Do you think that the new sensor will fix the problem?
You can look at the wire colors at the connector.
I'd use an analog gage in place of sensor. See what the oil pressure shows,if it still bounces around, I don't think the sensor is the problem. Also, check engine compression. Another isuue could be the oil pump,but, if the engine is wore out, replacing the oil pump probably won't help anything.
