Not sure why it's such a common problem on the 3.1s, but glad you got it sorted out.

Use compressed air in the breather hole to blow the sensor out.

It is a plastic housed coil with a pickup winding. So a screw won't go into it. You don't have to worry about it falling in, but it will hit the middle of the crank.

I've done the compressed air trick quite a few times and it works well with no side effects (blown out seals etc)


Chris A, thanks a million for the compressed air idea!  ;)

I had this problem with the crank sensor not coming out.  I also thought I was screwed but thanks to the ideas on this forum I was able to get it replaced without dropping the pan.  Just the air wasn't enough for me though.

My sensor had broken off so that just the metal end was left and two wires connected to the end were sticking out the hole.  I tried the air and pulling on the wires but it wouldn't come.  Then I wrapped some sandpaper around a socket and worked on clearing out whatever oxidation was preventing the end from coming out.  After the sandpaper,  I put a rag around a socket to try to pull any grit out of the hole.  Then I tried the air and pulling again.  It came a little further, but I had to do the sandpaper trick once more before it popped out.

*Big Update*
I finally put the lists to spreadsheet and html format. I don't have them hosted for direct viewing currently, but they can be downloaded here:   The file size is small, something like 165kb. It unpacks to about 6.9mb and includes the 89 Coupe, 90 Coupe, and 90 TSTE list in both spreadsheet and html formats. All of the lists are technically incomplete, but they're far more complete than you will likely ever see.  There are supposed to be 751 1989 coupes, 2,749 1990 coupes, and 1,000 Turbo STE sedans. Those numbers are stated by the Pontiac Historical Society and Compnine also listed the exact same numbers. The totals I ended up at are 734 for the 1989 coupes, 2,740 for the 1990 coupes, and only 200 some odd Turbo STE sedans. The sedan list is so far off because I never got around to running through the list for them. I did add about 150+ cars to it during the course of doing the 1990 coupe list so at least we have that...The VIN program I used quit working before I got around to making my final pass through of the 1990 coupe list. I made it from the 200,000-277,000 range and only added one car I had missed in my previous methods. I also crossed off one car in that range that I had accidentally listed that was not real. Considering I only came up with one car in that large range, I kinda doubt I would have ever produced the other supposed 9 cars made from 277,000 to about 306,XXX.
I need to thank a few people below for their help with this.
Skitchin - Huge thanks to him for automating the process and literally knocking months or even years off of this project.
turbo-v-sick  - Thanks for doing all the leg work on the  1989 coupe list! He has also dug up tons of history and photos on these cars that we might not have ever found without him.
ManicMechanic - Thanks for helping with the VIN project and constantly posting pictures and information on these cars making it easier for me to document them. I wouldn't have come across a fraction of the ones you do because I wasn't aware of half of those auction, salvage, etc. sites until you brought them to my attention.
I'm probably forgetting some people here, but thanks to anyone that helped in any way, big or small!
I wanted to turn in the list in a much more complete format but unfortunately it didn't turn out that way. Too bad compnine did away with the several free vin checks per day when my list was still in its infancy. Those were handy in filling out the color and option info on these cars. Eventually I would like to contact them about getting a custom account and have several people help go through and document the vins. That will not be any time soon though. I'm tired of looking at those numbers for now. :P  I will be lightly modifying the list over time. I have some extra little blurbs of information on some cars I will include in a text document alongside it later. I also want to go through all my old car photos and pull any TGP ones that I documented by vin to upload to a directory to accompany the list. Don't hold your breath on either of those things as it will be quite a while before I get around to them..
I also edited the first post on page 1 with a duplicate of this post for those that stumble across the thread when searching later. By that time, hopefully it will be hosted somewhere here on the w-body page. :biggrin:
Edit: I always forget something. The numbers there by each car are to be taken with a grain of salt. I don't have enough information to say whether they were built in sequence and the case of the missing cars makes those irrelevant as well. The 1990 list up to vins with 277K could potentially be correct numbers if they were built in sequence. I would like more people to report their build dates, preferably with photos of the stickers. Some of the color, option, etc information could be incorrect as well. Plenty of it was owner supplied and I could not verify it with compnine no longer available. If you have any corrections to things there, see any duplicate numbers, or whatever, please shoot me a message and I'll get around to correcting it when I can.
Download link(only good for 30 days). I suggest everyone save a copy so that we can all share it around with other owners later until I can get it hosted somewhere online.

I'm pretty sad to see that there hasn't been a post on this board in almost three months.  I got my TGP out of storage and have been slowly reassembling it.  Been ordering some parts and visiting junkyards to find some of the stuff I need but the 1st gen GPs are getting hard to find, especially the 89 - 93s.

An admin would have to take care of it.
