Did you check the wire that plugs into the pressure switch? I just replaced my sending unit too and the wire/connector was really dirty.

Some people have complained of low oil pressure when using certain filters. Fram comes to mind. But at the same time, there are some who've never had a problem with those.

I'm not suggesting your oil filter is part of the problem, but you may want to try something else next oil change, just to rule it out for sure.

It couldn't be any easier. I can literally change my oil in 5 minutes. Don't even need to jack it up.
