Location of oil sending unit on 1990 ranger 2.9


Here's a link to your oil pressure switch,here's the part.As you can see there are 2 types,one for light and one for gauge.
  • When the oil pressure is either high or low it will either turn the oil light "on" in the dash or move the gauge to the extremes
  • Undetected high or low oil pressure can result in internal engine damage and/or gasket leakage

IF OIL SENDING UNIT IS BAD COULD IT CAUSE THE MOTOR TO TAP AFTER RUNNING ABOUT 15 MINS.


I seriously doubt it.
But if the oil pump or bearings are worn out, you could loose oil pressure once the engine warms up.

Will 1990 ranger run with oil sensor disconnected


Short answer: Yes

the oil sensor unplugged will either show a light on your dash(Or oil gauge won't work, not sure if you have a gauge!)

The O2 sensor being unplugged will make the truck run in open loop, so it'll run rich, but it WILL run

Could be low oil level, a bad sending unit, or actually low oil pressure due to a worn oil pump or worn bearings.

My 1990 ford ranger when the motor is cold it runs fine but when it warms up it spits and sputters so bad it barley runs


Check the egr valve. Then the O2 sensor(s). When it warms up it goes into "closed loop" using the O2 sensors..if bad it will run lean or rich or hunt for both.
