WHAT IS THE SENSOR ON THE OIL FILTER. IT HAS 3 WIRES. IT IS ON A DIESEL 7.3L

2000 Ford F-350 • 89,000 miles

An animal tore it off the wiring to it and I need to find out what it is and if I can get a new plug end that fits into the sensor. Thx

Oil filter is a spin on filter. Is this at the bottom of the motor or the top?

It on on the oil filter adapter that bolts to engine just above the filter

Oil pressure switch. You have to call ford and see if they make a pigtail for the oil pressure switch. If they dont you have 2 options, replace the engine harness or go to a junk yard and cut one off another truck

Hey thanks. Exactly what is that switch for anyway? Dan

Oil pressure sender unit. It needs to function for monitoring oil pressure.
