    Hi,
    Seems a common problem, but I've got both oil pressure and water temperature gauges playing up. Can anyone tell me the location of the senders for these gauges on a 6.2 diesel engine? Thanks, Rob.

    Oil pressure I belive is on the drivers side close to the back firewall.

    The temp is on the drivers side near the front of the engine in the head. Look just in front of the exhaust manifold on the driver side and you should see it.

    Oil pressure - tan

    Coolant temp - 1 Yellow and 1 black

    This is off my 1983 wiring diagrams. I will go out and check my own rig for these colors.
