    Does matter, as if you know what gauge it is, you know what it is reading.

    Was there ever another wire connected to it? There's very little you can run with only one wire...

    It's an oil pressure sender/sensor that was obviously installed by a caveman by the amount of Permatex gooped on it.

    Well given that it's an oil pressure sensor, it was feeding to the oil pressure gauge. What does your car say for oil pressure? Normal or messed up?
