Christopher Severance: Great video my friend. Thanks for including the tools and sizes. And BTW...ignore the haters!
okeefe58: I was with you, until you started calling inanimate objects "this guy, "and that guy". I refuse to watch videos where people are so annoying. THEY ARE PARTS - NOT "GUYS"
1oldiesbutgoodies: On my 01 4.3 removing the distributor cap, it took a star size T20. I thought it was a T15 so when I tried it I broke the star wrench teeth. Just a heads up! Try both sizes first or you may ruin your wrench.
zackman9999: Very helpful. Thank you
MrByaahh: step by step would've been nice. in any case, the only thing I pulled off was the oil sending switch..didn't have to remove the cap or wires or anything else.
Barbara Corfield: I was actually seeing if there was a video on a chevy corsica and this process.. would this be the same way???
david mayer: this guy sucks he said a video helps but this isnt no video just crap
LiveMcDowell: Holly hell. 120,000k +. Just noticed this. Dang.
Spectrum5GHz: You could have put more oil in the vehicle and the manufacture recommends. When was the last time you had an oil change? Was the filter replaced? Did you change the oil yourself? If you know the correct amount of oil is in your vehicle then you might want to consider replacing the oil pressure sending unit. Always consult with a trusted and certified mechanic.
Johnny Morales: Is that what i need if my truck peeks high at all times?
jay Guze: could you tell me the name of the piece that the switch is screwed onto?
diana mireles: do you think that i should change the oil pressure sending unit, because i already change the oil pump like 7 months ago, and angain its broken
bmusic44: On a 1997 1500 4.3 V6 ... I myself just completed this job today 1/11/13... I have had a lot of people tell me where it was located, one went as far to say remove the distributor itself! I found your video most helpful!! Less then 2 hrs... done! With 115,000 miles.. since i had removed the distributor cap, i replaced it and new rotor as well... good idea, it needed it! Oil sending unit "Socket" very helpful! No more fluctuating pressure, and more importantly, no more oil leak from the unit :)
matt0942: I have a '99 Dodge Ram and the oil pressure gauge will drop to 0 sometimes when I come to a complete stop.It will only stay there for maybe a second and then go back up.Does this sound like the sender unit needs to be replaced?
FP: Why did you have to change it in the first place?
Roger B.: i meant to say it's hard to crank now and when the oil pressure goes down the engine quits.i mechanic friend told me its the oil sending unit .i hope so.
Roger B.: i have a 1992 chevy van with the 4.3 and i guess it will be in the same spot.the van was running great then all of a sudden it would crank and when it would the oil pressure would go down(looking at the guage) and then it would shut down.and it is now hard to crank.i hope its' the oil sending unit and not the oil pump.if you have any advice i would appreciate it.thanks.
James Key: Not bad but you need to show the actual location of the sending unit and describe its location...does it twist right or left....how to unclip the units wire?, how tight to do the replace, did it work?, solve the problem...mostly your camera should be on a tripod and more wide angle..but very worth watching..thanks
matt weingartner: idk about older chevys but late 90s, the fuel pump shuts off if the oil pressure is too low
MrTarpon98: does this same instructions apply to installing it on a 97 tahoe
