Snap-on releases 3/8" drive fuel pressure sensor socket for GM vehicles

The removal of the fuel pressure sensors on GM vehicles can be a challenge. Service technicians often attempt to remove them with pliers, which can easily damage the part. Utilizing a socket is a much faster and more efficient approach to removing the sensors. The new Snap-on 3/8" Drive 27mm 6-point Fuel Pressure Sensor Socket (A227) is designed as a time-saving tool for this particular job.

On GM vehicles, access to the fuel sensors is restricted by the sensor connector and side air intake ports. The sensors could be damaged easily if the proper tool is not used. The new Snap-on 3/8-inch Drive 27mm 6-point Fuel Pressure Sensor Socket (A227) is thin-walled and has a special broach depth to give service technicians better access to the fuel pressure sensor.

“Our goal with every Snap-on tool is to find effective ways to increase the productivity and efficiency of our customers so jobs don’t take up more of their time than they should,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “Customer feedback we received helped us develop the new A227 socket. It is specifically designed to help technicians repair fuel pressure sensors on GM vehicles more quickly and easily than before.”

The Snap-on 3/8" Drive 27mm 6-point Fuel Pressure Sensor Socket (A227) removes GM fuel pressure sensors without difficulty on a number of 2007-2011 models, including the Cadillac CTS and STS; the Buick Allure, Enclave and LaCrosse; and the Chevrolet Camaro, CobaltHHR, Traverse and Acadia.
