Thank you Mr. Bell that is a great help ! I have looked several places on line
trying to get a clear location specified. It'* the only current problem with the car, and
as you can imagine it is one that causes a lot of anxiety when it comes to true
oil pressure levels.

Again much Thanks

I remember for awhile on my car my oil pressure ran low. Then I did an oil change and the oil pressure shot right back up to were it use to be.

:(

Actually I just returned from getting the oil changed and it actually looks to
be a little worse then it was. Now I wonder if the guy I bought it from was
running 50 weight or something to that effect in it just to get the chime to
stop going off at stop lights etc because of pressure under 20 lbs. ?
Will probably try a new sending unit as well this weekend..

Guys if you are using a Fram oil filter, get it off the car and pitch it... Go with an AC Delco, Wix, Puralator and the like...
