Question about 1996 Dodge Neon

Oil pouring out of a sensor on a 1996 dodge neon

There is a sensor (black with a nut on it), the sensor has fine threads and it goes into the engine block. It is located off to the left below the frost plug(frost plug is between the engine and the firewall), and off to the left of that is the transmission. There is oil pouring out of this but I don't know what the part is. I need to know what this part is in order to make the repair.
I looked in the Hanes Book and on page 10.18 Suport Bracket.In the diagram were it says trans axle is were the sensor is, but it doesn't talk about it at all.
I wouls appreciate any help that you could give me.

    I'm not sure what else I can say about were it is, as it is my sons car and he is stranded about 150km from anything at this moment. I have cell communication with him. If I know what it is that he needs I can pay to have the part delivered to him.

To "notso_grumpy", it is definitely the oil pressure sending unit. Your son could always thread in the appropriate size and thread bolt and limp to the nearest auto parts store.

To "emissionwiz", I have seen some of your other solutions posted under "clarification request". If you have ever selected clarification request and not selected "solution" on the next message, the site is posting to clarification as a default setting.

Chrysler - Dodge neon 1996 has fuel and maybe sensor issues

Does the light work when you first turn the key? Does it come on? Check your ignition wires for arching also make sure you don't have a pool of oil in the spark plug tubes.
