The oil sending unit monitors the oil pressure in the engine. If the unit went bad it wold have ether been leaking oil or it was sending the wrong reading to the car's electronic control module. If the readings are to low indicating a problem with the oil pressure the engine may shut down till the issues has been addressed. I hope this helps, keep me posted be glad to help.

You need to find out why the low oil pressure light is on. Either you are low of oil, the oil pump is not working properly, or the oil pressure sending unit is defective. Fix the problem and the light will go out. Do NOT start this engine until you find the cause of this. Low oil pressure will destroy this engine.

In my experience with neon's the sending unit is most likely not the problem. I feel that you will find that the oil pressure is actually low and that the oil pump is going out. If you change the sending unit and it doesn't change then you will know for sure. The sending unit is located on the side of the block near the oil filter. It has one wire and simply unscrews and the new one screws back in and re-attach the wire. Hope this helps. Good luck.

IT CAN BE ANY OF THE ABOVE AND ALSO A DEFECTUVE OIL PRESSURE SENDER ON THE ENGINE, HAVE THE OIL PRESS TESTED WITH A MECHANICAL TEST GAUGE BY A SHOP, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE SENDER FOR THE OIL PRESS LIGHT.
