Changing it is easy, it's shaped like a bolt with one lead coming off of it (second lead is actually the engine itself). Now I with I had a picture of where it is... I just don't remember.

Never mind, the hood opened. The sender is in the back of the block right around the dead middle. Pretty awkward position given that the fill tube is right there. Too dark for a picture though.
