Then do what 89coupe mentioned. Why would you want to plug it?

LOL Sorry, after looking at my notes it is a 20mm 1.5 pitch plug. You can get them at Oreily's for $2.99

You know you'll get the low oil level light to activate and not ever go off, don't you?

No it won't. The wire on the sensor is a ground. Once the oil level get low, the sensor grounds, on the other side of the low oil light in the dash is a 12v source. Sensor grounds and completes the circuit. Light comes on. Keep the sensor wire from grounding and no light comes on.

You need a 20mm 1.5 thread pitch plug. The plug is not called a "pitch plug". "Pitch" has to do with the amount of threads per inch. Our Advanced has a whole section of these things. If not, go to Home Depot or something.
