Hi,

Look just to the left of the power brake booster (drivers side), on the very back of the intake, you should see it, it will be sticking up, coming from the manifold, should have a connector with 2 wires on it. You will need a special socket (any auto parts store). If you try to use a normal socket or wrench, you will most likely damage/destroy the sending unit.

Note - The above information is as per my best knowledge. However, if you are unable to find it, revert and i would be able to pull out the old manuals to confirm the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: where is the oil pressure sending unit located at

Good Evening. The location of the sensor is almost hidden, however very common on gm trucks as far as location. If you crawl up on the radiator support and look back at the distributor now look to your right and straight down you will see it. I also recommend the special socket designed for oil pressure sensor removal/installation. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

1996 chevy 5.0 express van starts for about 10 sec. then dies, fuel psi starts at 60 then drops to 42 psi then dies, im thinking a pressure regulator if so where is it located.


Hi, try pulling the connector off your oil pressure switch and using a short jumper wire to connect the terminals inside. The switch is on top of the engine behind the distributor. If this works to keep the pressure up, replace the oil pressure switch. You may notice your oil pressure gauge spiking and/or the engine light may illuminate. This is normal with the jumper wire installed. Please let me know if this doesn't work or you have any questions.

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.

Sounds like your oil pressure sencor is out,or your oil pump is going out.If the car looses oil pressure it will shut itself off.To be honest I think your oil pump is going out.All that said you have checked your oil level to make sure its full right?If the oil pressure sencor is bad or going bad it will have the same proublem.Get a coad checker and see what coad its throwing.That will tell you alot.
