    2008 5.3 oil pressure sending unit location....????

    Father in Law is looking to replace the sending unit in his 2008 Chevy truck.
    He cannot locate the sensor.
    I been looking all over trying to help him out.
    Most answers, pics, and schematics show location on intake where a distributor would have been formerly.
    Is this still where it would be in a 2008???
    Appreciate it, so does the Father In Law

    OPSU is behind the intake manifold on the passenger side near the firewall. It is an easy job if you pull the intake but a PITA if you leave the intake in place.

    I passed it on.
    Appreciate it.
    Sounds like he had already been looking in that general area, guessing it must be buried pretty well by the PITA.
    Says that he is fearing it may be an actual oil pressure issue, not just sender but going to replace it before more drastic repairs.
    So he may be taking it in for a deeper diagnosis anyways.
    THANKS for the info ! ! !
