Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
Oil pressure switch or oil pressure sending unit.most cars have both.If it has one wire it is an oil pressure sending unit. if it has a plug with 2 or more wires it is an oil pressure switch and sends a signal to the inboard computer. Remove the wire either a nut or usually a plug.some sending units take a special socket but if you can get a wrench on it turn it counter clock wise and unscrew it. When you get the new one it will have a red material on the threads, this is a sealant.thread the new switch snug and put you plug back on.The sending unit or oil pressure switch is located next to the oil filter. Good luck and keep me posted, Auto Zone will have this part and also have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done.

the oil pressure switch is on pssenger side, lower engine area,beside oil filter, mounted in engine block. The pressure relief valve is in the oil pump, in which case, you have to drop the oil pan,and take off the oil pump.

I've never seen an oil pressure sender mounted to the oil pan. I would guess that's an oil level indicator. The oil pressure sender has to be mounted somewhere on the discharge side of the pump. search 'oil galley' on wikipedia, that may help you understand. It's usually directly screwed into the block, and near the top. it you do find it, it will have one wire. short that wire to ground. If the Gage goes all the way up, the Gage is OK. Good luck! Bob T.

Hello, It should actually be an oil sending unit, and is located on the back of the intake manifold to the left of the distributor. *The P0523 is Oil Pressure Sending Unit Voltage too high *P1693 Generic fault indicating a fault in the bus or PCM/ECM interface *P1682 - I can't find this code Anyways, I will post here all the error codes for future reference.
