Default removing crankshaft sensor???

I was going to go through all the things that could be the leaking oil. I was just going to do the things from my other post, but Is there any speacial tools or procedures I have to do to get the crankshaft sensor out? Does it just pull out? Then how would I go about seeing if the cam seal is leaking if the crank sensor isn't the problem? Thanks

dual or single cam? alot of times the oil sending can be the cause of a rear leak....

try jacking up the front of the vehicle and putting stands under to prevent it from falling, take a flashlight and look just above the oil filter, thats where the crank sensor is, and about a foot to the left is the oil pressure sending unit... look around and give it a full look over is theoil coming from higher up? could it be a headgasket??

usually the crank sensor is 1 10mm bolt and a lock clip for the plug, then its just a lil twisting and pulling to get it out..... dont pry too hard you might break the sensor off in the engine which = a bad situation

if your oil sending unit it takes a special wrench to get it out

to get out the crank sensor, just remove the 1-10mm bolt and just wiggle it out....

if the cam sensor is leaking then you will see oil around or under the sensor
