Are you just talkin about the oil pressure switch? Thats the thing on top of where the oil filter is right? I saw a picture that Danthurs posted in another thread, but can't seem to find it. I wanted to use it to verify what you guys are talkin about.

I had one replaced like 2 years ago when my car was still under warranty cause my pressure was pegged in the red, it fixed the problem but now my pressure is bouncin below 40 and up to 60.

cool, is the easiest way to do this just take the wheel and the splash shield out and go from the wheel well or is there more to it? I havent had a chance to look at it yet.

What seals are you talking about?

Jack the car up and put it on some solid jack stands or drive it up on some ramps. You'll have to get to the sender from underneath and you see it above the filter on the passenger side. The switch is on the inside on the side of the filter/pressure regulator plate. You'll need a good size crescent wrench and some rags....Oil will pour out the hole so be ready to throw the new switch in. It'* a good idea to put some teflon tape on the threads of the switch as well. It will keep the leaks at bay and make it easier to thread the switch in.
