Oil Pressure Switch

I need to locate my oil pressure switch and replace it. Can anyone tell me where to locate it?

Lets narrow down the leak.
Does the vally on top under the fuel bowl have oil in it. If not then check the turbo for oil leaks and the EBPV area. then repost...

Also the oil dipsticks have leaked at the attachment point so check that too.

I looked in the fuel bowl area and just checked around my turbo no leaks there?

Well if its not the HPO line with a small pin hole the my guess would be the oil galley plug on the top rear of the engine. Those are a pain to remove. 1/2" Check the rear seal on the oil cooler too. You can see it by laying under the truck and its located just above the oil filter (kinda). If its the rear galley plug up top we can help you get to that too, hopefully with out stripping the head on it.

Sorry, after further review it looks like the oil is leaking from a plate on the bottom of my transmission, "there's like a plate there and it looks like it is coming from inside of there, like its leaking from there" clearly, I'm confused. Need help.

I found the leak, back of drivers side valve cover, there is a half inch square that my half inch socket fits into and the whole thing looks like a cap, obviously I'm new at this, sorry. What is it? How do I fix it

Are you talking about one of those plugs in the picture I put up???? If not, I have no idea what you are referring to.
