It probably has nothing to do with low oil LEVEL. Oil pressure is directly related to the condition of the crank and rod bearings in the engine. Change the oil immediately and use a thicker oil. If you're currently using 5W20 oil change to 10W30. If you're using a straight grade oil go one or two numbers higher. Another option is to use STP or some other oil thickening agent to squeeze a few more miles out of the engine. Low oil pressure is caused by excessive wear on the rod and main bearings. The rod and main bearings float on a film of oil. There is usually less than the thickness of a human hair between the bearing surface and the crankshaft in a new engine. When the bearing gets worn, that thickness can be many times that. Pressurized oil is pumped through "journals" in the crankshaft to cause the bearings to float on a film of oil. When the oil gets old it becomes less capable of lubricating. When it gets dirty it acts like an abrasive and causes wear on the bearing surfaces. It's very important to use good oil and keep it clean. With good maintenance an engine can go more than 400,000 miles without touching the heads. Unfortunately, your problem is probably not the sending unit. But just to be certain, connect an oil pressure gauge and see what it says. If the oil pressure drops after the oil warms up, it's bearings.
The oil pressure sending unit is located on the back of the block. it is the sensor located closest to the alternator.
the oil pressure sending unit is to the drivers side of the distributor screwed into th block. Dave.
the oil pressure sending unit for a 1995 Cavalier 2.2 is on the side of the engine. The sensor is located just behind the oil filter.
The oil pressure sending unit is located right above the oil filter.
It is on the fuel pump sending unit that is inside of the fuel tank.
The oil pressure sending unit is on top of the engine at the back. It is right beside of the distributor.
The Oil Pressure Switch (Oil Sending Unit) is located on the rear of the motor towards the top. The crank sensor is located next to it if that helps any.
Where is located pressure sensor on Chevy Malibu 1999
If the car has a 3.1 or a 2.8, the sensor is located right next to the oil filter, to the right about 1 inch.
It is located under the motor right next to the oil filter. I just changed mine today.
The original answer is incorrect. The low oil level sensor is located where the original answer states. The oil pressure sending unit is a separate part. The sending unit is located on the left rear top of the engine, behind the intake manifold mounted into the top of the block.
fuel pressure sensor is located on the tank
The oil pressure sensor, or oil sender unit, is located on the intake manifold just underneath and to the left of the alternator. Hope this helps.
The fuel tank pressure sensor is located on the fuel sending unit/pump. Located in the fuel tank under the rear seat. should be on the left side of the tank. Pretty sure you cant replace it seperatly....but not totally sure? I think you have to replace the whole sending unit/fuel pump.
On the left rear side of the block just below the head
The oil pressure sending unit, on a Chevrolet 4.3 liter V-6 engine, is located on the left side of the engine, just above the oil pan. The sensor is near the front of the engine.
Could be a faulty pressure sensor. The pressure sensor on many GM vehicles is located on top of the fuel tank attached to the fuel pump/sending unit assembly. It can be changed with the tank in place if you can get your fingers on it. Unplug the wire harness from it and wiggle the sensor straight up and out.

What type of sensor? The tire pressure sensor is located in the wheel.
The fuel pressure sensor is located on the fuel rail attached to the fuel pressure regulator.
It could be. An oil sensor could measure pressure, temperature, level, or quality.
Back of the engine ,behind intake manifold, besides oil pressure sending unit...
where is the oil pressure sensor located on a 2005 frontier 4 liter v6 thanks
The oil pressure sensor is located on the back of the engine, next to the distributor.The oil pressure sensor is located on the back of the engine, next to the distributor.
The oil pressure sending unit is located on the driver side near the firewall in the side of the cylinder head. Below is an attached link with a diagram that shows the location.
