    88 k5 350. Oil leak right above the oil filter. Coming from a fitting that has a round over around it. about 3 inches high and 2 inches round. cover does pop of but I cant see what is under it??? wire coming from the top of it and into the same place the O2 sensor wire is going. Cant find anything about this in the Hayes book. My guess would be for the oil pressure sensor. Which would explain the oil pressure fluctuating. (spell check that lol) How di i replace this?? any one else now about this little thing or waht it is exactly??? Thanks

    That sounds like the oil pressure sender...you engine has TWO oil press. sensors...one behind the distributor and one above the oil filter...the one behind the dist is for the ECM (it is a switch that will cut power to the fuel pump if OP is less than 4psi...The one you referenced that is above the filter is for the gauge..Just go get a new sender and screw the old one out and replace w/ a new one...I believe it screws into like 1/2 or 3/8"NPT hole in the block...
