As I recall it's the oil pressure switch.Verify by turning on the key,watch the oil light,disconnect the wire, the light should go off.If a replacement is needed,get OEM.

appreciate it I was thinking it was that but wasn't sure I am looking for the rubber cover as this one is gone and if Im replacing that would like to reolace the sensor at the same time. Thanks again Allan
