Changed it today not a bad job at all just took me a while because I was trying not to break anything and was not sure what to expect. No special tools needed. I think most of this job was just electrical connectors. Was happy to see everything looked like it was in pretty good shape under the valve cover.

I think it was booked by ford for 1.5hrs.. I don't see how they can do it that quick unless there is some easier way to get to it that I missed..

you've gotta move a lot of crap out of the way to get to the valve covers, including the oil tower and glow plug terminal..

you DO need an odd sized wrench to get in there- I think it was 1 1/8"? Maybe it was a 1 1/16".. I had several just below and several just above that size, but not the one I needed.. you only get one shot to seat the thing as the washer on the sensor is a crush style washer/gasket.

once you DO get to it, it is all of thirty seconds to remove and install a new one.. then reverse procedures.

I can't believe FORD/IH didn't engineer a redundancy on that part.. that is the only means the engine has to monitor actual injection.. if you lose it, you go into a strange unannounced limp mode w/ limited power, and lose some functions such as cruise control.. They could easily have put one on the opposite rail, too, and had a fall back plan.. and why in the hades all those harnesses are under the valve cover is beyond me, too..

Yea I agree 100% I used a 27mm deep well socket. Yea but I could see it taking only a couple hours if you have done it enough times
