Well let me give a little back ground first...I just had Ford replace both head gaskets, oil cooler, and egr cooler under warranty. They had my truck for a week and a half which isn't too bad, but it absolutely killed me for work. But here is the problem... I live 75 miles from this dealer (and can't afford to be without my truck again) and when I got home the needle on the oil pressure gauge dropped all the way down and "Low Oil Pressure" is displayed on the message center. I talked to the guy over the diesels at the dealer and he said if I made it all that way home and its still driving fine (which it is) then the sensor harness probably didn't get buckeled in securely after they put the cab back on. So, does anyone know where this is located so I can try and fix this and hope like hell I don't have to bring it back to them and lose another day or 2 of work? Thanks to all in advance.

I'm thinking if they replaced all 8 head gaskets your in trouble. The rest of us only have 2.

That aside look around the base of the oil filter housing for a loose plug.
