    Default '92 Buick Riviera Oil Pressure Sending Unit Location?

    We have a '92 Buick Riviera 3.8L with a horribly erratic, digital, oil
    pressure gauge. I'm having trouble locating the Oil Pressure Sending
    Unit, so I can check for loose connections and/or replacement. Where is
    the Oil Pressure Sending Unit located on this vehicle?

    `On the oil pump housing near the filter.

    Steven,

    And figure on replacing the sender. Those senders have a bad issue
    with wearing a bad spot in them at the resistance value of normal oil
    pressure, which will make the gauge reading erratic. Eventually it
    will go full scale on you when oil pressure is at normal value. Did
    this on my '87 Olds and numerous other GM cars with 3.8L V-6s and oil
    pressure gauges, and now my '94 Regal's oil pressure gauge is acting
    weird. Ahhhh such fun . . .
