If its a wiring or sensor issue you'll have a code up or the check engine light will be on. I'd start by getting an oil change and a good oil filter (not a Fram). Thinner oil should help lower the pressure. You should be alright if your pressure is under 60.

I have bought a 2001 arnage and a oil pressure problem has arisen but engine is fine , if left running from cold oil pressure is fine then as it warms up oil light comes on and oil pressure gauge dro

The Arnage uses a 4-20 loop sensor. It is positioned as previously described but is not easy to get to. Unlike an oil switch it costs around 450 GBP . Part number is 07V965515

Tying to find crank sensor for 2002 Cadillac Seville std 4.6 liter

This answer covers 1999-2005 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado & Seville.
Example Engine:
2002 Cadillac Seville STS 4.6L SFI DOHC HO 8cyl.

This engine has (2) Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensors: the Upper sensor is CKP sensor B, and the lower sensor is CKP sensor A (this is included for the OBD-II DTC codes - P0385 references Sensor B = upper CKP sensor, whereas P0335 references the lower CKP sensor (sensor A)).

Both crankshaft position sensors are located in the front of the engine just above the oil filter adapter. To access both CKP sensors, jack up vehicle on the passenger side, remove the oil filter, and the oil filter adapter, including the Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch. See illustration.
The ARROW points toward Front of Car.
1. Upper Crankshaft Position Sensor (B).
2. Lower Crankshaft Position Sensor (A)
3. Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch
4. Engine Oil Level switch
The Oil Filter is the can-type object below the oil filter adapter, which includes the EOP switch. Recommend: remove oil filter with an oil filter socket/strap wrench, since it's close to the oil pan.

First loosen the hight pressure hose at the lower end. Drain the fluid into an oil pan. Remove the upper fitting. Take out the hose and replace. Refill with new P.S. fluid and dispose the old at a recycler.

I need to know where is the oil presure switch of a 2003 ford windstar 3.8l

On a 1996 3.8 L Should be under the power steering on the block. Looking at the pulleys on the right side just above the oil pan. This would involve removing the pwr steering punp and hoses.

I don't know if a 2003 is different.. You could inspect the area visually to check it.

To get to replace it...
96 - 98 windstar 3.8 oil pressure switch is located under power steering pump. Remove serpentine belt and alternator. Remove PS pump pulley with special puller to get access to PS pump bolts. Drain PS pump and remove PS hoses. Remove PS pump.

Oil light stay on dim loads of oil dose not loose any 70k only

try a new oil sender switch, try to check the pressure with a gauge

1995 Jaguar XJ6 oil pressure gauge

This is OK. Oil pressure is always higher when the engine is cold.

As an engine accumulates miles the pressure will start to drop due to bearing clearances increasing.

If this just started to happen you may want to replace the oil filter and or oil pressure sending unit.

Oil plug came out didn't realize no oil pressure t

the oil is there to cool and lubricate the crank ( bottom end) and the cam shaft and valves (top end) the most likely out come is that you have (cooked) the engine, check to see if when you try to start dose the engine turn? if it dose then it could be the oil temp switch will need to be replaced. if the engine DOSENT turn then you have most probably welded the pistons to the block. seized the crank shaft or warped the head (head gasket) i hope this helps

My v.w glof glow light dose not come on?

Most likely ignition switch has gone bad.  Don't need to worry about oil pressure light IF the motor is not running, but IF it IS running, shut down motor immediately until oil pressure can be verified with an external gauge.
good luck
