1995 ford explorer oil pressure gauge not working

There is a sending unit that is probably bad. It is located, in most cases, near the oil filter. It is a $10 part and simply screws in and a wire hooks to it.

Ford Falcon 1997 oil light sometimes comes on for a couple of minutes. Checked oil, and all good!

In order to troubleshoot this problem correctly,you need to clean the motor first.

An intermittent/shorting oil sending unit is the source of the problem.

You need to make sure it's not an oil leak into the oil sending unit first.

After you clean the motor then look for oil leak.

Also make sure the wire from the oil sending unit wire is not touching the engine block.

Oil sending unit is cheap. It's an easy job.

Change it at your next oil change.

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.

Where is the oil pressure switch

The sending unit is going to be down by the oil filter. It should have some wires running to it. If you don't have enough room to access the sending unit easily then you can purchase a special socket to extract the old sending unit. Good luck.

Where is the oil pressure switch on 99 ford explorer

You will find the sending unit next to the oil filter underneath. There will be a couple of wires going to the sending unit. Unplug the wires. You might need to purchase a special socket to remove the sending unit if you don't have easy access to the part.
