A deep well socket or the special socket made to fit the sending unit.
You can get either one when you buy the sending unit at the parts store.

Why the oil light came on and off, I had change the new pump,pick up screen, and change the oil sending unit ?


Most likely the oil pump light will come on if the oil pressure is low. This light is based on a pressure sensor. Your oil pump is likely not operating to deliver the required pressure. Check that your pump is installed properly.

I have a 99 Ford F150 with a 5.4. It will start and run fine, no codes. After 2 minutes of running the oil pressure goes to zero. Shut off the engine and restart the oil pressure will go up to normal for...


Start by verifying the oil pressure sending unit. It is quite common for a bad sensor to act erratically, such as you have described. Acquire an oil pressure gauge and install it in an appropriate location, perhaps in place of the oil sending unit if a more convenient location is not available, and run the engine. Observe the pressure on the test gauge at various RPM and over a period of several minutes as the engine warms. If pressure on the gauge is good, then you have a problem either with the oil pressure sending unit, in the circuitry, or instrument panel gauge. However, the problem is most likely the sending unit. Note: the sending unit often requires a special socket, which may be obtained at any auto parts store. Also, if you don't own a test gauge or unwilling to purchase, many auto parts stores now rent tools, others even loan tools provided an adequate security deposit is made.

Low oil pressure


If the engine is not making any noise.It is probably the oil sending unit that is defective.If you want to be sure you will have to install a pressure gauge and check the pressure when the vehicle is at normal operating temperature.If it is above 10 psi then replace the sending unit.It is located on the back of the motor on the block by the left cylinder head.You might need a special socket for it.Hope this helps.Good luck.
