    The flat rate time for this job is 5 hours. Its not the hardest job but you really have to get into the engine a bit. The sensor is located under the timing belt cover. Once you get it off its easy as a bolt and a connector. Getting the cover off will be key. Its a job that unless your comfortable with lots of loose part you may want to consult your mechanic.
