Default Where do you get an oil level sensor?

About two or three times a day my car will cleanly shut off. I've tested my oil level sensor and it'* intermittent at best, So I carried my happy butt to AutoZone to get a new one. They don't carry them. Neither goes Advance O'reillys or NAPA. WTH?

Why do you think that'* the oil level sensor? I don't believe that will shut your car off, will it?

I can't remember exacly how it does it, but it kills the car. I tested it probbly a month ago, But luckily with my memory I can't even remember how I tested it.... I do know I was laying on my side in front of the car to get to it....

Are you talking about the oil level sensor in the oil pan? Thats a GM only part, and its about $40 if I remember correctly from GMPD....www.gmpartsdirect.com

It fixed the Check Oil Level idiot light on my dash. It was driving me nuts.
