I need to replace the oil sending unit on my 2008 Pontiac G6 as it is leaking oil, but am having trouble determining the right part #. Is there an oil sending switch AND a separate oil sending unit?

there should be a sender unit with one wire attached that is connected to the oil light or gauge and there possible is a oil pressure sensor switch with 2 or more wires attached that reports to the ECM unit that shuts the motor down when the oil pressure is insufficient
take it to a service center and have it identified

Oil Gauge Marking Way Past 80

Check your dipstick for antifreeze in the oil. You mad need to replace the oil pressure sensor/sending unit. If there's no antifreeze in engine oil, replace sending unit. Should be a round silver sending unit at the left rear place on the intake with a plastic black wiring connector with 2-3 wires going into it.

Oil sending unit

Hi Steve,

You may or may not have an issue with the wire, as per your description...
BUT, most issues are the sending unit. They are replaced diagnostically. You need a special socket to replace it, so buy one at the parts store. This need not be a dealer item. anyways, 99% of the time the sender fails.

I recently had my angle gear ( also called transfer case) replaced in my 2004 volvo s60. After I picked up the car, the work seemed o.k., but them my stop engine light came on saying that I had no oil...

Well my best guess would be that in the process of repairing the angle gear they may have bumped and broke your oil sending unit. The angle gear has nothing to do with oil pressure but it is a big bulky part and a oil sending unit could be broke pretty easy while installing something like that. I would take it back to them and have then look at it to see if its broke and a good shop would fix it for free since they broke it.

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.

Volvo 850 oil pressure sending unit

It's on the engine, right next to the starter, it has one wire going to it. You don't need to drain the oil. If the light is coming on, you may have bad seals in the oil pan, a fairly common problem, but replacing the switch is a good fisrt step.

Thanks! and another question?

With the tranny flush, yes. It's possible that they may have knocked the connection loose or broke it at the sending unit. The unit is usually located on the side near the bottom ot the tranny. With the oil change I'm going to say no. The oil sending unit is generally located on the driver side, center of the engine block near or under the exhaust manifold, or on the front of the block towards the top. Unless they moved them on me, it shouldn't be anywhere close to the drain plug on the oil pan, and there no way that they should get near the oil sending unit when changing the oil, unless the sending unit is near the oil filter, and GMC generally doesn't put the two near each other for this reason. Just thought of something. Are the gages individually replaceable, or are they all built into one display unit?
