    On my old 4.3 it was located on the trans mounting flange portion of the block below the oil pressure sending unit. To change it requires removal of the distributor then the oil pressure sending unit then unscrewing the sensor and pull it out.

    So in other words, its at the back of the intake manifold.

    HOWEVER; this is info from when I changed it on my 97 Silverado. I'm not sure if its in the same location as with the van. I'll see if I can dig up a picture of the location.



    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    Current:
    1999 GMC Sierra SLT Z71 | 5.3 "Vortec" | Spectre "Cold Air Intake" | TransDapt TBS | Hypertech 30005 Tune | 2005 Chevy Tail Lights | Denali headlights | Grill Mounted Fog Lights | AWS Bug Shield | 265/70/16 Futura Scramblers | Boss HD Speakers | 2005 Overhead Console | Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers 2N1O | Mostly stock-ish
    Future:
    Bigger Amp Alternator | Electric Fans | Transmission Fluid cooler | Paint (Halfway there)| Interior Restoration/Upgrade with newer model parts | Window Visors (In channel) | Tint | Low-Profile Tool Box | LEDs throughout stock cab locations (68% Done) | And whatever is spurr of the moment
