On the 2002 windstar 3.8L it's located under the alternator bracket.
To see it or replace it.
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove the serpentine belt from the alternator.
3. Disconnect the battery cable lead on the alternator and connector.
4. Remove the 3 bolts holding the alternator and remove it.
5. Loosen the 2 bolts shown ( the bottom one only needs to be out a few threads not as far as shown). Totally remove the top bolt.
6. With a pry bar or large screw driver place behind the bracket and pivot the alternator bracket towards you.
7. Pull connector off switch.

Oil Pressure Switch Operation:
Information relay unit for the indicator light or gauge on instrument panel. It contains a diaphragm that responds to changes in oil pressure. When the oil level is over a pre-set limit, the diaphragm opens the switch, turning off the light. When level is below the pre-set limit, the dash light comes on. In later model cars, if the oil pressure drops, the switch turns off the fuel pump, to stop the engine and limit damage to internal parts. Oil pressure switches can be grouped into two categories, units for electrical gauges and for mechanical gauges.
Oil pressure can be checked at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. To get accurate results from the test, make sure you follow the manufacturer's recommendations and compare your findings to specifications.
Testing the Oil Pressure Gauge
Pressure can be tested by temporarily installing an oil pressure gauge in place of the sending unit. Before testing, look up the oil pressure specifications for your vehicle in the appropriate service manual.

the first o2 sensor is located just underneath the front bumper of the van, the second is located directly underneath the center of the van, kind of where the center console would be if you were inside the van. i hope that makes sense and i hope it helps.
