General Maintenance & Repairs - I believe I can join the "I broke my oil pressure sensor" crowd...

Just did the LS6 manifold install Saturday morning and everything seemed to go great, didnt think we broke anything. When I started up the car, my oil pressure read 100+, fully tached out. So obviously I broke that stupid POS oil pressure sensor. I did a search, but there are no good pictures out there of it and where it is. I "think" its near the back left of the manifold but I'm not 100%. Anyone got good pics or shed some light?? Even IF i replace the sensor, whos to say I wont break it again installing the maniold. Can I replace it with the manifold still on??

It's the vertical sensor on the drivers side, just to the rear of the intake. You can get a special socket to replace it at the auto parts store and won't have to remove the intake. If it's pegged maybe you didn't break it - make sure the electrical connector isn't loose or something.

There's a pic of the sensor in this thread: www.ls1tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=762670
If you break it you get 0 pressure

so you think its unplugged or something?? its reading FULL pressure, like 100+ and doesnt move ever...

I'd just reach back there and check it - or you can do a visual with an extension mirror and a flashlight.

I thought if it was broke it's full pressure. My friend's broke, tached out on his vette, replaced, went back to normal. Now it's full again and has been for almost a year (I told him to change it, i dont think he cares).

I also read elsewhere that if it's tached, then its broke, so who knows. It's screwed up somehow so I gotta git er done and fix it...

I broke mine during my h/c swap. I pulled the intake and thought "hmm, maybe I didn't break it." Then I came out the next day to work and it was broken in half. lol.

If your gauge is pegged it's broke. I just got through this mess not long ago.
