I wanted to know if replacing the crank sensor on my Acura would be easy labor and what is a good price range I can expect to pay? I just want to get a good idea of how long the labor would take. Its a 98 acura r.L.

Do you

The timing belt and camshaft pulley has to come off so it is not an easy job. The labor time should be about 3 hours.

Some work requires more than nerves. You need the correct tools and equipments. Honda/Acura engines requires special tools for holding the crankpulley or a high torqued impact wrench. Any mistake with the timing belt installation can mean disaster. This job is NOT for the normal DIY. You need to be an experienced one.
