Thanks. I got the lock off but while lifting the plug to pull it off the plug broke. I had just put a stubby flat blade in the slot and was reaching around the plug and the top of the plug lifted up and fell off, must have been cracked. Now I get to have the plug replaced. Hopefully it will stay on ok without clicking into place until I can get it into the shop. I think a lift will be needed to change the plug.

did you break of the nut part of the sender? I think the nut part is pretty near the base. do you have the special socket?

Both the red slide-tab and a squeeze-tab release lock the connectors in place.
In UptownSport's picture, the squeeze tab is seen above the wire. The red stops the squeeze from working.

remove the red tabs- There's no reason for them.

Hi All,

I found this thread very useful when changing my own oil sending unit and figured that I would post a photo I managed to snag of it while attached to the engine. Took me a while to realize I had to push that little green tab as well lol.



There is a tube of heat shielding which felt like cardboard and duct tape. I just slid it off by bending it around a bit to make it flexible and then slipped it back on after I had replaced the sending unit and re-attached the connector.
UptownSport and BosMutus like this.

This was awesome guys...thanks a lot.

Bought a 2004 Cruiser for my daughter and had to replace this oil pressure sender. This thread saved me a lot of time.

I actually found it easier to get to standing just a bit to right of the driver's side headlight, and could then get at it with my right hand, me being right handed :-)

A lefty can get to it from the passenger side.

I hate bumping old threads, but clearly this one's gotten quite a bit of traction over the years as somewhat of a "how-to".

It should be noted that Mopar sensors work best in this application. Many have reported that the parts store brand sensors will crap out shortly after replacement, and others haven't had issues. If you're the type that doesn't usually get underneath your car and want to do it once, order the Mopar sensor and call it a day. A great resource for direct parts is RT Partsco.
