SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position
It is stuck in bellhousing of the transmission near the rear head. The new crank sensor will come with a piece of gasket paper on the end of the sensor. Install the sensor all the way in against the pick-up wheel. When you crank the engine the wheel will rip off the paper and the adjustment will be correct.

it is located at the back of the engine on top of the transmission bell housing,the plug runs over to the passenger side of the engine bay and it comes out from behind the engine,you can actually get your hand on the sensor itself from under the hood on the drivers side,and i believe its a 13mm bolt holding it in,the new sensor will have a sticker on the end of it...leave it there,it is used for correct spacing between the sensor and the flywheel,hope this helps

Testimonial: "Everything was just like you said but as a not atleast for my jeep it is an 11mm not 13mm. Works great so far (keep fingers crossed) "
The fuel filter will be located under the driver side door tucked inside the frame rail. The filter should have 2 or 3 plastic clips you can pinch the end of the clips together and pull the clips right out.
I suggest replacing the clips because they get brittle and break easy. after you remove the clips you pull the fuel lines off. there will be pressure on these lines you can release the pressure by pushing the fuel valve stem located on your fuel injection rails underneath the hood either way you will have gas all over so dont do it while your engine is hot or near any flames, sparks or anything that will ignite the gas. (If you do not release the pressure be careful not to get gas in your eyes as it will spray for a secound or two).
After you remove the lines there may be a bolt on the outside of the frame rail you have to remove to remove the filter if not it will have a clamp around it and you just loosen it and slide it out. However on some models like mine there are not any plastic clips there are metal ones on the outside that clip onto the filter and the fuel line.
With ones like this there are metal retaining clips on the inside of the line as well it will take alot of force to pull them off and you will notice how there are two or three little metal pieces sticking out of the line, with a small screwdriver try to bend them back in if you cannot you will have to buy new ones from a autoparts store (orliley autoparts or advanced auto parts have them, the dorman part number is 800-017), they are called retaining clips, without them the lines will leak like crazy and you will not be able to drive, if you give up the new lines are available at the dealer for about 100 apiece and are about 6 hours of dealer labor to put in, so be carefull

It is located on the passenger side of the engine block just under the ignition module you can see it from underside. The easiest way to see it and access it is to jack up the passenger side front wheel and take the wheel off there is a rubber flap in the wheel well you can push out of your way. I am warning you be very careful removing it mostly made of plastic I broke one off leaving most of the sensor in the engine block had to drill the rest of it out which was no fun not alot of room for you to work. Get yourself a bottle of PB Blaster and keep spraying it as your pulling out before you try pulling out the sensor try to get it free enough that you can spin it around. Hope this helps good luck it fits pretty tight!
