Heck of a first post. Won't bother to welcome you to the forum. I'm sure we'll never hear from you again.

It's under the car. Just unbolt it, and stand back.



When your done cleaning up, look up the word "FORUM".

As I said, this is a forum. Not really a place to just throw a question out and expect and answer. People introduce themselves, tell them about their car, and not treat it as though it was just a site to find answers. Lots of friendly people here that talk and communicate about their lives and the cruiser.

You asked a simple question without any information about yourself or your car and I gave you the same kind of answer. There's more to it than what I told you but it will get the job done.

OK, ....It makes a BIG mess when you take the old sensor out so be warned. There's no way you can get the old one out and the new one back in without loosing a lot of fluid. Have new fluid handy to fill it up afterwards.

CREWZIN tells it like it is.

Simminons,

Your car is over 10 years old. You should drain as much fluid as you can before you remove the sensor so you don't have a ton spilling on you. I blew mine out with compressed air. You should fill with ATF+4. Mine took less than a quart.

I'm not exactly sure but the repair manual calls it the "power steering fluid pressure switch" so maybe that will give you an idea what it does.
