Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
1996 ford explorer 5.0L, 4x4, auto I have no oil pressure and no oil leaks, can it be anything other than the oil pump?
The oil pressure switch (also known as the oil press. sending unit) is located above the oil filter, mounted on the engine block. It is a $6 part in my area, just by chance if that's all that's wrong, I'd replace it. Hopefully it is that simple. If not, time for an oil pump? If u remove it, and crank the engine, there should be a steady flow of oil, if not then it's the pump. Good luck.

SOURCE: no oil pressure
It could be the sending unit,but it could also be the high pressure bypass on the oil pump itself,the sending unit will be on the side of the motor usually close to the oil filter.
