Can't make out a thing in that picture but I know it is located just above the oilfilter.
I believe there is a special socket available to remove and install a new one.

Just grab a large Crescent wrench. Once you break it loose, you will be able to remove it by hand. Have a rag handy and have the new sender ready to go with some teflon tape on the threads.

2000+ it'* a regular six point install. No need for the special oil pressure sensor socket like the earlier models.
