PostSubject: Oil Pressure Gauge Switch / Sensor   Wed Dec 27, 2017 8:21 am

Mine is leaking oil so i was going to rockauto to order another one, but I see several different part numbers from the same company, all different prices, but all for a 3800. Anybody know which one is "best".

FWIW I do have an L32 but i think the plate is bolts to is part of the filter housing so it would have come off my L67.

For 96 S/C Riv:

$22.79

For 05 GTP (L32)

Was able to answer part of my own question, the 05 GTP (L32) type sensor is 2 terminal, the rivs have 4 terminal connectors. SO PS279 will not work with a riv.

Also going to take a guess that since the riv has a dash light and not a dash gauge for oil pressure I should be going with the PS270 sensor.
