That is great news man, glad to hear it was a cheap fix for you!

I hate to say it but I dont even know what this thing looks like or exactly where it is. I have a good aptitude for repairing things so if I can find a picture or diagram of where it is I'm sure I can handle it. Maybe I'll stop by Autozone on the way home and at least get the part.

its located behind the intake manifold on the passenger side, positioned vertically.



hard to see the connector on the end of it so you will have to feel for the clip to remove it, also don't forget the oil pressure switch socket which is like 5 bucks.

Bought the sending unit and socket today. But of course I forgot I didnt have the right ratchet for the socket.... Guess it's back to the store tomorrow.

Thanks for the info..
