It was 10 min. to remove sensor, spray with cleaner and reinstall.
Just make sure to use a sensor safe cleaner.
I was going to suggest a cleaner. There really isn't that much to them.
My wife loves that I am confident with our vehicles. Oops, the gear selector cable broke? $5 for one that I pulled out at the junk yard. Hard to find because the guys generally just cut the cable when they pull the transmission, but I did find a slightly shorter cable that only required a bit of rerouting to get to work.
Same with window regulator on the Jeep and Durango. Not hard to do, just go to the junk yard and get one!
With 180,000 our Durango is looking to get a new steering rack and possibly a pump as well. For now the stop leak stuff is working, but I've had to add it twice. No leaks, just hard spots and stiff steering for the first spin of the wheel.
I think it's fun to fix cars!
