My1stGT, has your car triggered any CEL light of any kind?

From what I can find, you might trigger one of these three ODBII errors:

P0196 - Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
P0197 - Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) Sensor Circuit Low Input
P0198 - Engine Oil Temperature (EOT) Sensor Circuit High Input


Those three have to do with the EOT calculating your oil temp. I'm assuming that it will throw an error after it realizes that it cant get a temperature.
no i havent thrown any codes as of yet and have had it on a month or so now ,but as a_penguin did i may go ahead and hook the stock up as well ,just in case ya know. let me know how your install goes

will do. Just consider some errors don't necessarily throw a CEL, so if you had your car scanned, one of those *might" come up, even though they don't necessarily trip a CEL. Either way, if it has been like that for a month now, I wouldn't even bother. If there was a problem, you would of known by now.

What does the EOT (Engine Oil Temperature) sensor, which the GTs do not have anyway, have to do with the oil pressure switch?

Regarding the switch, all it does is link to the instrument cluster; it is not monitored by the PCM that I can find...

I know this is an old thread, but I found it when searching for a location to install an oil pressure gauge. Can one of you detail the parts and location of the install?
