Need help identifying a part.

I have an oil leak and it's coming from what looks like a sensor or plug. It's directly above the starter. I have a Chilton's but I just can't find it anywhere in the book. Any help is appreciated. Here's a picture.

I looked it up and it is the oil pressure switch. Now I just gotta get the damn thing off! Thanks a lot for helping me out.

They make a special socket for it, sometimes a crescent wrench works.

Hit up Auto Zone and they will "lend" you the socket
