    It can be a bad oil pressure sending unit. You shouldn't run the engine of course, until u know for sure. Any new or unusual noises? Level is ok?

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.

While sitting in park, my 1999 ford explorer with the 5.0 v8 has good oil pressure on the gauge. After driving for awhile the presure starts to flux really bad. The presure remains good while driving at...


maybe it's ur gauge! you can get it pressure tested at ur local auto shop for pretty cheap i think! Sounds to me like its nothing major as long as you know you got oil pressure! ( check temps while driving) BUT i wouldn't worry to much about it as oil pressure tends to flux as car is driving/ getting warm and oil gets lighter. Worst case scenario is a leak in the timing cover gasket and whoever replaced it should cover it. Do you see an residual oil near it? or on the ground when its wet and you pull out of your parking space? Hope this helps!

Can a oil sending unit possiblely be the cause for an oil leak


Yes it certainly can. Because oil has to pass into the sending unit under pressure in order to work. If the sending unit develops an internal leak it can leak a large amount of oil in a relatively short period of time.

Fair Price for fuel pump and filter replacement on 96 Ford Explor


the labor manual for a 1996 explorer fuel pump gives you 2.1 hours, if you figure in a labor rate of $65 dollars per hour your at $136.50 the cost of the pump is 141.49 is advanced auto price for the average person, list is 219.39 which is what most shops charge so by my figures based on what my shop would charge you should be some where between $300 to $400 depending on there labor rate and i did price the most expensive pump that advanced auto sells for that model so i would say there bill was way to high.

The HPOP (high pressure oil pump) is right under the filter housing. There are 2 lines that distribute the oil to the cylinder heads. The o-rings on those fittings go out. Kit is available from Ford or International. You will need a special wrench to get to the fittings though.
