Thank you for the info.I did removed it yesterday. I have to remove the transmission dipstick part to be able to remove the sensor. Have to go under the car to remove the two bolt holding the dipstick. While under the car I saw lots of oil. It must need a new cover gasket replacement. Waiting for the part to arrive from rockauto.
Got the new part and tried to installed it but after 45 mins of trying to put it in and try to aligned it, I gave up. what am I doing wrong? the old part fit in so easy but the new part from beck/arnley part number 180-0289 just don't want to go in. I also used a mirror to see the angle and I did the right angle but still no luck.
Pay close attention to how the ears of the coupler are clocked. I think that they are off-set to allow only one position match-up. You may be 180 degrees out.
You are correct. It goes one way only. A new seal makes it difficult, but it's necessary. That's where my major oil leak was. I had to remove the cover screws to line it up. Putting the screws back in is a pain.
