Default Engine Rebuild Problem

My cousin recently did a rebuild on his engine in a 99 forester. He pulled the engine out himself had it sent in to have the heads done re assembled it and put it back in. He has been having some problems with it.

#1 It starts up just fine but idles fluctuates strangely.
#2 Temp gauge fluctuates unusually fast.
#3 Fuel gauge no longer works.
#4 But the main problem is that the "At Oil Temp" light comes on and flashes, from what I was reading that indicates that the computer needs to be dealt with and to take it to the dealer...
#5 Probably has something to do with the flashing light, but the transmission slams into gear really hard almost as if it is slipping then catches, it will fluctuate wildly between the gears it is really odd.

#6 I noticed there was some sort of sensor/grounding wire that was not re attached but for the life of me I can't figure out where it goes. I was wondering if it had anything to do with that. I took a picture of it below. But other than that most everything appears to be properly re attached.
