Removing the crank and cam position sensors is simple. Lot of crap to get off to access them, but nothing to it once you get there. On the four cylinders the hardest part is getting to the connections under the upper intake manifold. Easiest to just take the upper manifold off and set it aside with everything still connected to it.
Crank position sensor should be 1280 ohms, + or - 10%
