Default PT Throwing Error Codes

Hey my name is Sam, I have a 03' PT GT and i've always had a steady check engine light on with code P1188 on since i bought the car. Recently it's been throwing out a P0522 error code as well. Anyone know the causes or have any possible solutions?

P1188 EOT Sensor Ckt. High Voltage
P0522 Engine Oil Pressure Sensor/Switch Circuit Low Voltage

Lots of problems with that sensor. Change it and be done with that code.

not a very efficient way to change it in this how to, but you can see the sensor on the engine:

HOW TO: oil pressure sensor replacement

Thanks guys I'll probably take it to my familys local mechanic and see how much it would be to replace the sensor. Hopefully replacing this will be the end of it ^^,
One thing though I'm trying to find the unit online right now for purchase would it just be called the oil pressure switch or is it called oil pressure sensor?

CREWZIN! You make things so simple! I was expecting to read through about 5 or 10 pages of a forum topic, but no, here you are saying "just do this".

Thank you so much! I will order the part right now and post an update as soon as I replace it... and drive it for about 100-200 miles.
