Here's a picture of a 2006 E-series van. I believe all V-10 are located in the same location, it's just infront of the motor mount. I removed the sending unit and installed a tee. I installed the sending unit into one side and the connection for may mechanical gauge into the other, works great. You should be able to see it on the drivers side front of the engine. Hope this helps.

Hey guys, do you recall what the thread size was?
I'm guessing 1/4 NPT?

I have had a sender on another vehicle leak out the end where the connector is before. I had to replace the sending unit to fix it.

Duh! Thanks looks like it'll be easier to get to that thang from the front. How much oil loss once that is out?

van V10 oil sender location

The blue area appears to be a replaced freeze plug.

Removal of the oil pressure sensor is not going to drain out all of the oil as long as the engine is not running and the vehicle is not dangling suspended with the front end pointed downward. Some will drip out if the engine is not running, and it may be messy, but it will be an inconsequential amount.
If the engine is not running.

I just replaced mine. It kind of surprised me how much oil came out. When I replaced the oil pressure switch on a trailblazer not very much came out at all. Luckily with this, I had the replacement in hand and got the new one in quickly. Lost about 1/8 quart I'd say. What's great about these compared to the GM one is that you don't need a special socket to get it out. Since the electrical connector is smaller than the actual bolt, you can just use a regular 21mm wrench. A 21mm deep socket will fit on the switch, but I couldn't actually get a wrench into the cramped space, so I just went with an open ended wrench.
