No, either one will not work. You need the one from the driver's side of the radiator support, with the blue/white and blue/yellow leads. The other sensor, typically found on the passenger side of the radiator support, is for the explorer's EATC system (if so equipped). The two sensors are not identical, nor interchangeable. EATC will not work properly with the OHC sensor, and the OHC will not work properly with the EATC sensor.

I don't know what you have wired in your truck, nor how well it functions.

I do know what is in the Ranger/Explorer Workshop Manuals, and what my personal observations and tests show on the two parts. Why would you think that Ford would create two "interchangeable" sensors, with different part numbers, different color coded wiring, and different resistance measurement curves?
