DO YOU MEAN THE OIL LIFE MONITOR SYSTEM WHICH IS IN MOST NEWER CARS? IF SO THE EASY EXPLANATION IS IT IN THE ENGINE COMPUTER. IT DOES A CALCULATION OF THE ENGINE TEMP AND RPM TO DETERMINE THE ENGINE OIL LIFE EXPECTANCY. IT IS NOT ADVISABLE TO USE THE SYSTEM TO DO OIL CHANGES BY AS IT CAN BE DECEIVING. THE LITTLE OLD LADY GOING TO CHURCH AND THE STORE WILL HAVE A GREATER OIL LIFE EXPECTANCY THAN SAY JUNIOR WHO GOES AS FAST AS HE CAN TO THE NEXT STOP LIGHT.

How to Replace the Oil Pressure Sensor on a Ford F-150?


If there is oil in the car but if not getting detected or if there is a oil leak then its time to replace oil pressure sensor.
1) The oil pressure sensor is located under the hood on the driver side of the engine.
2) You will see oil pressure sensor next to the oil filter.
3) The oil pressure sensor is connected by a connector cable. Remove the connector cable and remove the sensor from the harness with your hands carefully.
4) The sensor is screwed in the engine blocks. Rotate the sensor screw anti clock wise to take it out.
5) Now before removing the old oil pressure sensor, please take note of the position in which it is placed. So while inserting new sensor there is no problem about placing the new sensor.
6) Insert the new sensor carefully and connect the connector cable to the proper position.
7) And reverse/refit all the wires / parts which you removed while replacing the old Oil pressure sensor.

This will help. Thanks

2003 Dodge Neon Check Oil light wont go off. Car has oil-full, and just put in new Sensor.


Do you mean the oil level sensor was replaced, or do you mean the oil pressure sending unit was replaced?
If it was the oil pressure sensor was replaced, then I would look into an oil pump going bad, not supplying enough pressure to the oil pressure sensor. This can be tested by putting an oil pressure gauge into where the oil pressure sensor normally goes, bypassing the circuitry that leads to the dash light for the oil pressure.

If it was the oil level sensor, then check for bad wiring.

We are trying to find out if my 1997 buick le sabre has an oil pan sensor or oil pressure sensor and where it is located at so that we can change out the oil pan


all car well have a oil pressure sensor, the oil pressure sensor is what lets you know, you have good oil pressure, if light comes on low oil pressure, need to turn off engine before major engine damage occurs, the oil pressure switch will be next to the oil filter, screw into the engine block, your car also has a oil pan sensor, called oil level sensor, that one screw into the side of the oil pan, it let you know when your some what low on oil.
