Removing crank shaft position sensor

Any tips on removing this? It is a pain so far, and I cracked the first one trying to get it out. Thanks.

I mangled mine when I went to check it... LOL ... So needless to say after I was done looking at it I needed to buy a new one. Sometimes they come out with some constant pulling.

There is a rubber O-Ring that sets in pretty good. You need something that can grip it and pull with constant pressure... If you let off the pressure it just snaps back into place. I tried to use a screw driver on the one in my truck and that just bent the tab for the bolt that holds it.

They come out... just a PITA sometimes.


SPEED SAFE, AIR RAM

On my jeep I had to take the starter loose to even have a chance. It was very tight, but some cursing and constant arm contorted pulling freeed mine unharmed.

not a problem on the Dakota.... starter is on the drivers side. tho it is still a PITA cuz of the clearance and the AC drain is also there.

Mine was froze in to the point that I had to use a screwdriver and hammer to chisel it away.....completely. Mine was a bitch. Cleaned the hole out good with a wire brush and still had to drive the new one in with a block of wood and a hammer. I have had to drive them in before and remove the oil pan to retrieve them.

Did you take any pics? I'm throwing a code and I believe I'll have to replace this soon.

A liberal shot of penetrating oil while twisting and pulling and these things come out in a hurry....
