Hi all,

can anyone direct me to where the oil pressure sending unit is on the engine? its going bad and will eventually need replacing, just wondering if someone can tell me where it is on the engine itself?

It is on the driver side of the block toward the front. It may be hard to see from above, so you might have better luck from below or by flexing the front of the inner fender splash shield in the wheel well. There is a single wire going to the sending switch - green/white color code.
