Question about Cars & Trucks
I am attempting to change the crankshaft position sensor in my 2.7L kia optima. I have located the sensor on the engine block close to the transmission just above the starter (which I just changes last week). I have small hands so I can actually feel the sensor from the top by removing the fans and the heat shield from the exhaust manifold (but can't see it). Now here is my problem I'm using a 1/4th inch drive with an extension and a 10mm socket, assuming correct size from other forums. There isn't enough clearance between the bolt and the side of the sensor to fit the socket onto the bolt.

Hi Jcetkt, Make sure the park brake is fully engaged. Chock the wheels and prepare a long extension with the correct size socket spanner, (A box wrench set onto a long extension) Slide under the vehicle and loosen it from the bottom. It may be a good idea to have a pal guiding the wrench from top side. Regards John
