Start by taking the drivers side tire off and remove the rubber splash guard inside the wheel well.

Look in from the wheel well. The red arrow indicates the oil sender right on the side of the engine block with the single white/green wire coming out of it.

Unplug the connector.

Unplug and unscrew it using a deep socket.

New oil sender

Put a little plumbers "Teflon" pipe tape or silicone "High Temp." RTV on the threads before installing to prevent any oil leakage after installation.

Screw it in by hand, then tighten completely with the removal socket. Put everything back in reverse order. Plug connector back on new sender, replace the splash guard at drivers wheel well, put on your tire, torque down the lug nuts. Your all done, start it up and your oil pressure gauge will work like new.

Good Luck;
Rick
