Question about Dodge Ram 2500
Can a fairly mechanical man replace it or do you need special tools?
I would need to know what year, make, model and engine size? Most are fairly easy to get at and only require a 10mm socket and about 20 minutes of time.
Trucks and caravans have the crank sensor in the bell housing of the transmission. Cars can be behind the timing cover, in the engine block, or in the bell housing.
let me know what you have and I'll get you pointed in the right direction.

SOURCE: crank position sensor location
you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

wall5552: there were two engines used in 1992 Jeep Wranglers.
A 2.5 liter and a 4.0 liter. HOWEVER>>>> The location for the crank angle sensor is the same for both.
It is located on the bell housing up near the front at about the 10:00 PM position.
The Cam position sensor is located in the Distributor on both engines as well.
