You didn't mention if you have the 6 cyl, the 5.0 or the 5.8, so I'll be a bit more generic. It's pretty simple. It just screws in to the block. It's most likely on the top/rear of the engine. Just locate it, disconnect the wire and unscrew it. Use thread sealer on the new one. Here's a photo of what it should generally look like and what you'll be looking for (if you don't know what it looks like or where it is already). Some are white on the top and not black like the one below.

SOURCE: Volvo 850 oil pressure sending unit.

it's generally located near or on the housing for the oil filter. you shouldn't need to drain the oil... just clean off any dirt around the sensor before you replace it... and yes i know this is very obvious to most people but i have to mention it whether i want to or not... this is done with the motor off.

SOURCE: need help with oil pressure sending unit...maybe

You got it, Common for the plastic top where the wire leads connect to crack. This will cause the oil to leak and at worst, what you have indicated happening on your Blazer. Note; when installing the new sensor, do not use any Teflon tape on the threads. The sensor is tapered and works best to have a good ground, so just tighten it enough to keep the oil from leaking. Good luck friend and make sure you pick up the right oil sending unit sensor. One is for just a light to activate and the other is the one you need to be able to give you a oil pressure reading. Best to go at a Dealer for this part with your VIN number.

Why the oil light came on and off, I had change the new pump,pick up screen, and change the oil sending unit ?


Most likely the oil pump light will come on if the oil pressure is low. This light is based on a pressure sensor. Your oil pump is likely not operating to deliver the required pressure. Check that your pump is installed properly.

Oil light is on oil level is ok


This means that the oil pressure is low or the oil pressure sending unit is bad. Usually the oil sending unit is bad. They go out often, so I would start with having the oil pressure sending unit replaced. It is not expensive, usually and could correct the problem without expensive work. As always if the oil has not been changed regularly then change it and that may turn the light out too. Good luck and have a nice evening. Peter

No oil pressure


either replace oil sending unit or get a manual oil pressure gauge and screw in to oil sending unit port and visually check with engine running to see if or what the actual pressure is. If 0 pressure registers then bad oil pump. but if good pressure, then you have a bad oil sending unit. also change oil filter.

Oil pressure light still flashes after an oil change and after changing the oil sending unit??why


Check the oil pressure at the sending unit by removing it and using a fitting to an oil pressure gauge to see if it's within specs. The oil pump may be wearing out, causing an actual low pressure.

Good luck on this repair.

Pontiac Bonneville(2000) oil pressure sending unit


The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

Fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge reading


The oil pressure sending unit is a sensor with an internal diaphragm, if the internal diaphragm is damaged , or the line to the diaphragm is blocked you can get this kind of fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge.

The oil pressure value must be read by installing a mechanical gauge near to the oil pressure switch and checking the pressure.

If pressure is ok, replace the sending unit. If there is a real pressure drop, check the oil pump.

If you still get fluctualtion after replacing the oil pressure sending unit, replace the oil pressure gauge.
