How to replace a crank case sensor on 1996 nissan pathfinder?

Crank case sensor? Sorry, I don't think I've ever heard of one. Crank position sensor? (Prob top of the bell housing directly behind the cylinder head, 10 mm headed bolt holds the shield and the sensor in place, but is only used when trouble shooting misfires.)

I would be curious to know what the code is.
Since this engine uses a distributor, there is no cam sensor listed other than the pick-up coil in the dist.
If the engine has a crank sensor it is mounted on the timing cover behind the crank pulley.
Usually, when you have a wandering idle speed, the idle speed control valve is faulty or the throttle body is dirty, or there is a vac leak somewhere.

After replacing the timing belt and resetting the timing correctly all of the sudden there is NO FIRE to the system from the battery.The car will turn over but no spark.NEED HELP, if anyone has an ide

Breeze, 4 cylinder: check fuse # 5 (20a), fuse #1 (10a), fuse # 10 (10a)- in the power distribution box. Check for power to the coil on the dark green wire with orange stripe. If power there, test the coil. If coil is good, suspect the cam position sensor or the crank position sensor.
Breeze, 6 cylinder: check fuse # 5 (20a), fuse # 10 (10a). Check for power to coil on the dark green wire with orange stripe. If no power to coil, try a new or known good Auto Shutdown Relay (in the power distribution center). If still no power to coil, may be a problem in wiring harness. If there is power to coil, and still no spark, test the coil. If coil is good, suspect the cam position sensor (in the distributor), or the crank position sensor. If all check good, may be a problem in the wiring or the pcm (computer).
Good luck.

2000 infiniti QX4 3.3L (engine has a distributer) stalls out especially when revved from idle. Also won't start or very difficult to start, haven't been able to get it to start for a couple days...

pull one ignition cable out of cap just enough to see the tip of connector and crank it, a spark should jump from cap to tip of wire. no spark means you need the whole distributor replaced. buy it from nissan or infiniti dealer, it comes with cap rotor installed and 12 mo 12k mile warranty, no matter who installs it. dont waste time with aftermarket rebuilt distributor, those are not reliable.

I need to know where to check the cam sensor at? and where its located?

the "camshaft position sensor" in your case is located inside the distributer .. if its bad your cars computer will have flagged it with an error code .. many auto parts stores will read the computer free .. unfortunatly the camshaft position sensor is part of the distributer .. so you probably have to replace the whole thing .. check the wiring and connectors going to the distributor to make sure they are not damaged .. now there is a crankshaft position sensor as well that can cause similar problems .. check the pcv valve to make sure its working properly .. it can cause some stange problems if it sticks ..

Location of crank sensor on 94 Nissan Pickup 4cyc

It is located in the distributer. The part is not sold seporate from the distributer. It is only a dealer item the whole distributer for 450.00$. It is also called the crank angle sensor. Just because the code 0335 comes on on the scan does not mean that the sensor is bad. The best thing to do it take it to a dealer.
Actually the one in the distributor is called a camshaft position sensor. You can by rebuilt distributor for around 250.00. The crank shaft position sensor is located on the Transmission housing on the left side.
