The oil switch is located on the passenger side of the truck in the back of the engine. Look for the transmission dipstick, then feel for it between the transmission dipstick and the engine block. It is hidden pretty well, but a socket wrench will fit to take it off. The new part uses a 1-1/16 socket, the old part for some reason was smaller, I think 13/16 inch. Hope that helps.

The oil pressure switch is under the power steering unit. The easiest access is from below the truck.

I have a 2001 Ford ranger 4x4 with a 4.0L SOHC engine. Supposedly the oil pressure switch is located at the upper passengers side in back of the engine block. I have yet to even be able to see let alone replace mine. Typical Ford engineering; crappy!

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I BELIEVE that is ( 40 to 60 PSI at 2,000 RPM ) for the oil pressure on a 3.0 liter V6 engine in a Ford Ranger
