no oil pressure

If the oil level is not low ( I assume you mean low oil level light, not low oil pressure light), try tapping the oil pan with a rubber mallot. Some times the float in the pan will get stuck in the "down" position when you drain the oil during a change. Tapping the pan will sometimes dislodge the float, allowing it to rise to the level of the oil.

A sender is a pretty cheap fix.

Did that fix the o/p problem? It's probably the same problem on the ranger.
