It should be on the left side of the engine(front of car) wiring runs under and around oil pan maybe wires are torn or pulled out of connector.oil sending unit is usually right in the same area of oil filter.

Why low pressure oil

I have had this same issue. I my case the oil pressure sending units continued to fail. After replacing them 3 times I gave up and just let it go. You need to be sure it really IS a sending unit issue and not really low oil pressure however.

My 1999 3.4l v6 gauge says its overheating but my overheat light dont come on or my fans?

A mechanic would use the coolant sensor for the engine computer to verify what the gauge is saying. The sending unit for the gauge could be faulty. The resistance in the sending unit can be checked too.

Low oil pressure it has full oil and everything do you thing it is the oil pump and wherer is the oil pump on this car

If the vehicle is operating normally and not knocking and making noises suspect a faulty oil pressure switch/oil sending unit. The oil pump is located inside of the oil pan.

Oil leak from the hose an 1995 oldsmobile aurora

Mostly likely it's coming from the oil cooler lines from the motor to the radiator. My friend's Aurora has the same leak, we replaced the oil pressure sending unit, which is close by the lines, but the lines, where the compressed part of the fitting was leaking there. The oil cooler lines will have to be replaced.

When my 1996 old aurora get up to temp about 220 the dash warns me my oil pressure is low. AT stops it can drop to 5 to 7 sometimes lower.

see if your oil pressure sending unit is leaking it should be located close to the oil filter. pull the plug off the sending unit to see if oil drips out. if so replace it.

1998 olds Aurora i have an oil leak, is it common

There are common places, you'll just have to look around to see where the leak is:
Around the oil filter and the housing
Around the oil pan and the pan gasket
The oil seal behind the damper pulley
Valve cover gaskets
These are the most common places, leaks can spring up anywhere.

Low oil pressure light goes on until car warms up. Oil level is good

The oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. I sending unit is just above the oil filter and you can get to it from the top. When you face the Engine look down towards the oil filter, the oil pressure sending unit is just above that and it looks like a cylinder with two wires coming from it. If you don't see it, it's right between the exhaust manifold and oil filter.
If you go to Auto Zone or Parts Source, they'll have the oil pressure sending unit and the step by step instructions, When installing the new sensor. Do not use teflon tape or any sealant, the sensor is tapered and need's the good ground from the engine to give you right readings.
Good luck and hope this helps.
