Oil Pressure Sending unit?

Hello, ive been having some problems with my oil levels lately mainly just seemingly irregular readings so im gonna replace the Unit.

But where the heck is it on a 94 3.8 LX.

Any pictures or input would be very helpful thanks! (now i gotta go back to the store forgot i dont have any Teflon tape left.)

Look behind the power steering pump.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.

Oil pressure sending unit does not tell you the oil level, but the oil pressure in the engine. A 93 LX oil pressure gauge is probably just telling you that it has oil pressure, not the actual pressure.

As you are looking at the engine from the front, is it on the left side of the front timing cover? If so it is the oil pressure sending unit. The oil level sender would be in the oil pan, if you have one.

Ya sorry i was saying the wrong thing, the oil level sender is above the oil plug.

Ya looking at the front of the engine is just to the left of the alternator well kinda down to the left.
