My buddies oil pressure light is coming on and off randomly, so we're thinking first step is replace the sensor, as other threads have stated. They also stated that it's located under the alternator and between that and the power steering pump. Okay, I know where the alternator is, but I don't know where the power steering pump is or what it looks like. I don't have a haynes manual or anything like that (yet) so I'm hoping someone can throw some pictures my way so I have a better idea of what to look for. I'm going out to go look at the car in the meantime, but any help is appreciated. Thanks!!

If the oil is fine and you change the sensor and still have problems, remove the oil pump assembly and tighten its internal screws. Be sure to use a new o ring on the pressure side and cleant the block and pump well before re glueing it with fujibond or equivalent.
