I have a 95 jeep GCL. I can get my hands on the crank sensor but I cannot get any tools on it. What do I need to do to get it out of there?
Do you
have the same problem?

CAUTION: On some models, two bolts are used to secure sensor to transmission. These bolts are specially machined to correctly space the sensor to flywheel. Do not attempt to install any other bolts.

Thanks but I know the procedure to take it out. I need to know how to get in there. The actual space is no where near as open as the illustration would lead you to believe. Cant get a wrench or a ratchet in there. The only thing I could think of was lowering the engine but im hoping for an easier way

Question. Are you having a problem with it cranking? The best thing I can find with my problem is the crankshaft sensor. I couldn't see how to get to the bolts either. Have you had any luck?

They made it both ways so you will need to look here is what the one bolt looks like. Use a flashlight and you should be able to see it.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken
