2009 pontiac G8 GT 6.0L . I have replaced the oil sensor and screen with OEM parts and changed the oil and filter. I use 5w30 amsoil full synthetic extended life 12000 mile and change the oil filter every 3000-3500 miles and the oil every 7000 miles. The sensor and screen were replaced at 97311 miles and now I have 99795 on it and the check engine light comes and then goes out without any type of a pattern. I would like to put a mechanical type of oil gauge but do not know where to plumb it into. Any ideas or help appreciated.

Above the filter, drill and tap and add your guage fitting .( copper tubing / not nylon)
