Hey y’all!! I’ll keep this short and sweet.
My fuel gauge is always PAST “E” and my oil pressure gauge is always on “L”. Now I have mentioned before that when I bought my bronco I let Steve83 go through it top to bottom (had for a month) and fix a lot of smaller and bigger issues. He also installed the fuel tank access panel so replacing the fuel sender should be a breeze I hope. I’m assuming the oil pressure gauge needs a new sending unit also and I hear that then”special tool” from Napa is well worth the $8 to use to get it out. Do you all think these will fix the issues?? Can someone tell me or show me where the oil pressure sending deal is located?? Apparently Steve replaces the float on my fuel sender and said it worked but since I’ve picked it up, it hasn’t so I’m leaning to replace the sending unit and hopefully be done with that. Thanks in advance!

I'd ohm things out before buying new, or verify/research if the gauges are like the temp gauge and they peg on full/high when grounded?

I haven't read this yet but it looks good.


I like this one too

So on parts geek, one motorcraft sender is $15 and one is $25. They appear to be the same except one says “with light”. Is that what I need??

Only if you have the indicator lamp in the dash, do you probably need the "with light". Just a guess.

Steve worked on your bronco? Is he as snarky in real life!? Lol, I'd say you lucked out in terms of mechanics!

Sure do miss his knowledge, that's for sure.

Ahhhhhahahahahaha. Yes he is very “confident” but EXTREMELY knowledgeable. I assume I don’t have the light. Never noticed it.

I have another stupid question, do I have to drain all of the oil to change the oil pressure sending unit or is it OK to do without doing that?

Just make sure the oil has had time to drain back to the pan, and you should be fine. No need to drop the oil out.
