Ranger 3.0L Component Locations

Hi All, I had to take a picture of the location of the oil pressure sending unit on a 3.0L today, and I thought while I was at it, I would take pictures of the
other "popular" components:




Oil pressure sending unit (analog, not "switch"):




DPFE sensor:




IAC valve:




MAF sensor:




TPS sensor:




Coolant temp sensor (gauge):




Coolant temp sensor (PCM):

Takeda, by your pics what year ranger are you showing? I need to replace the sending unit that operates the dash guage. By your pics what one am I looking for? What color wires are attached to it? Thanks.

It is a 1999. Depending on what year yours is, the gauge temp sensor will only have one wire, the PCM coolant temp sensor has 2 wires.
