Where is oil pressure switch in chevy lumina van 1996?

To locate the oil pressure sending unit, locate the oil filter and look above it and to the right, above the starter. You will see a long round sensor, this is the oil pressure sending unit. It screws into the engine block and when you remove it you will get a dribble of oil.
