for How you can install the oil sending switch?" I take it that we are talking about an oil pressure switch wich located near the oil filter?

The right way to do this with a special socket or boxwrench, sometimes they are easy to reach and sometimes they put up a fight. Make sure you have the right sender remove the old one, install some plumbers tape on the thread, finger start the sender and tighten it, (not too tight) start the engine and check for leaks

No, a sending unit is for a gauge, and the switch is for a warning light.

I am looking for the location of the oil sending switch on a 2000 F150, or where I can see a diagram or picture of it. Thank You

You need to remove the oil sending unit and install a oil pressure gage in it's place then start engine and read gage. Iwould tell you were the sending unit is but you did not say what you are working on.

I believe they are the same. I just purchased one and they referred to it as a switch when I called it a unit.

It developed an leak and then for whatever reason sealed itself. Replace the oil pressure sending unit.
