I have a 2004 Ford E350 with a V10 6.8L gas engine. I need a Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor. Motorcraft does not list it. My local (large) Ford Dealer parts counterman concluded the engine must not have that part. But, there definitely is one on my engine. How can I get the part number (and part) when my Ford contacts say there isn't such a thing?

Where is the old part? I have seen few late model Ford sensors without an OE number on it somewhere that could be cross-referenced by the dealer, e-catalog interchanges or just by doing an Internet browser search on the number. Also, have you checked the ALLDATA and Mitchell-type component locators? Still "funny" how the names of sensors are not universal, but this makes our job more challenging and can make you stand out if you are persistent and keep trying.
