Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 mercury cougar xr7 ? Its cause my oil pressure gauge is bouncing up and down...i dont know why...can anybody please help me thank you so much

The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate anytime the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. When the engine is running, the light also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:
If the oil pressure light does not work, perform the following:
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp lights, make sure the oil pressure switch is properly grounded in the cylinder block, and if so replace the oil pressure switch. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.
To diagnose an oil pressure light that stays on, perform the following:
  1. Check the engine oil level and top off as necessary. If the engine was 2 or more quarts low on oil, test start the engine after topping off the oil level and recheck the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on, stop the engine immediately and go to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the wire at the sending unit, then turn the ignition switch to theON position. If the light remains on, check the wire from the sending unit to the gauge for being shorted to ground and repair as necessary. If the light goes out, turn the ignition switch OFF and go to the next step.
  3. Replace the oil pressure sending switch with a known good switch.
  4. Start the engine and check the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on with the engine running, stop the engine immediately to avoid severe engine damage until the cause of the problem can be determined.

WARNING
If the oil pressure light remains on while the engine is started, stop the engine immediately. Do not operate the engine until the cause of the problem can be determined. Operating an engine with low oil pressure will cause severe internal damage.

Possible causes for an oil pressure light to stay on are:


Pinched or grounded sensor wireDefective oil pressure sending unitRestricted or severely leaking oil filterExcessive internal engine bearing clearance.Insufficient or severely contaminated engine oilBlocked oil pump pickup screen or severely worn oil pump

It reads codes po300 po300 po522 but it runs perfect sometimes I need to press fuel pedal to start?


code p 0300 refers to random/multiple cylinder misfires detected ===causes spark plugs ---HT leads ---injector/s--ignition coil/s---low compression---wiring
code p 0522 refers to engine oil pressure sensor/switch--low voltage ===causes wiring short to ground ---engine oil pressure sensor /switch---ECM
for the first code having to alter the accelerator position ( which tells the ECM to let in more fuel indicates either a low pressure in the fuel manifold or that the injectors need cleaning
At high way speeds when the engine appears to be running good , it is still possible to have random misfires caused by low fuel pressures and /or dirty injector tips
It would be a good idea to check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge ,then replace the oil pressure sensor/switch

Is ther a fuel shut off valve on bobcat 225 welder


No shut off unless someone installed it- a good idea if ithas running gear. Unit has an electric fuel pump. Check to make sure wiring to it is in good condition and not brittle from heat. When in start position, there should be 12 volts to pump- it bypasses the oil pressure switch until key is moved to run position.

Check the fuse to the fuel pump to see if it has not fatigue failed- it will look okay but no continuity.

If fues is good, then next:
The Oil pressure switch is in the circuit to shut off fuel It may be defective, or fuel pump may be defective. Check for continuity with a full oil level first. If you do not get about 5 ohms or less continuity, replace switch.

My 1993/94 ford mercury marquis sounds like it wants to turn over but it sounds like it dont have gas which it does but i unclipped the gas line by the filter to see if it was getting pressure and it is...


Try looking the relay and fuse for the fuel pump are located in the engine compartment near the battery, some label Powers Fuel Pump Relay (20AMP*). The relay is marked "Fuel Pump Relay" use the box lid to ID the relay position.

Hope helps.

ENGINE CODE P1189 2002 MONTE CARLO


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P1189

Description: "Oil Pressure Switch Signal Voltage Is High"

The engine oil pressure switch closes when there is low oil pressure, making the sensor signal voltage low. The switch opens when the oil pressure is above 4.5 Psi, making the sensor circuit voltage high. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the oil pressure switch and sends a class 2 message to the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) to tell it if the switch is open or closed. DTC1189 is set when the PCM determines that the sensor signal circuit is high with the ignition switch in the RUN position for more than 10 seconds.

Both the PCM and IPC must be scanned and the data must be checked and verified before the actual cause of this code can be accurately determined. This can be caused by a number of different things including: low engine oil pressure, a malfunctioning oil pressure switch, broken wires or bad connectors, or a defective IPC or ECM.

I need to know where the oli sending unit is and how to replace it?

Fig.: Oil pressure switch (sending unit) schematic


The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. The lamp also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
On the 2.4L engine, the oil pressure switch is located on the side of the engine block facing the firewall. On the 3.0L engine, the oil pressure switch is located on the oil filter adapter housing, next to the starter motor. On the 3.3L and 3.8L engines, the oil pressure switch is located next to the oil filter.
  1. Locate the oil pressure sending unit on the engine.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Disconnect the pressure switch electrical harness.
  4. Using a pressure switch socket, deep-well socket or wrench, loosen and remove the pressure switch from the engine.
To install:
  1. Install the pressure switch into the engine and tighten securely.
  2. Attach the electrical connector to the switch.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.
  4. Start the engine, allow it to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.
  5. Check for proper oil pressure switch operation.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answerr).

Problem with it is the oil light comes on when at a stop sign or at a red light but then goes off when you get going. But it's not leaking any oil, has had oil changes regularly


It's most likely one of two things: Your engine could be low enough on oil pressure when idling that the light is coming on for that exact reason or your oil pressure sensing switch could be faulty and misreading the actual oil pressure and erroneously turning on the light. The only real way to tell is to have someone remove the oil pressure sensing switch and temporarily install a mechanical test gauge in its place to check the actual oil pressure available. If it's low then there is an internal engine problem of some sort. If the pressure is about 10 psi or higher at an idle and 30 psi plus at 2500 rpm then your sender is at fault.

Zx12 oil pressure warning light has come on when i did an emergency stop. Oil is not low but light will not go out. Does it take a while for the pressure switch to reset after coming on?


NO!
be suspect of both the swich & the oil pump!!!
get it checked ASAP
dont start it !! just incase its the oil pump or you can spin a bearing or seize the engine!
