SOURCE: Pontiac Bonneville(2000) oil pressure sending unit

The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

Hi there;

Your looking foer the oil pressure sensor on the 2004 8.1L.
You will find it located directly behind the EGR valve threaded into the block just to the drivers side of the center bolt for the transmission to block connection.

Thanks
Farrout!

SOURCE: Exactly where is oil pressure sending unit located

if you have the 5.2 V8 its located in the rear of the engine near the dist cap area you can see it if you look in that area , if 4.0 6 cyl its located on the side of the engine block near the oil filter area. It has two wires going to it and screws into the block. It's made mainly of plastic and if broken can allow oil under pressure to spew out and give you thoughts of a blown rear main seal due to the amount of oil all over the underside.

On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

Oil pressure gauge reads zero


THE SENDING UNIT WILL BE LOCATED DOWN BY THE OIL FILTER. YOU PROBABLY HAVE AN ELECTRIC PRESSURE SENSOR. THERE WILL BE ONE WIRE CONNECTED TO IT. THE OIL PRESSURE IS USUALLY BY THE OIL FILTER AS THIS IS WHERE THE PRESSURE IS GENERATED FROM THE OIL PUMP. THEY CAN BE HARD TO ACCESS ON SOME ENGINES DUE TO LACK OF SPACE. HERE IS ANOTHER TIP. INVEST IN AN OIL PRESSURE SENSOR SOCKET. THEY ARE A SPECIALTY TOOL AND CAN SAVE YOU SOME TIME IF YOU ARE NOT MECHANICALLY INCLINED. GOOD LUCK

make sure the oil is full. start engine with hood up stand outside of truck and lisen for any knocking or irregular noise. if noise is heard then shut truck off and you will probabley need a new oil pump but if no noise is heard try changing the oil sending unit. the oil sending unit is the switch that tells the gage what pressure to read. its located near rear of engine passenger side, should be a single wire connector black in color. a easy way to look for it is to buy the switch then open the hood and look for it using the new one as a guide
