I believe you have to put in place of the oil pressure swtich that is already on the block of the engine to determine low oil pressure.

Can oil pressure sender cause a major oil leak if sender is bad

Hi Jerell:
Short answer - YES
Fortunately, it is usually easy to find the source of oil leaks. clean it up, run it for a short time, look for the fresh oil leak.

Lots of older vehicles had a vinyl tube that went from the engine block to an oil pressure guage. A hole in the tube or a bad fitting connection would cause the loss of a large amount of oil.

Electronic senders could still be the source location for an oil leak if the internals had failed. Not common, but possible.

How can I check oil pressure guage is there a sensor or vacuume line that could of worked loose where would it be located at

Location of oil pressure sender unit depends on what engine you have. There should be one wire going to sender, and if it has come off, gauge will read zero. 4.0 inline 6 has sender low on passenger side of engine, above the starter.

How does someone install manual oil pressure gauge on 2006 chevy 2500 with 6.0L Vortex

where the oil pressure sender unit is on the block install a "t" fitting . Place the electrical unit in one side and a brass fitting in the other . Run the copper line from the gauge through the firewall to the "T" piece and connect up (if you are using a plastic tube the do not waste your time as the plastic fails -cracks ,slips. or melts causing engine failure) Position the gauge and connect the copper line to the gauge . run engine and check for oil leaks.

Mazda6 ac recharge valves

the correct one should be smaller, and your recharge hose should be only able to connect to it. the smaller fitting is the low side, and the larger fitting is the high side. recharge only to the low side. the high side is used by technicians with elaborate ac manifold guages to monitor success. these guage kits can be bought at harbor freight for about 55 dollars,and give a better recharge,as you can regulate pressure as not to overfill, which lessens the cooling

My oil pressure guage spiked to 80 on my 06 Chevy Silverado 1500 why did this happen and how do I fix it?

it is either the oil sender or the cluster gone out. i have seen both with the factory scan tool you can do a gauge sweep test to see if gauges are functioning correctly. the oil sender would be the cheapest thing to try. it is located at back of engine in valley by firewall

Oil pressure low light came on after oil yesterday.

Make sure your oil filter is not leaking & that your drain plug is not loose. Also there is an oil sender switch near the oil filter. Make sure the wire is connecting good. If this fails you may have to replace the oil sender switch or put another oil pressure guage on it to ascertain the actual oil pressure. Make sure you have enough of the proper weight oil in the car i.e. 5W30. Good luck!

When my truck gets real hot the oil preasure guage starts bouncing when truck idles as soon as truck is put into park or is reved up a bit it stops bouncing

You may have a Faulty Oil Pressure Sender.
Here are some reason why your guage is bouncing:
  • Corrosion or faulty electrical connections
  • If the oil pressure gauge is pegged low after the engine is running, or is pegged high after the engine is running, or if there is intermittent illumination of an oil pressure indicator light, the sender could be faulty
You can find the oil sensor on the left hand side near the Oil Filter, as long as you don't hear your lifters ticking and making lots of noise. it's not your oil pump failing. 
Good luck and hope this helps
