In a recent thread regarding strange behavior of the electronic oil level display, someone replied with:

Maybe a bad oil level sender, part #996.606.150.00, lists for $59.98. Kind of a PIA to change but not that bad.

I quickly added to the thread that I have had similar problems on my 2000 Cab and asked the responder if he could be more specific on:

1. the physical location of the sender, and

2. what is involved in changing it.

I haven't had any luck in getting a response to that thread or to a PM, so I'm starting a new topic in hopes of getting some help. Of course I can check the dipstick, but it just bothers me when something does not work.

Have you tried to search? Lots of discussions like this one

Thanks for the link .... but notice that this thread (and the original I referred to) concern oil quantity / level .... not pressure.

I have searched RennTech without any luck.

Sorry I know you sent me a PM on this and I did not have the time to get back to you. There is no specific instruction or diagrams in the manuals, and PET only has a picture of the unit, not the location. Also took a look at the Youtube video of the Boxster engine rebuild and they show the components going on top of the engine but I can't see this one with precision. I know it bolts onto the top of the engine and extends down into the oil pan, but I am not sure where.
