I have a pretty steady leak on a 2000 buick regal lse. It is small
when sitting still but substantial when driving. I believe the problem
may be the opil sending unit but I am not certain where it is located
or the best way to get at it. Any suggestions? KNow where I might find
the schematics for the engine?

these pearls of wisdom...:
Any reason why you believe it is the sending unit? First suggestion would
be to look for signs of leakage on the engine. If it is substantial as you
state, you should easily be able to see where it is leaking from. Have you
looked under the car and all around the engine compartment?
I would also suspect a double gasket or leak at the oil filter. Could
also be a sender. However the only way to find it would be to actually
look for the leak.
Easy way would be to wash the engine down good, let it dry then start it
and look for the leak. If you need more help dust down suspect areas
with baby powder and look for the wet spot.
