It is located around the crank pulley. It will have 2 to 3 wires going to it. That will be the only wires that will be located around the crank pulley.

cam sensor is on the driver side, front of the motor, just below the valve covers in easy veiw, just outboard of the water temp sensor and they both share the same wiring harness. The cam sensor is on the passenger side, actually on the transmission bell housing. It takes the signal from the flywheel next to the ring gear, about an inch from the engine on the transmission bellhousing. Accesible from the top and easier if you remove the air filter duct. Or jack up the front passenger side and easier if you come in from the front and its behind the axel, behind the motor, go up the bell housing, just below crank shaft level. Go with this first , it tells the comp when to send fuel. If you're getting spark with a 1381 code and you're choosing between CAM & CRANK, start with this, this is the culprit. Consider getting it from the dealer. Good luck. This is Waverunner70, Hope I could help.

Cam is on the end of the block, crankshaft sensor is on the bottom of the block. Both are easy to change....are you changing these due to poor performance or no start condition?

My understanding is that the truck won't run with a bad crankshaft position sensor. It is the only way the computer knows when to fir the plugs and injectors at the correct time.
