It is normally on the bell housing, near the top, by the engine, and they cannot be repaired. If it is bad it would need to be replaced.
Thanks this was very helpful.
this sensor was a pain in the ass... its located aroiund the oil filter... once you find it, the angle is difficult, to pull out... be prepared to get you hands..dirty...
Whay problem were you all experiencing that you found this to repair?
