Where is map sensor on 2000 oldsmobile silhouette

Keep in mind that OBD Codes-- do not tell you parts
need to be replaced,so when you do & it fixes nothing,
you were told

The ONLY PARTS that get replaced-- are ones that are component
tested-- & fail a test --AND-- were the cause of the problem

Google the question for the location

That is all we can do

Low engine oil light on after fresh oil change

I am going to assume you have checked the oil level to make sure the engine has enough oil.
If it really is a warning light for low oil it could be that the shop knocked the wire off the sensor.
If it is the warning light for low oil pressure, it could be the sensor or you could really have low oil pressure and still have plenty of oil.

2000 oldsmobile silhouette, just changed thermostat, still running hot, coolant fans not coming on, fuses in box okay! Is there a relay somewhere else that I need to have checked ?

Yes, there are 3 cooling fan relays. A signal is sent to the PCM from the temp sensor to kick them on. Probably a bad temerature sensor causing the fan not to kick on, but you can swap relays to see if it does first.

My 2000 Olds Silhouette with 150k also had its low oil pressure light come on and is dinging. Any ideas of extent of problem and solutions.

Quite a few of these vans had issues with the instrument panel cluster causing this problem. There is an updated program to recalibrate the cluster to not set the low oil pressure light on. Go to a GM dealer and have them reprogram the IPC.

Oil pressure gage allways says high

You more than likely have a bad oil sending unit.The best way to find out is to remove the unit and check the oil press.with a pressure gauge but if you don`t have one then you can just replace it.Not knowing what engine you have the 3.1 or the 3.8 the sending unit is located by the oil filter or oil filter adapter.Hope this helps.Good luck.
