2001 pontiac sunfire 2.2L OHV 4 Cylinder SFI engine locked up due to not enough oil. Saying I need a new motor.

You don't need a new engine, you can replace the crank, cam, main and journal bearings, have the block bored, get over sized rings and all the associated seals etc. Oh wait you need a new engine

I've got a 2001 pontiac sunfire and I can't get the performance it once had. The car accelerates slow. I've replaced the air filter, oil and oil filter, transmission fluid, fuel filter, exhaust, and used...

Is your catylitic converter blocking up? It may be causing the problem. Too much back pressure will cause poor performance & poor acceleration. It may be time to change it. Good luck!

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 ford taurus 3.0 liter engine located? glenn

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.
