Recently the oil pressure gage shows a drop in oil pressure after warming up. No other indicators come on and the pressure drops to 0 after about 10 miles. The vehicle runs well with no other indications of a problem and I change the oil and filter regularly. I purchased an oil sending unit to verify the sending unit was not bad and I cannot find. Where is the oil sending unit on the engine and is it hard to replace?

It's usually right next to or above the oilk filter. Not real hard.

Jack,

I have looked all around the distributor and can find nothing, but as a reminder, there are so many hoses and cables, I cannot be sure just what is what. The distributor sits so close to the firewall, there is no room to do much of anything.

Thanks for the help and I appreciate anything you might find.

Marshall
