Chevrolet Impala Problem

Engine Affected: 3.9L V6
Average Mileage: 109,500 mi (100,000 mi - 122,000 mi)
The engine light was on and the car seemed to be running fine. That is when i went in to hook it up to the diagnostic machine. We found out it was the oil pressure sensor. You do have to order the part through GM, but it is only $10.00. my husband fixed it in about 10 min.

I have taken my 07 chevy in for oil filter housing unit to be replaced and less than 24 hrs of getting car back the engine light is on. Technician tells me that oil pressure sensor looks like it went out due to sensor are very sensitive on gm model cars.

Car running normal. Check Engine light on, not gas cap or fuel type. Also not going into 3 cyl mode. After a lot of internet research and codes ran by mechanics advised to change oil pressure sensor, I bought one and will install very soon. I had car only three weeks so this was a scary scenario but I am confident that is the problem and will be able to fix for $30 if I install myself.
