if you don't have a oil pressure gauge in your present cluster, and you just have a light that comes on to say that there's low pressure, you need to replace the oil switch with an oil pressure sender. No idea where it is located in your car, but it will be stuck in the side of the engine block somewhere.

I think.

I would not replace the switch with a sender, as that will loose your factory oil pressure light! Might cause issues.
Rather get a t-peice, remove the oil pressure switch, fit the t-peice, and fit both the factory swithc and the sender for the gauge into the t-peice, that way both can run.
Somewhere like enzed can supply t-peices, but you'll need to take the factory switch and the new sender so they can see which threads you'll need.
If it's anythign like the SOHC 4.0L, it's unde r the inlet manifold and above the oil filter and a b**ch to get to.
