jonb9173 :

Ok why do you want to change the sending unit?

Customer:

lol but i got another problem i cant seem to find the right answer too. i need to replace the oil pressure sending unit i think and i cant locate it anywhere.

Customer:

ok were is what my car is doing...

Customer:

when its cold or just starting up...it has good pressure on oil gauge in car till i get the motor warmed and hot.

Customer:

then i hear the chattering in the valves and rockers

Customer:

i dont hear it when oil is cold

jonb9173 :

What does it drop to

Customer:

just when its good and warm when i push on the gas

Customer:

and the oil pressure drops to 0

Customer:

at idles

Customer:

but increases when i hit the gas

Customer:

and check engine light comes on sometimes...not all the time.

Customer:

no oil is leaking from what i can see

jonb9173 :

Just curious how often do you change your oil?

Customer:

its been changed several times.

Customer:

last time wasnt a week ago

Customer:

i had to replace the low oil sensor cause the new one i had was broken at default

Customer:

manufacture broken so i replaced it

Customer:

it works

jonb9173 :

Ok give me a few minutes and i will be able to tell you tell you the location gotta run to my shop.

Customer:

ok and also i need to know if its a 2 prong or 3 prong

Customer:

plug

jonb9173 :

Gotcha no problem

Customer:

Customer:

brb taking my dog outside real quick

Customer:

back

jonb9173 :

Ok im back

Customer:

wb

jonb9173 :

just wanted to make sure i was right. It is right above the oil filter

Customer:

ok is it a 2 or 3 prong?

Customer:

and a reg wrench can take it off right? i dont need a special tool?

jonb9173 :

If you can't get it off with a wrench you may need to get the righ socket. Auto zone or someplace similar will have a oil pressure sensor socket

Customer:

ok cool, so its right next to the oil filter

jonb9173 :

Can't find how many wires the sensor has but if you are goig to change it anyways it should not matter. Just as long as it is a senor for a 3.4 it should fit

jonb9173 :

Yes right above the filter

Customer:

ok advance auto asked me if its a 2 or 3 prong

jonb9173 :

Well then go look now that you know where it is at and you will know for sure. Sorry i can't keep you from climbing under the car:)
