Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
The oil pressure sender is a sensor connected to your engine block. It has two wires connected to it and one is directly linked to the oil pressure gauge located on your dashboard. The sender is typically located at the front of your engine block near the fuel filter and close to the intake manifold. Applications vary, so be sure to check your owner's manual to confirm its actual location. You should have easy access to it from the front of the engine block, but you may still need to remove some parts or components to reach and replace it like the fuel filter. You'll need to detach the two wires connected to the outside, unscrew the sender from its housing, clean the gunk out of the threads in the housing, pre-seed the threads of the new sender with a light film of oil, and then screw the new oil pressure sender back into the housing. The final steps include re-attaching the two wires and any removed components like the fuel filter.
