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?

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

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