    Oil Pressure Sensor

    I broke my OP Sensor clean off while installing my LS6 Intake, I thought I was being careful... Guess not! The threaded part is still inside the fitting, and it broke off flush with the fitting... I can figure out how to get it out without having pieces break off inside... Anyone had this problem?

    Saw your earlier posts, guess it was the OP sensor after all. Where did it break off, in the block or above where the sensor socket would fit on?

    Should be able to just put a socket on it and unscrew it. I guess I'm kind of missing how you broke it off. Did you brake it flush with the block? That's how I broke mine the first time I swapped an intake and I just put a socket on it and unscrewed it.

    Yeah, its a PITA to get that sensor off. I did the same exact thing.. then struggled trying to find a huge, deep socket to fit over it for installing the new one. Come to find out they make a specialty tool for it at the parts stores.. just look next to the spring pullers ect.
