Now that I have done one (which took a long time to do), I could do another in a couple minutes easy. It's just took time to figure out the best mehtod of getitng to it as it's in an awkward spot and all that. You need a 1" (I think socket). I used a ratchet with the longer extensions and bendy uni joint thingo.
It's near where the oil level dipstick. It's just a matter of unscrewing the sender and screwing in the sensor.

I would recommend going out and loaning or buying your self the deep socket you need to do it properly. Getting the old one out isn't that hard but putting the sendor in, which is alot longer, is tricky and prone to breaking without the proper tools.
I picked up one for about $20 and made the job quite litterally 30 seconds to do!

You need a deep socket. I couldn't get the sender out with out it. I got a King Chrome Heavy Duty one from Sparco for $15.00. They were out of stock of the normal ones which are even cheaper.

From memory, 1", but might want to get someone to confirm that!

The socket size is 1 1/16", and you will need a deep socket. As has been said with the right tool the job is very easy
