Use a large spanner/socket. IIRC its a 1 inch or a 1 1/16th inch.

You can get generic oil pressure sender removal sockets at repco.

Its a baugger of a job, yes.

if is the same size as the I6 then it is a 1-1/4" deep socket!

They normally have a tapered thread so the more they go in the tighter they get so thats probarbly why its so hard to remove.
