SOURCE: location of oil pressure sender on '98 Linc. Navigator

the oil pressure sending unit is usally located in the same side the oil filter is and this is because the oil filter is connected to the oil pump so there should be one little single wire in that area

How to install a after market oil pressure gauge on a 2000 Chevy suburban with a 5.3L .


find the electric pressure sender unit in the side of the block, unscrew it and install a "T" piece
screw the electric sender unit back into one section
using copper tubing screw the copper into the other section of the "T" piece and thread the copper to where you want the oil pressure gauge and finish the installation
you probably got it with plastic tubing
do not use that as the plastic melts from hot oil, gets hard from the oil , breaks and loose oil from the oil galley
wiring from the gauge is from a suitable power point at the ignition switch

Where is the oil pressure sensor on a 1995 Chevy Truck? V-8, 5.7 L. I have the new one, just can't find the one I need to replace.


If you go to a parts store, I prefer CARQUEST, they will gladly print up a schematic or just show you where it is if that is all you need.

Hello Robert, you could have a bad oil sender unit. Install an auxiliary oil pressure gauge to measure the amount of oil pressure. If reading is around 15 PSI or better at idle, change the oil sender unit.

Low oil pressure


There's a couple of things you can try. You could have a bad oil pressure sender or a bad gauge. Without spending a lot you could replace the sender unit. If the gauge is defective, it is more expensive and the new sender was a waste of money.

You could have someone put on a pressure test gauge which would be threaded into the hole from removing the oil sender. This will tell you if the oil gauge and old sensor are accurate. If the readings from the mechanics add-on gauge are still low, then you have an internal engine problem.

A mechanic will cost you to hook up a test gauge, and you still may have to buy a new sender. Probably the best thing is to do is install a new sender yourself and if it works you are done; if it does not help either go to a mechanic or replace the gauge.

An internal engine problem could be an oil pump, or bearings.

Oil pressure sender


Oil Pressure Sending Units are generally located somewhere around the oil filter, and screw directly into the engine block. Most have a one wire connector, and require a special socket to remove and install. Most look like a bolt with a very large head and a single blade connector on top.

When stopped at lights oil light flashes.. My oil level is fine. What could it be?


this is a common sign of a bad oil pressure sender, but could also be caused by low oil pressure, a sender is cheap,but it"s always smart to do a pressure test first with a mechanical gauge,you can obtain a mechanical gauge from most automotive parts stores. then you"ll have to locate and remove the oil pressure sender and install the gauge you bought. make your test at warm idle you should have at least 25 psi below that you may very possible have worn engine bearings making it impossible for the engine to have any better oil pressure at idle. if you have 25 or greater psi of pressure at idle replace your oil sender and you"ll be back on the road
