    I'm 99% sure you need to pull the intake. Might also want to grab a oil pressure sensor while you're at the store...9/10 people break them while removing the intake manifold.

    what codes are you seeing? What symptoms do you have? A few of the things you listed there aren't necessary. Some of them are maintenance items that you're going to need to replace on any higher mileage used car. Sand blasting the under carriage wouldn't really be necessary and what was wrong with the coil springs? The PCM in these cars is a pretty durable unit. Not that one can't go bad.....it just doesn't happen very often. If you suspect a pcm issue the first thing I would do is pull the connectors and look for a corroded pin......that's more common than a pcm going bad.

    also a bent pin on the wire harness are another common problem. It can be fixed to as long as you are very careful.

    No offense man but most of those things minus the pcm are general maintenance things that will go bad with time its a 14 year old car so its expected... anyway yes you need to pull the intake to replace the sensor its just held in with one 10mm bolt. be careful not to break the oil pressure sender when removing the intake

    All set the cam censor was cracked. Will have the car all done tomorrow. Pretty sure the cam censor is what was causing the two cylinders to skip and misfire. Finishing up tomorrow new exhaust brake lines springs and upper control arm and new rims and tires pretty munch just put alot of new shit in it
