Oil pressure sender is located at the rear of engine, bank 1, if you are at top of engine you may access it a little bit right away from center rear side of engine, keep the engine cold if you want to remove it or replace, you need socket #27 when removing and rachet, or the special tool by gm J41712,

I looked at info for 1500--5.7L engine.

Sometimes, you can use analog gage in place of oil pressure sending unit and double check oil pressure that way. If oil pressure is actually low, if high mileage engine, I doubt replacing oil pump will help. I just wanted to add, check oil pressure engine warmed up.

Locate 2003 chevy suburban oil pressure sending unit


5.3 liter? It is located on the very back of the engine closest to the firewall. It will be to the right and below the I take plenum ( as your standing in front of the vehicle). It is almost impossible to see but you will be able to feel around back there and find it. You will need a oil pressure sending unit socket to remove and replace it.

Well, it depends on what you would consider "hard to change". The sending unit simply un-screws from the engine (after disconnecting the electrical connector) and the new one simply screws in. Depending on which engine your Suburban is equipped with, it may be a little difficult to get to. Yes, you need a special socket that is designed to remove and install oil pressure sending units. Otherwise there is a great risk of damaging the new sending unit trying to install it. You can purchase the socket at most auto parts outlets, but the cost of the socket may be as much or more than the labor to have a professional technician do the job for you.

If your sending unit is one wire, unhook it from the sender and place a jumper wire from wire to ground. Turn ign on, gauge should pep high PSI. Two wire plug, place jumper between contacts of wires (unplugged). Same thing. What this does is isolate the gauge. If gauge pegs on test, replace sender. If it does it again with new sender, it's the pump. But it's probably the sender.

Where is the oil pressure sending unit?


The oil pressure sending unit is located on the engine block, passenger side by the Distributor. Good luck and make sure you get the right sending unit, there is the simple unit that only turns on a low oil pressure light and the other will send signals to the oil pressure gauge.

Too much oil can increase the pressure that will eventually blow the gaskets from retainer rings. I am not sure what the pressure should be in your auto, i recommend you take it to a qualified mechanic...
