Does anyone know where the oil sending unit is located on a 2001 ranger v6 4.0 ?

Check out this thread from another forum. Doesn't sound like it's easy to get to.

Wow, wonder how much difference there is between a 96 v8 and a 2001 v6?

It's on the drivers side front by the front cover towards the oil pan. It's usually got a white looking plastic cover on it. It's hard to see and if I remember right you'll only get onto it from underneath and you may have to pull the skid plate off. I rebuilt one for a buddy after he overheated the heck out of it and remember thinking, hope I never have to replace one of those. Good Luck.

Thanks, I found it. It's a little tough to reach but I think I can do it.

I'm sorry, but I have no idea how you would rebuild an oil sending unit.

Don't you just replace them?

I bet he was referring to the engine. Sending units are throwaways.

Just replaced the sender and it appears to have corrected the problem. I'll know for sure after it sits overnight. 13/16 spark plug socket and a short extension from underneath the truck worked out great.
