      Hey guys. I just need help to identify this part. I may not have to replace it, but the wire connector snapped off. Can I remove it without getting blasted with coolant/oil or should I take it off while I have them both drained (I'm changing oil and coolant soon anyways).

      First pic is taken from bottom of engine ( you can see main crank pulley and oil pan) second pic is a close up.

      That's your oil pressure sensor, you can take it off ,but don't start it up with it off.

      That one is plastic, if the plastic was broken you would lose oil out of it as soon as you started it up.
      Had one break on me , (oil all over the place).

      I'm not sure either. I will probably just replace it. $7 for a new one.

      I took a better look at the picture and it does seem to be cracked. I would replace it also.
