Hi,

I am trying to replace my Crank Position Sensor
The sensor i bought

can I got the sensor out (behind the oil filter, by the way PITFA!) and it is wired up and under with steal like wire ties.

I am about to say F' it and cut the original wire out of the way because I can not seem to cut the wire wraps.

My issue is, I THINK the wire is the correct one. I am pulling the one on the driver side firewall color gray, next to the red and green wires.

If I am the correct area, I am going to take photos and post them because i have seen others needed an idea where this bloody stupid thing is.

If you have a photo or a diagram from a repair book, that will be most useful. i will be changing out the spark plugs while i wait.

follow up again.

Thinking about keeping the old one there laying down, put everything back together with the new wire rerouted somewhere else and seeing if it runs.
