure lines and I can't reach.


Hello: The oil pressure sending unit is located on the oil filter adapter, which is behind the lower front engine mount. It is best to get a deep oil pressure socket to do the task. Check with Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly, or NAPA for the socket.

Low engine oil pressure on a 1997 cadillac catera. I suspect the sending unit. Would like to check with a manual gauge. Where to tap in to engine oil pressure?


in order to check the oil pressure, you have to remove the oil sending unit, then screw in the adapter of the oil pressure gage, and then remove the start relay or fuel pump relay from the fuse and relay box, under the hood on the drivers side, and then crank the engine over 3-4 turns, and then record the oil pressure, and then disconnect the oil pressure gage, and then re install the oil sending unit, replace the start relay or fuel pump relay, and then start up the car, and check the oil sending unit , to make sure it is not leaking, if your oil pressure checks out within the specs, then you are fine, if it gives you a low reading, then you could have a bad oil sending unit , or a oil pump going bad on you. i would replace the sending unit first, then see what the gage shows.

Where is the oil pressure sending unit?


The oil pressure sending unit is located on the engine block, passenger side by the Distributor. Good luck and make sure you get the right sending unit, there is the simple unit that only turns on a low oil pressure light and the other will send signals to the oil pressure gauge.

No oil pressure


It could be the sending unit,but it could also be the high pressure bypass on the oil pump itself,the sending unit will be on the side of the motor usually close to the oil filter.
