You betcha, glad to be of help! I know when my sensor went out, I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked for a short period of time, then quit again. Since I replaced the sensor I've had no issues.

And to give credit where it's due, I linked the diagram from mopar1973man's website

Download a shop manual. You will need it somewhere down the road. It's not very often these engines loose oil pressure, but man that's a big risk to take. Even used engines are not cheap to buy.

Check with your local auto parts stores. Nothing special about the sending unit.

Finally got the new oil pressure sensor today.First off, didnt have the right size socket to take the old sensor off nor to install the new 1, picked up the socket to install the new 1 which is 1 /16 deep socket for oil pressure sensors.Turns out that socket does Not fit the stock sensor in my truck, after 3 more trips to napa after trying to find the right size socket to get the old sensor off it turns out its a size 32 deep socket,Took the old off installed the new 1, oil pressure now working again,what a royal pain in the it was to get to that sensor.Thank you all for who helped and put their 2 cents in.

Just replaced the oil pressure sensor on my '99. Got a used sensor on ebay for $26. FYI the correct size deep well socket for stock sensor is 1 1/4 inch. The 32 mm will work but is a little loose. Slide under the truck on the driver's side, reach up just in front of the starter, and the sensor is right there. Took about ten minutes.

Some are just gifted on replace and others can't get started.
Remember, every job requires a new tool purchase. Part of mechanics creed.
