1997 Cadillace Deville: My oil pressure light comes on when I am stopped at a redlight and goes off once I give it gas. The Oil Level Sensor AND the Oil Pressure Sending Unit have both been replaced. About...

This problem is caused by a defective oil pressure sending unit on the engine in most cases. The oil pressure sending unit is located on the oil filter adapter housing on the front of the engine. It is hidden a bit behind the front engine mount bracket.

1997 nissan pickup 2 whl drive 2.4l oil is pouring from oil pressure sensor or oil filter when running. can not tell the exact location of leak but looks more like the sensor than the filter.

unscrew the sensor and replace. its a $10 part. The other problem could be a loose oil filter or an oil filter with two gaskets, this happens when an old gasket does not come off with the filter.

We are trying to find out if my 1997 buick le sabre has an oil pan sensor or oil pressure sensor and where it is located at so that we can change out the oil pan

all car well have a oil pressure sensor, the oil pressure sensor is what lets you know, you have good oil pressure, if light comes on low oil pressure, need to turn off engine before major engine damage occurs, the oil pressure switch will be next to the oil filter, screw into the engine block, your car also has a oil pan sensor, called oil level sensor, that one screw into the side of the oil pan, it let you know when your some what low on oil.

1997 ford expedition oil pressure guage is fluctuating, but not all the time

Usually the oil sending sensor will go bad on this vehicle. I have changed mine , which jumped up and down but not all the time. It cost about $25 and 5-10 min of time. It's located right at the oil filter. Just be sure you don't have a major problem internal, but the expedition is known for the oil sensor to go out. The sensor usually is worst in the winter detecting the oil pressure.
