2003 Chevy Avalanche 5.3L Z71, 70K miles, Oil pressure gauge is reading 80psi when I turn to ON position, and 80psi when engine is running. Oil level is OK, and no unusual noises. Is the oil pressure sender bad? Where is it located on this engine?

The oil pressure sensor is located at the rear of the engine block next to the distributor on the drivers side.
