Oil Pressure Sending Unit

Good Morning,

I need some technical advice on how to identify and reach the Oil Pressure Sending Unit. I have searched and read many threads and I beleive I have all the information I needed, but when I went out to complete the project, I could not reach the area. I tried from under the vehicle and from the top. I am frustrated because every thread I read, simply says unplug the cap and unscrew it. It should be simple.

I know many of you will laugh at this question but I am a noob. I got my jeep 3 months ago and have been reading this site ever since. I know you read this everyday, but it is amazing how much info is on this site. I got suckered into Premium Membership with the Big Giveaway and Membership Drive so I plan on posting a lot more. Please have patience.

Thanks for all the help.

On my 97 it's located just above the oil filter. Unplug pigtail then unscrew sending unit.

Yeah its real easy, it's just on top of the oil filter. I did from the top but u might be able to get it from bottom if u remove the oil filter.

When you go to install the new one, don't put any thread tape on it.
