1999 Galant 2.4 SOHC - Oil pressure sensor (Oil Pressure sending unit) is located at the rear of the engine block, closer to the battery. The wire harness from generator has a short branch to the oil pressure sending unit. If you remove the battery and remove the battery base plate (three 12mm + two 10mm), you can reach the oil pressure sending unit. I have Haynes manual for Galant but Haynes manual says that oil pressure sending unit for 1999 Galant 2.4 SOHC is located in front of the engine near timing belt, but its wrong information.

To replace, first pull out the slip connector. In my case, slip connector was loose when pulled out from the sensor. Prior to install slip connector, I had to remove plastic housing of the slip connector and tighten the slip connector with plyer.

Remove the sensor using 1inch deep socket. If the sensor is rusted, it is recommended to apply WD-40 before removing the sensor (If you break the sensor, it must be very hard work to remove the thread and clean the cylinder!)

You should apply liquid sealant on the sensor thread to prevent oil leakage.
