The reason the shop won`t fix it is because they do not have any engine skills at all as far as trouble shooting or repairing trouble codes or the sensors. The shop I used is a very small shop that does mainly labor type stuff that requires very little mechanical experience.

I think I have a snap-on scanner borrowed for tomorrow only so That may help in solving my problem. But thanks for the reply and I`ll check on the back of the block tomorrow for that sensor.

Thanks for your reply.
