      The oil pressure switch is located on the driver’s side of the block near the front, about level with the water pump.

      One way to check for sure is to hook up a mechanical gauge to where the sender/switch usually goes, but with how cheap senders are, most people just replace the sender. You can find a picture of it’s location on the 4.0L here;
