ICP sensor replacement help

Can someone please help me on how to get to the sensor? mine is a 2004, but built in 08/03. So that means it's located Under the turbo. I have the manual, but it's telling me that the ICP sensor is supposed to be located on the right side on the valve cover. I want to get to it and see if it's starting to go bad because the truck started "sputtering" driving on the highway and acting like it wanted to stall when accelerating.

I've done a search the last couple days and only found thread pertaining to the '04 setup. I did see some pictures of where its located, but nothing about how to actually get to it. I'm hoping there's a thread that I'm just not seeing that has step-by-step instructions, but I'm somewhat mechanically inclined also, so I can try and tear into it until I break something.

Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have the 03 model. I take my turbo out to replace mine but I've heard you can go from the driver side underneath by taking the heat shield off above the transmission at the back of the motor. My stomach muscles are not strong enough to get to it hehe lol.

How far down the motor is it? I did try to locate it under the truck, but I'm like a blind hog trying to find an acorn.

It's right at the back of the motor about mid-line. The IPR valve is right behind the turbo then the ICP valve is just behind that next to the firewall. There should be a heat shield back there also, unless a previous owner removed it.

Ive taken mine off multiple times in the last two weeks (turns out it wasnt the issue). I started to take all my stuff off the top and thought there had to be a better way. I went underneath and now I can have it out and back in, in less than 5 mins, with out taking anything off. I lay under the truck, head toward driver side feet toward passenger. Put a bright light on top driver side of motor shining toward the back. If you look up from underneath where the transmission and motor meet you can see the harness. My arm squeezed up there no prob and im not a small guy. Then to remove i use a 1 1/6 deep socket, universal joint, and a 12" long extension and DUN.

Awesome. I'll try again tomorrow when the suns back out. I'll give an update when I take it off. Thanks for the advise!

I've actually not been able to even mess with it yet. I'm hoping to take a look at it by next week. Got this issue plus replacing a bunch of front end parts to tackle. Once I do, I'll definitely give an update.
