    Vertical sensor behind the intake, drivers side. You can see a pic of it in this link with the intake removed: http://www.ls1howto.com/howto/geniii...//IMAGE015.jpg

    Thanks bro-looks like a PITA to get to. I wonder if the cowl will unbolt below the windshield? Probably not LOL.

    It's not too bad. The cowl can come off, but won't help much. You can replace it 1 of 2 ways. The first method involves removing the intake manifold to access the sending unit which most people do. The second method is a little trickier, but can be done in 10 minutes done right. Leaning over the engine, reach your right arm back behind the intake and release the connector from the sending unit. Then install the oil pressure sending unit socket (required in either method), then an open end wrench (most ratchets will not fit), and break loose the sensor. Once the initial torque is removed you can thread the sending unit out by hand. This method is much easier if you're familiar with the sending unit and connector, and have the ability to "see by feel", which many mechanics often attain with experience.

    Thanks I appreciate your insight. Luckily my sensor is not bad its a new guy from Cali. I was tryin to help him out. I would definately try the feel method first if I was doing it, but I guess it wouldnt take too long to remove the intake.

    No need to remove the intake - get the socket.
