There is a dipstick for the transmission it is located near the back of the engine on the passenger side. It it not obvious at first and is bolted down. The pressure gage on the dash is for oil pressure.

The oil pressure sensor is not hard to find. It's located on the passenger side of the engine. When installing the new sensor you may want to add some rtv sealant to the threads to prevent any oil leaks.

Do all the lights stay on even after driving around for a few minutes? Whenever I disconnect the battery on mine some of the dash lights will remain on until I drive for a few miles.

I don't recall if anyone on this forum has replaced the timing chain and tensioners but somebody has on the club frontier forums. Good luck with the repair!
