Can't get socket on oil pressure sensor

908 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mark.brodell
I'm replacing my oil pressure sensor and I cannot get my socket onto the sensor b/c the hose adjacent to the sensor is obstructing the socket. Whats in the hose? I'm afraid to pull it off.

How else can I get the old pressure sensor off?

Good idea on taking the oil cooler out. Before I went down that road I stopped by autozone and they had a thin profile oil pressure socket that fits both 1" and 1 1/16". I managed to wiggle it on and got the sensor out.

Thanks guys.

2 days late here...If you still have the intake manifold off, change the oil cooler/pre-heater housing. They are the most failure prone part on the engine and made of plastic. There's a fair possibility of cracking it when re-installing that sensor or they just crack on their own or warp, then leak.
