Striped out oil pressuer sending unit housesing

I started my truck (2006 F250 6L 120,000 miles) the other morning to go get a Christmas tree. The temp was in the low 40ís. Started normal. After 4 or 5 min to worm up we pulled out of the driveway. About a mile down the road 35mph oil gage droped to 0 then came back up to normal. Did this a few times then stayed at 0. I pulled over oil was level full had someone pick me up and take me to get new oil filter. Came back about an hour later. I installed new filter started up and pressuer was fine. On way back home same thing all over again. Does anyone have any ideals on what to check?

Well new development. I was changing the oil sending switch. To see if that was the problem. When I unscrewed it it striped out the threads. So Is there an easy fix for this or do I need to take the oil filter housing off and replace the base?

Sorry for your troubles especially since that gauge/sensor only reads 7 psi just about useless. The pcm doesn't even see it, the circuit goes straight from the sensor to the gauge.

No matter what you do you will have to remove the cover whether you try to tap it out and put a bushing which I am not shure they even make that size.

You will want to keep any shaveings from getting in the cooler. I have drilled out a few and threaded to 1/8 npt and plugged it off. The sensor thread is some kinda metric.

Just a thought, Go to the hardware store pick up a hardened bolt same size (7/16-20 ) drill the hole thru it measure the depth of the stripped out hole so when you screw the bolt in it doesn't bottom out. Cut the head off so you have like a stud. There is plenty of threads left in the hole to screw to. stick a coupler on the bolt and the pressure switch on the other end. It will work if your handy. And also make the hole a little bigger then the pressure switch hole. Macgyver trick.

you would have to replace the oil filter base. If that's not an option some jb-weld would probably hold. I would use some kind of threadlock on the original threads then epoxy the sensor into place.

just an idea, this isn't the first time I've heard of this
