Installed in 2006 5.3L Traiblazer. Check engine light on and Oil Pressure gauge reading over 80PSI. DTC Oil Pressure circuit out of range. Disconnect OPS see if gauge Zero's with key on. Reconnect OPS if gauge pegs replace OPS. Easy to install with OPS socket and universal joint and extension. When installing start by hand. Location facing engine on right rear behind intake plenum. 3 wire connector.

Sensor was in stock and at a good price. Removed old sensor with correct 1 1/8" sensor socket. Went to put new sensor in, and hex head on new sensor was larger than the original sensor, the correct socket did not fit. Was too far away to try to get a replacement, so had to modify to make socket fit on sensor. Hopefully it doesn't fail, as it's hard to get to on vehicle.

                    The electrical connector on top is taller than OEM. You need to have a deep socket to put it in. A normal depth socket can break off the connector very easily. Like I did. Then I had to buy a second part. Would have like to have had a heads-up about this potential.

                            My pressure gauge on my 2003 Tahoe was reading 80psi when it was recommended that I changed the sensor. Easy installation if you don't mind having you wrists eaten up.
                            Now the needle pegs the gauge. Could I have a bad sensor or does this indicate a gauge issue?

I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                              Hi Alexander, glad to serve you! The oil pressure switch should be located in the valley of engine behind intake manifold at the back of engine you. It can be accessed with a thin walled oil sender socket. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

On your 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the oil pressure switch is normally located near the rear right corner of the engine near where the head and intake manifold come together. I recommend a repair manual for more detailed instructions on the removal and installation of the part. Haynes Part No. 24066.

                              Hi Bud, my answer to your question on the BWD Engine Oil Pressure Switch - part# S4202 is that the oil pressure sending unit on your 2003 Chevy Avalanche would be located at the back of the block, top-center, under the intake manifold.
