Can't find the censor for the oil pressure please help

1 Answer


On the V8 it is located near the oil filter, left hand side of where the filter screws into the block. SOHC 4.0 V6 it's right in front of the upper radiator hose. The V6 pushrod engine, I believe it is located on the right side of the engine below the valve cover (I think). The unit should be metal and most are square with an attached electrical connection.
