Question Where's the oil pressure switch? (pix appreciated)

guys i need your help. i need to know where the oil pressure switch is located because I need to replace it. pix would be greatly appreciated as well as instructions. i'm assuming this is the problem. it smells like burning oil, my light flickers, and it looks like oil was spraying on the bottom of the oil pan. if i'm wrong i'd also appreciate other ideas. i used to b about a quart low every oil change but ive had to put 3 quarts in in 3 weeks. thanks ahead of time

Underneath, drivers side, about 6 inches to the rear of the oil filter, 1/2 way up the block. It will have a green plug with one wire coming out of it.

^^^ What he said

To remove/install you need a open end wrench or a deep well socket. You'll need to drain some oil out before you remove it.

You don't need to drain oil when you do it. Only a little would really drain out, just enough to slighty soak up a rag.

You also need a special socket for it because it has an odd nut on it.. I bought some cheapo $7 one at Autozone since I'll probably use it a whole 3 times in my lifetime.

I spent like $15 on that and used it only twice. Why can't they make anything easy? they should have made it so w could use a regular socket.

A fits-all works good on a 2.7...only because there is room to get at it. You absolutely need the oil sender socket for the 3.2/5.

When me and a buddy replaced my radiator, we was putting the hoses on and then we used a huge socket to (not any type of oil sender socket) just a deep socket!! can't remember which size thought :(

ok heres an update...it was leaking like crazy when i pulled my car in to my garage. then i replaced the swtich with an aftermarket because the factory one i bought i left in my lil sisters car 1.5 hrs away. let the car idle in garage for bout a minute and no leaks... take my hour and half drive, and its pouring again. Question: since im assuming the aftermarket one didnt fail already...is it possible i didnt tighten it enough and because of engine heat and expansion that it started leaking again? and...anyone got the exact size and/or torque rating/specs (ft/lbs) so i know its in there tight enough. oh and light comes on at 1000 or below if that means anything.... thanks a lot guys
