    What year? They are usually near the back of the engine, sometimes near the oil filter.

    Looking into the engine compartment from the driver’s side it is all the way back where the engine meets the transmission (bell housing), below the rocker arm cover.

    buy one they are easy to replace once you have it them you will see what it looks like and most are by the oil filter but some are up on top on the back of the motor a round the disturber

    look along the outer sides of the block…there should be either senders or switches already threaded into the block. most engines no matter who makes them have auxiliary oil gallery plugs in the block. usually 1/8 inch pipe thread. sometimes 1/4 inch…easiest way is to find one of those plugs or senders/switches, unscrew it…if coolant comes out, you’re at the wrong hole….look for wires or lines(if a mechanical guage is being used) coming off the engine block…
