Part is located on the passenger side of vehicle, between pulleys on the engine block. With short 4" - 5"wires coming from it wrapped in protective casing transversing the belt.

1996/97 only 3.0 liter v6. camshaft sensor is inside the distributor (removal required) the serial # was on the front of the block below head at #1 piston. The sensor ended up not being the problem.The water pump went out (locked up tight) thus shreading the timing belt.I purchased a" Haines "repair manual for $20 at a local parts store.A lot of bouncing from chapter to chapter(I found that stickey notes for book marks are very handy and help keep manual cleaner while working on vehicle.F.Y.I. the water pump (from a parts store) has to be split in half.The back side case is re-used.If you get it from the "dealer "It comes complete,saves time seperating ,cleaning,installing gasket and putting back together befor you can installit.Be prepared to become a contortionist while working on this particular vehicle.
