    Default Oil Pressure sensor

    On a 2000 5.3L where can you find the oil pressure sensor on the engine? Oil pressure gauge is going crazy! Any help would be great!

    The oil pressure sending unit is in the top of the block back behind the intake manifold, On the right side if standing in front of the motor. Its a black tube about 1 1/2" or so in dia. about 2 " tall
