ok so my oil pressure sensor went out.I searched online for info on how to change it.seen posts from it is easier to pull the intake, or you risk cut up hands from trying to barely reach in to get to the sensor.all with an average replacement time of 45min to a few hours depending on if you wanted cut up hands or not...i"m here to say those posts and suggestions are are BULL...I changed my sensor in less than 10 min. no cut up hands, no pulling the intake. all on a hot motor.YOU MUST install the extension after the socket and universal is put onto the sensors, and the ratchet after that, and must be taken off that way too....TOOLS NEEDED:

pull +pos battery cable off. with the 10mm wrench/setuppull the plastic engine cover off.wrap a couple wraps of thread tape onto the new sensorhop up on the core support with the 1/2" tools and new sensorfind the VACUUM hose on the brake booster follow that back to the engine, where it meets a bracket the sensor is directly below the hose.reach under the hose and around the bracket to unhook the wires for the sensor

NOWhook the universal to the socket, and place it onto the sensornow hook the 6" extension to the universaland finally hook the ratchet to it.YOU MUST install the extension after the socket and universal is put onto the sensors, and the ratchet after that, and must be taken off that way too....

NOW angle the setup so the extension is as close to the brake booster vacuum hose and loosen the sensor until the ratchet stops clicking on the reset(means the sensor is loose enough to turn by hand)pull off the ratchet, then the extension, then the universal and socketremove the sensor the rest of the way by handnow take the new sensor with the thread tape put on itand reach back and start to thread it in, get it as far as you can by hand(mine went all the way down to the washers by hand)NOW place the socket and universal onto it, then the extension, and finally the ratchet.YOU MUST install the extension after the socket and universal is put onto the sensors, and the ratchet after that, and must be taken off that way too....angle the setup so the extension is as close to the brake booster vacuum hose and tighen the sensor(((**** NOTE:::: you DO NOT need to put tons of force on the sensor that is why it is thread tapped and has double washers on it a good snug fit is all you need, DONT monkey it on....remove the ratchet, then the extension, then the universal and socket.YOU MUST install the extension after the socket and universal is put onto the sensors, and the ratchet after that, and must be taken off that way too....reach back behind there again grab the wire connector, then feel around on the sensor for the "shark fin" on the sensor, line it up with the tab on the wire connector and push it on.your done with that part. you can get down off the trucknow take your engine cover, make sure the 2 rubber grommets are on it, if not they are still on the mounting studs on the engine(pull them off and put them on the cover)put it back on,
now install the battery cable back on and tighten down with the 10mm.you are now completely finished.
