How to remove FPS on 3.2L engine

Post by Xwalt » Wed Apr 17, 2019 2:40 am

I've bought multiple Torx wrenches and screwdrivers and it is impossible for me to unscrew the Torx 25 screw holding down the Fuel Pressure Sensor. The gap there is really small and when I finally manage to get the bit into the screw head the screw won't budge and ends up slipping. I'm afraid I might strip the head on the screw.

Any suggestions?

Torx bit that goes into a hex shaft. Use a wrench the size of the hex shaft to break it free. Spray the torx head with a "rust remover" and clean it out the best you can. Make sure the torx bit is in more than half the depth of the hole. If you can wedge something against the bit to press it into the hole, it might help gain purchase.

Sometime praying helps, otherwise you buy more than you planned on... best of luck.

If you can't remove the Torx screw you can remove the fuel rail to get access.
