Where is the pressure switch located on a 1995 V6 Toyota Camry

You would probably mean the oil pressure (or 'sender') unit. On the 1MZ alloy block V6 it is located on the front of the engine under the timing belt cover at about the level of the oil filter, below the alternator mounting. See here p140 (you don't need to do the large amount of disassembly shown in the diagram).

On the older 3VZ iron block engine it is on the outside of the block right next to the oil filter, near where the dipstick tube goes down.

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.

Where is the oil sending unit located on a 1999 nissan altima?

Not exactly sure about 1999 model but It's usually located next to the oil filter with a wire coming out of it or with in the oil drain area. It's about $12 to replace.
For vehicles with an indicator light, the sending unit is like a simple switch. When the engine is off, or the pressure is too low, the switch closes, and illuminates the lamp. Under pressure, the switch is open and the lamp goes out. The only difference in the above test, is with the wire disconnected, the light is out, and with the wire grounded, the light is on.

How to change oil sendig unit where is t located?

Usually in most cases, and at least on one of the engines possible on the escape, the oil pressure sending unit is located right next to the oil filter on the front of the engine. It looks like a small metal can with only one wire connecting to it. With what little detail i have for now, that's all i can say to help you. if you want more precise info i would need to know what engine is in the hood exactly. So for now hope this helps, if not just message me back with engine info.

Oil pressure gauge has pegged tothe high side

Probably pressure sending gauge. Can't recall its exact location gotta be in block between ( or next to oil filter) and cam shaft. Unplug it put your pressure tester in its place and check your pressure.If a-ok either clean out the unit with compressed air or replace it . Replacement is the better option. Also check the wiring to the gauge it might be gounded. If pressure is still high when your checking it (which I really doubt) .....keep me posted I'll walk you threw it.

Volvo 850 oil pressure sending unit

It's on the engine, right next to the starter, it has one wire going to it. You don't need to drain the oil. If the light is coming on, you may have bad seals in the oil pan, a fairly common problem, but replacing the switch is a good fisrt step.
