You must be looking at a different sensor as the oxygen sensor is mounted in the exhaust system and wouldn't be exposed to the oil in the engine. The oil pressure sensor is likely what you see, it is not uncommon at all for these to fail internally and leak oil to the outside of the engine. Sometimes you need a special socket to change them. Both the sensor and the socket should be available at any auto parts store.

I have a 2000 pontiac montana minivan The low pressure light is on. before that. the change oil light had been on for some time and i did not change the oil

Unfortunately, it sounds like your problem is one of the following, either:

A) A weak or failing oil pump which should be replaced immediately to avoid serious engine damage.


B) A bad oil pressure sensor.

I would recommend having the vehicles electronic codes read, AutoZone will do this for free if you ask them. This should help you determine if the sensor is the problem or the pump.

What are the actual codes ?
Sounds like a problem with the crank and cam sensors.
And yes you could have a vac leak but that would not set sensor codes.

My car is leaking oil like crazzy. Could it be the Pontiac Firebird Oil Pressure Gauge Sensor ??

It could be any nut or bolt or gasket or fitting on the entire engine. You have to look. We can't see it with a keyboard.

Leaking A LOT of oil - looks like from on top of the filter. It doesn't seem like the lifters are getting oil because they are loud

It could be the oil pressure sensor for the oil light or guage.I have seen this before after age and heat plus vibration could cause it to crack and leak a lot of oil like you describe.Get it fixed asap.It should be easy to unscrew with a wrench or large socket .Buy the new sensor first though so you can replace it once you get the old one out.It leaks alot because of oil pressure from the oilpump pressurizes the rest of the engine bearings.It could break altogether and pump all your oil out and ruin your engine.
