: Oil pressure sensor on Northstar

05-27-04, 12:17 PM
I'd like to change my sensor but can't see how to easily access it. Are there any tricks to removing it? It seems the plug is almost inaccessible.

If you've done this please carefully describe how you did it, thanks!

Did you remove the plastic block out panel between the radiator support and the engine cradle?? If you do you can see/reach above the engine cradle front crossmember to access the oil pressure switch.

Yes. I can see it OK from under the car, I just can't figure out how to get a hand up in their to disconnect the plug. The space available appears to be too narrow.
