SOURCE: need help with oil pressure sending unit...maybe

You got it, Common for the plastic top where the wire leads connect to crack. This will cause the oil to leak and at worst, what you have indicated happening on your Blazer. Note; when installing the new sensor, do not use any Teflon tape on the threads. The sensor is tapered and works best to have a good ground, so just tighten it enough to keep the oil from leaking. Good luck friend and make sure you pick up the right oil sending unit sensor. One is for just a light to activate and the other is the one you need to be able to give you a oil pressure reading. Best to go at a Dealer for this part with your VIN number.

Sounds like a clogged oil pressure sending unit...located by the oil filter...it has a wire connector plug in...you need a special socket to remove, and replace...Your parts store can show you the part before you buy it...to help you find it.....

Where is the oil sending unit located on a 2000 Cavalier


That will be on the backside of the motor. Check with your local autoparts store for a sending unit socket, because they are different from a regular socket.

How do i replace the oil pressure sending unit on 2000 jeep cherokee sport


Depending on the engine size...I'd say you have to 4.0L...The sending unit should be on the passenger size of the engine close to the oil filter...these need to be removed and installed via a special socket made specifically for the sending unit to avoid damage, but they just unscrew from the block and screw the new one in. Be sure to apply some nylon tape to the threads if the new sender does not already have any kind of thread sealant

Oil pressure gauge reads 80 lbs display at 130


If they haven't moved it it should be behind the back of the intake manifold. Only other place I'd look is near the oil filter. You can change it. There is a special socket called an oil pressure sending unit socket, They come in a couple of different sizes. If unit is the "bell" type, you can use a wrench on it.

Pontiac Bonneville(2000) oil pressure sending unit


The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

5.3 L Yukon XL oil pressure problems


Well first the GM oil pressure sending units are notorious for false readings, so what you must do is remove the oil pressure sending unit and plug in a test mechanical gage to verify the engine has acceptable oil pressure, after you are certain the pressure is ok replace the sending unit, it requires a special socket to remove it, the socket is about $5.00 USD. There is a deep socket and a shallow, so check the sending unit for the correct socket fit.
