ICP SENSOR REMOVAL

Ok I got oil in my ICP sensor so I want to replace it but how the heck do you get it off? It doesnt seem like theres enough room to get a wrench on it and you cant get a socket on it. Do I need to remove intake and then intercooler pipe to get more room or what? How did you guys get to it to get it off? The new one I got you can get a socket on but the old one in the truck you cant its different.

I used Channel Locks to get my old one off and the new one has the nut on the top which makes it nice and easy

Call Snap-on (or other store) and get a 1 3/8 Crowsfoot. Cut off about 1/2" of one of the wings - that will allow for it to fit over the electrical connector. You will be able to reach it from the top of the engine and a long extension.

Fit the crowsfoot on the ICP to get a feel for what side you need to cut off.

This works.

Good luck.

I removed my alterator and then had enough room to use a wrench.

Not to jack this thread, but please tell me how you knew the ICP sensor was bad? My truck engine has to spin maybe 7 to 10 seconds before firing so I was just wondering if ya'll had these same symptons...

removing the charge i/c pipe should give you enough room to work a wrench in there

If its junk just put a small pipe wrench on it or vice grips. Channel locks might work too.

The new ones have a hex head on top so you can use a socket.
