You have an oil leak. From where is the question. On most Dodge products, the oil pressure sensor is behind the oil filter. Petroleum products are solvents, however mild. This affects gaskets, wires, hoses, you name it. Have someone check the wires on the oil pressure sensor. Also see if it is screwed in tight. Neons are buzzy little engines and tend to have minor stuff wiggle loose from time to time. There is the possibility of having a "Double Gasket" on the oil filter which would cause the oil to leak and pressure to drop at lower RPMs. If all of that checks out, then you might need a new oil pump.

I'm trying to locate the oil sending unit on a 2001 plymouth neon

How many miles on the car? I recommend hooking up a direct reading oil pressure guage. Oil level is not the only factor on oil pressure. As an engine ages, clearances and bearings wear and the pressure falls. Using too thin oil can result in low pressure.

My 2001 plymouth neon wants to cut off and the check engine light and oil pressure light comes on when I stop! When I take off it goes out why? This only happens when I stop. Otherwise it runs good! Its...

better have a shop check it out. If you have approx 90k miles on that car and the timing belt has not been replaced, replace it ASAP. if it breaks, the valves will be bent and th ecar will not be worth fixing. if it has been replaced before, then replace it at another 90k be sure to replace the water pump and tensioner at every timing belt replacement.
