let me guess your oil pressure light has been coming on or the oil pressure itself on the guage is high. These **** sender units are garbage. Luckily it is a quick easy minimal cost fix. I had to replace mine.

Mine is fluctuating a great deal and then will drop to zero which will then trigger the indicator failure message then go back to reading high. Does this sound like the sender?

Either a loose/bad connection or a bad sender in most cases.

I'm experiencing the same problem with my 2002 911. I get the indicator failure message and the gauge goes to zero and then bounces back. Is this a critical fix or can it wait a week.

How easy is the repair for a really technically challenged person? Can anyone attach a photo of it's location.

Thanks in advance.

I replaced the sending unit and the problem is gone.:D You have to have patience and work by feel, but I didn't have to modify any tool. I did remove the right rear wheel and heat shield in order to break loose the sending unit as I couldn't get enough leverage reaching through the a/c hoses.

I now have 2.5-3 bar at idle when hot and 4-4.5 bar at highway speeds and no fluctuating needle.

Thanks for the information.

Tony
