SOURCE: 84 s10 oil pressure

Yes that switch will work. So will a lot of other parts and gaskets. You have to make sure the engine size is the same. Parts are compatible with the same engine size. Have a drain pan and new oil ready in case the oil does come flowing out.
Please remember to rate this solution.

SOURCE: 84 s10 oil pressure switch

There is nothing wrong with buying parts on ebay. If you don't mind the wait, in my experience you will save. Just make sure it is the right on for your truck, but i think most oil sending units for G.M. are pretty much the same, especially the older ones. If you are unsure message the seller, I am sure they will be glad to help. You don't have to drain, just unplug it then screw it off, when reinstalling it I would put some Teflon tape on the threads to prevent any leaks

Where is oil sending unit located?


You're vehicle has two sensors for the oil,an oil pressure sensor switch & oil pressure sensor.If oil pressure gets below 6psi,the oil pressure sensor switch will turn a dash light on to let you know the pressure is at a dangerously low amount.So if you've got a dash light on,the pressure sensor switch needs to be replaced.Its located to the right of the oil filter housing,on a 2.0 liter.Its located to the left of the oil filter housing,on the 3.0 liter.
If your oil pressure gauge is reading inaccurately,you need to replace the oil pressure sensor instead.Its located near the ac compressor.

I cant find the oil pressure switch


What engine? 4.7 liter it's right above the oil filter. Typically oil pressure sensors/switches are close to the oil filter on most vehicles.

I need to change the oil pressure sensor, where is it found


The oil pressure sending unit is located to the right of the oil filter and just above the starter motor. This is on the 3.4 liter V6.
On the 2.4 liter 4 cylinder the switch is on the left (drivers) side of the cylinder head.

How much New oil should i put in to my 1992 Suzuki Sierra 4x4 Cheers Neil B


First make sure your drain plug and filter are installed and tight, then add 2 liters of oil and check to see if there is any showing on the dipstick. Add one liter at a time and recheck the dipstick. Bring the level up to the full mark on the dipstick. Now start the engine and observe the oil light(turn off) or pressure gauge(pressure goes up) then turn off engine. If neither happens after about 10 seconds, shut off engine and check for leaks or other malfunctions. If all is O.K. then recheck oil level on dipstick. It should be somewhere between the upper and lower level, usually indicated by crosshatch marking. Add oil to bring oil level to full mark. Small amount at a time. Most small vehicles only take about 3.5 to 4 liters.

No oil pressure on an audi 2 liter 20 valve engine Very noisy tappets


Did you check the pressure first? Noisy tappets don't necessarily mean low pressure, sometimes they simply wear out.
Otherwise, either your oil pump is bad, or the oil pickup screen located inside the oil pan area is clogged up. Clean the screen first and then check the pressure...

Oil pressure on a 2004 5.3 liter silverado at idle is around 20


The pressure to be most concerned with is the reading in gear at idle with engine warmed up...Low end really should not be below 20. If pressure wanders, change the sending unit and check actual pressure with a mechanical gauge if necessary. The age and quality of your oil, as well as temperature all play a part in pressure, as well as internal wear from time & miles of use. If pressure changes with rpm, that is normal. 40psi is good while driving.
need more info just ask.
