I want to no...

I want to no the location of the oil pressure switch

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

The mechanic says I need the oil pressure switch somewhere near the oil filter.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Nothing I want to find out where it is first.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?

That's it
