Replacing the oil pressure sender


I have reason to believe that a bad oil pressure sender is causing a slight oil leak in my 96' Honda Accord. 173,000 miles. Is this a difficult job?
I can change my oil and plugs, etc but I'm no mechanic.

If you can get to it, not sure where it is on this vehicle, it is an easy fix. The sender will be screwed into the engine block with a wire connected to it. Just disconnect the wire, unscrew the sender, put teflon tape on treads of new sender and screw it into block, connect wire. There may also be an adaptor screwed into the block that the sender goes into, make sure this adaptor is may want to pull it out and put teflon tape on it also.
