      Good Day Folks

      My 2012 Explorer Limited 3.5L V6 has started to stall in the last 7 days when idling. It also nearly stalls under heavy braking and complete stop. When it stalls 'Low Oil Pressure' warning message appears.

      The oil level and condition is fine.

      I was going to start by eliminating possible causes, first being replacing 'Oil Pressure sensor'.

      I located this last night tucked above the oil filter and A/C Compressor.

      Could not see a way to change without removing A/C compressor, seems bit extreme for such a usually easy job.

      Any advise from you good folk who have changed the Oil Pressure Sensor in the Past on a 2012 Explorer.

      Thank you
