Location of oil sending unit on 1990 ranger 2.9


Here's a link to your oil pressure switch,here's the part.As you can see there are 2 types,one for light and one for gauge.
  • When the oil pressure is either high or low it will either turn the oil light "on" in the dash or move the gauge to the extremes
  • Undetected high or low oil pressure can result in internal engine damage and/or gasket leakage

1998 Malibu 2.4 Litre 4cyl. oil leak under exhaust manifold.Are there any sending units attached to the engine block?


Yes you have an oil pressure sending unit (switch) located under the manifold. They are known for going bad and leaking. Eventually it will prevent truck from running. When it stops sensing oil pressure due to the leak the vehicles fuel system will shut off. Its a saftey featur to keep you from blowing the motoe if a pump goes bad or you run outta oil

I keep losing oil pressure in my 2004 f150 with a 4.6 litre. I have changed the filter and oil. What is the chance that the oil pump is bad? If so is it located inside the oil pan? Can I change the pump...


Ok 3 questions to answer:

1 yes the pump could be bad, but it is not likely.
2 yes it is in the oil pan.
3 yes you can change it without pulling the engine, though it is not easy.

Most common problem for your oil pressure reading to be going away, is the oil pressure sending unit(sensor) it is located next to the oil filter, check and replace if neccessary this sensor first and see if your oil pressure returns to normal. If not then you may have a pump problem. Hope this helps, let me know.

Could be. Check the wiring at the oil pressure sending unit. If the wiring is good, replace the sensor. It is located Under hood, passenger side, rear engine area, above oil filter, mounted on lower timing cover. Curtorsey: Auto Zone.

Oil pressure switch


Pressure switch is usually located near the oil filter and generally has two wires on it. Best way to check it is by putting a manual oil pressure gauge in it's place and reading actual oil pressure. If your symptoms are no oil pressure reading or abnormal readings, with no tapping noises (or worse) from engine then it likely is the switch. Most require a special socket to remove but the sending units are not terribly expensive.
