My oil pressure gauge is always above 3 on my 88 560SEL. Soon as I turn the ignition on it goes to 3, when the engine starts it stays, and even after driving it stays. I am assuming the sender is bad or the guy that sold me the car rigged it to hide low oil pressure. What I need to know is where is the sender on the engine?

88 560SEL
67 European Beetle
69 Conv. Beetle
00 Dodge Durango
1988 560SEL, Green, Chrome wheels.
2000 Suburban, 20" wheels, DVD, wood grain dash (wife's car).
67 Beetle euro, Lots of Empi parts.
69 Beetle conv, 1980s cal look.

Sounds like the sending unit is bad! On the right side of engine, in the oil filter housing. Easy replacement!
Part number should be 006-542-94-17 & list price is $62.
