The oil pressure sender is located on the back of the engine block, top center. If you look over the top of your intake manifold(you'll have to take the plastic cover off the top of the engine to see it) you can make out the plug sticking up in the back. It takes a large socket to remove, and is a very tight squeeze. The sensor looks like a black plastic cylinder sticking up in the back of the engine with a wire connector on it.

Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

What does low oil pressure on 2008 Chevy Impala 3.5 V6 LS

Do you mean what causes low oil pressure? This is a very reliable engine for the most part. If the oil light is on or gauge is reading low, have the oil pressure sensor inspected for failure. These sensors do go bad.
