How NOT to remove Oil Pressure Sensor?  When you work until you are completely exhausted, you lose your temper.  When you lose your temper, things get broken.  When things get broken you lose your temper even more.  When you don’t have the right tools, you lose your temper even more.  And finally, when you go to the store, and buy the wrong tool – and realize it when it doesn’t work when you get back, you start breaking even more stuff.

A 27mm deep socket is NOT enough to get the oil pressure sensor off a GM 5.3 Vortec LS Engine

If only I had the proper tool for removing the oil pressure sensor.  At least, I think that is the right tool.  I have not done reassembly yet, so I don’t know for sure.  Anyhow, I included this video in the series to show that not everything goes as perfect as it does on ½ hour car shows on cable.  This was NOT a hard step.  I was just getting ahead of myself, I wanted the motor out and this little oil pressure sensor was about the last thing in my way.  I was tired, and I should have wrapped it up hours before.  If anyone actually reads this, learn from my mistakes.  Just walk away!  If you’re tired, it ain’t worth it.  It’s gonna cost me around $40 for the part and $8 for the socket.
