The oil pressure falls near the red, the cars only got a 119,000 miles on it. Would that be an oil sending unit?

Yes. The only other thing it could be is the oil pick up screen is clogged. But if the oil has been changed like it should I wouldn't worry about that. Try a new sending unit.

Where is oil pressure switch on 1992 ford 150


Most oil pressure switches/sending units were located are near the oil filter. Did you have the same symptoms before you changed the oil pump? How many miles on your engine? As the bearings (main, rod, camshaft, etc) wear, the gap where oil flows through gets larger, and oil pressure will decrease. If a direct reading gauge shows very low oil pressure at idle, it's time to rebuild or replace the engine.

I'm trying to locate the oil sending unit on a 2001 plymouth neon


How many miles on the car? I recommend hooking up a direct reading oil pressure guage. Oil level is not the only factor on oil pressure. As an engine ages, clearances and bearings wear and the pressure falls. Using too thin oil can result in low pressure.

Having oil pressure problems


The sending unit is a variable resistor. When the oil pressure is normal only a small amount of voltage goes to ground through the sending unit. As the oil pressure goes down, more voltage is shunted to ground reducing the sending unit voltage and causing the gauge to indicate a lower pressure. If the oil pressure falls very low or disappears the sending unit shunts all the voltage to ground which causes the dash indicator to show no oil pressure.
Now if the wire to the sending unit gets nicked, melted or cut and finds a short circuit to ground, or gets disconnected in a junction point between the gauge and the sending unit, you will get the same no oil pressure indication from the gauge.
Check you wiring for a short to ground or an open connection.

The oil light remains on after an oil change/filter. The car is lexus 2000, Gs300. The milage is more than 100,125 miles. What is the prblem?


It depends. If you are talking about the RED oil pressure warning light, the problem is either that your engine has oil pressure problems or it has a defective oil pressure sending unit. If it is actual oil pressure problems, major engine repair or replacement will be necessary to fix it.

Yes you have to check your pressure with a mechanical gauge first. If the pressure reading is good replace the oil pressure sending unit. They are known to go bad, and oil pumps going bad is rare.

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.
