Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Crankshaft sensor snapped in half while being taken out. there is little to grab to even pull it out. the sensor was very hard to pull out before it broke and now it seems to not even budge
Thats a common issue for that vehicle,Your gonna have to remove the oil pan so you can push the sensor out from the inside of the engine block.Make sure you clean the oil pan and the oil pickup screen and install a new oil pan gasket before reassembly.

Disconnect the wiring harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor by pulling the tangs on the side of the connector away from the plug and pulling the plug off the sensor.
Unbolt the sensor's retaining bolt, using the appropriate socket. Remove the sensor and its O-ring from the block.
Clean the mating surface on the block with a rag. Ensure that the new O-ring is on the new sensor. Install the sensor and tighten the retaining bolt firmly. Do not over-tighten the bolt, as you will damage the sensor.
Plug in the wiring harness connector, ensuring that it snaps into place.
