2002 Dodge Stratus: the oil pressure sensor has gone bad

Resolved Question:

I have a 2002 Dodge Stratus. We suspect that the oil pressure sensor has gone bad. I have purchased the new part, but we need to know the location of the sensor to replace it with the new one. Can you help us?

Good afternoon, I will assume you have a 4 dooro stratus with the 2.7 liter engine. If its not then let me know otherwise. Here is the info you requested:


The engine oil pressure switch is located on the right side of the engine block (the firewall side). You will have to gain access to it from underneath the vehicle. The switch screws into the engine main oil gallery. The normally closed switch provides an input through a single wire to the low pressure indicator light on the instrument cluster.



  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  2. Remove heat shield that covers oil pressure switch.
  3. Disconnect oil pressure switch electrical connector.
  4. Position an oil collecting container under switch location.
  5. Remove switch by unscrewing from the engine block.

If this answers your question then press ACCEPT. If you need more help then let me know. Thanks
