Before replacing an oil pressure switch, a professional mechanic will first determine that the oil level and condition are okay, that the oil light electrical circuit is operating normally, and most importantly, that the oil pressure is within the manufacturer's specifications.
The oil pressure sensor may also be referred to as the "oil pressure sender," "oil pressure sending unit," or the "oil pressure switch."
Symptoms of a failing oil pressure switch can include:
- Oil pressure warning light on
- Oil pressure light flickering
- Oil pressure light doesn't illuminate at all
