Help !!!!


200, dodge stratus, 2.5 L..won't start, have spark and fuel pressure, and compression...So I figure crankshaft sensor to be as good a guess as any.
Problem is I have broken the sensor off in the hole. managed to get most of it out but now have approx 1/2 to 3/4 inch still left in the hole...tried drilling and tapping and the taps broke off in sensor..this isn't even funny anymore.
Well maybe to those reading it..but it has been a nightmare on this end....

any reasonable suggetion would be greatly appreciated

You might want to describe what you have left, exposed, if anything, to the best of your ability, to help with suggestions.

How big a diameter is your CPS and what size hole did you drill and what size tap?

Do you think there is any more room for any more drilling around the tap and/or feasibility to just bust it inward with say a punch and vacuum out the debris with powerful shopvac, without wrecking the engine? Can someone spot weld anything to it?

Sometimes guys who work at junk yards and do car repairs at junk yards are good at knowing what to do as they deal with so much old, rusted on, and seized stuff. Tricks of the trade, you might say. Depending on responses here, you might want to call some up and see what they say.
