Default Oil light flickering when cold

Light stays off after engine warms up. I'd like to start by inspecting the oil pressure sensor but cannot find its location in the service manual or online. Can someone tell me where it is located or maybe have a diagram? Is there s DIY on verifying oil pressure with a gauge?

Thanks - I found that diagram also but it's still hard to figure out the exact location and I've looked persistentanly. If you can give me a reference like "next to the oil filter" for example I might be able to locate it.

A friend mecanic says it's either on the front or rear of the block
