What kind of part is this!!!! Need help asap!

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for my oil pressure sending switch to replace it cus my gauge is jumping all over the place and when I looked under the PS wheel well this is what I found.




The connector plastic piece broke off so I can't get the connector to stay in there, gonna have to tape it but I don't even know if this is the oil sending switch or something else.

Any help is appreciated!

Oil pressure sender is on the rear of the PS head. Use a mirror.

Does it only flicker at idle speeds? My point being if it isn't idling properly, that flickering oil pressure gage (switch, in reality) could be representing an actual oil pressure. I can make mine do that by letting the clutch out too fast and the Scanguage shows idle speeds below 500-ish when it occurs.

Hi Earl,

It flickers when cruising down the street or idling at a stop light.

Alright well I just taped up that knock sensor real good since the plastic connector broke off (damn ford). I bought a new oil pressure switch at vatozone and gonna put it in after work. I also located where it's at, looks like right next to the cam sync sensor.

I just replaced my oil pressure sending unit and it wasn't exactly easy..

Way up under the driver's side engine block. Took a lot of tedious effort.
