4.6L V8 oil pressure sending unit location

Hello everyone!
I've searched the forums but can't find information on the location of the oil pressure sending unit on a 4.6L v8 in a 2002 Explorer. It sounds like something I can change myself, but I want to be sure to get the correct sensor. I'll be grateful if someone can confirm the location of the sender on this engine.
Thanks,
Bob

I am not sure on the 4.6, but on every ford I have worked on (V6 and V8s) they are near the pan on the drivers side toward the front of the engine. They are not hard to change out. Although on some they are hard to reach. I cannot say for sure on yours.
