Oil pressure light comes on at idle, goes off at about 1000 rpm. Oil level is full. Where is the sending unit located on this model? Is there a way to tell if it's the unit or pump? Car has only 28000 miles on it

THanks

It’s under the intake manifold, accessed from the bottom. I’ve seen quite a few of them leak from the center and into the electrical connector. I believe it’s covered under the 10/100 warranty, definitely covered by 5/60 if you’re still within it

Thanks.... Dealer replaced it under the warranty..... I'm one of the unlucky or lucky owners, depending on your viewpoint, who has a Theta2 engine now under lifetime warranty. Dealer said that alone would cover it, but car is still under original warranty.

if you have a Theta 2 series engine you should be eligible for the lifetime warranty. If your car is still under the original warranty . the oil pressure switch would be covered by either. I opened a case on the "Hyundai .com site". They told me to see a dealer. The dealer said my engine, the 2.4 L now has a lifetime warranty. There are other engines in the Theta 2 series that are also covered. Check with your dealer. I have included the article from the Korean Times. Hyundai doesn't publicize this warranty

The VIN number on your car, located on the dashboard, which can be seen thru your windshield, or it can be found on a label on the driver's door gives a lot of info. Autozone , for one, has a Vin decoder page, which breaks down all the ViN info including the engine type. Given the year, you probably have a Theta 2 engine . If it;s a 4 cylinder, you definitely a Theta 2. The easiest thing is go to a dealer or trusted mechanic. ...good luck
