1998 s10 crank sensor

I have removed the small bolt holding in the crank position sensor in my s 10 pickup and when I pulled on the end of the sensor to remove it the plug end broke off. now what I have is the rest of the sensor broke off in the block flush. Any suggestions on how to remove the rest of the sensor?

Try to screw in a screw throe the top and use pliers to pull it out. If it will not come out try a little heat just enough to start melting the plastic sensor and it should pull out...

PB Blaster or something similar may help. As mentioned above, maybe you can screw something into it and pull it. It is usually very helpful to twist them a bit before attempting removal. Sometime the plastic cases get brittle due to the heat, it makes them susceptible to breaking. If it is accessible you could try drilling a small hole in it and thread in a self tapping screw. I personally think heat is going to case you more problems and would save it for a last resort.

i'v used heat many times after i get the screw in far enough. if theirs an o ring on the sensor the oxidation and a brittle oring makes it hard to remove the heat softens the o ring (if the sensor has an oring)
