The lower rear part of the engine. You will see it from the passenger side on the bottom half of the engine in the back. added fact: the seat for this is plastic. Most oil leaks for the straight four cylinder engine starts here. You will see a puddle in the middle of the engine on the driveway.

The oil pressure switch on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier is on the rear of the engine block. It will be directly above the oil pan.

On a Chevy Cavalier, the low pressure switch is located under the hood on the passenger side, next to the radiator. It is situated near the top corner of the radiator.

Either replace with a known good switch or with a manual oil pressure gauge

Electric or Manual It is really just a switch that is kept from being grounded by about 8lbs of oil pressure. More elaborate ones will have resistors for use with electric guages.
