Be sure the replacement oil pressure switch is torqued correctly to 15 lbs (as per specification).

Use the brass-body construction pressure switch, and not the aftermarket aluminum ones.

The standard OEM capacitance design of oil pressure switches fail when the connection between internal plates and films fracture.

Use the oil pressure switch type which has piezoelectric construction for improved reliability.
