I have a 2007 5.3 Chev 1500 with a low oil fuild warning coming on randomly with no low oil level. Goes away for several days and return only on engine start up. Checked each time and level is full. I want to replace the sensor but unable to locate it.

    Screws into the side of the oil pan on the passenger side. Should be beige or light yellow colored plastic with a blue or black two-wire connector attached to it. It will not be real tight, and has an o-ring seal on it. When you put the new one in, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN it. It only needs to be snug, not torqued.
