1984 oil sending unit

Hello. new to the forum--first post. Bought an 84 Berlinetta 5 speed v6 w/38k miles one month ago. Runs perfect. Noticed very high oil pressure reading on oil gauge. took to local Chevy dealer where they replaced the oil sending unit. Drove car home three blocks and parked it. Today I go out to drive the car and noticed the clutch pedal is moving from side to side and the hood release lever does not work. Question: Did they have to remove the pannels above the pedals and work up under the dash to replace the oil sending unit? They were the only people to touch the car and it seems strange I now have these two problems out of the blue. Thanks.

They would need to get to the back of the oil pressure guage in order to hook up the sending unit. Take it back and have them finish their work that you paid for.

Thanks for the information derhunter. I'm just about through with taking cars to other people.

That's odd, the switch is electrical and screws into the block.

If the hood release cable had a problem, they may have had to remove the hush panel under the dash to get the hood open.

As far as the clutch pedal movement goes, I have no idea, it's possible it's a coincidence. Stranger things have happened.
