    Hi do you mean the oil plug to remove the oil from the engine?/sump! if from the sump it is at the back end of the engine although this would depend on the engine type once the skid pan has been removed you can generally feel it.

You have lost the ground connection to your dashboard. Find a new chassis ground point, and try supplying ground directly to the ground rail under the dashboard. This will likely fix the problem.

Speedometer is jumping all-over

You better check the connector to the speedo and cluster, either you bent a pin or damaged the printed circuit, or the connector is not locked properly.
