The easiest way to remove these crankshaft sensors is to pull the transmission out. They are in a very poor location and anyone with a moderate size hand has trouble pulling these out without pulling the transmission out. The vehicle will not run if this sensor is out, and i recommend replacing it even if it wasn't bad if you ever have to work on your transmission or ever have transmission work done. Knowing you have a Dodge, presuming it's an automatic, you will, and i repeat, will have to get transmission work done.

Pull crankshaft position sensor straight up out of the transaxle housing.
(Disconnect crankshaft position sensor electrical connector from the wiring harness connector.
INSTALLATION - ADJUSTABLE
All vehicles will be equipped with an adjustable crankshaft position sensor. This can be identified by an elongated mounting hole in the sensor. NOTE: If the removed sensor is to be reinstalled, clean off the old spacer on the sensor face. A NEW SPACER must be attached to the sensor face before installation. If the sensor is being replaced, confirm that the paper spacer is attached to the face of the new sensor Crankshaft Position Sensor and Spacer
Install sensor in transaxle and push sensor down until contact is made with the drive plate. While holding the sensor in this position, install and tighten the retaining bolt to 12 N·m (105 in. lbs.) torque.
Connect crankshaft position sensor electrical connector to the wiring harness connector.
Attach connector to heater tube bracket.
Install speed control servo. Tighten nuts to 9 N·m (80 in. lbs.) torque.
The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.
The sensor is bolted to the top of the cylinder block near the rear of right cylinder head
Note: The sensor is accessed by removing the right front fender liner
Remove right front tire and right front wheelhouse liner. Disconnect crankshaft position sensor pigtail harness from main wiring harness. Remove two sensor (recessed hex head) mounting bolts on the Crankshaft Position Sensor Remove sensor from engine.
INSTALLATION Position crankshaft position sensor to engine. Install mounting bolts and tighten to 8 N·m (70 in. lbs.) torque. Connect main harness electrical connector to sensor. Install right front tire and right front wheelhouse liner.
