The crank sensor is under the oil sending unit on the back of the motor next to the firewall. It is held in the block by an 8mm bolt. It has to be removed from under the car. Get under the car on the RH side and get back far enough that you can see over the transaxle. Good Luck.

Engine will just keep cranking,stutter at times even die while driving, have replaced fuel pump, o2 sensors, now have found its more than likely crankshaft position sensor, I'm not sure where it is...

Quite often the crank angle sensor is located at the front of the engine down near the bottom pulley that sits on the end of the crank. You should see (under the grime :) ) a small sensor with a pigtail leading to wiring harness. This should be your crank angle sensor.
It might be far easier to get your vehicle checked either via a diagnostic or sometimes you can put a loop back wire in to generate basic codes. This of course depends upon the system OBD or OBDII
Then you read the codes which are usually the amount of times the engine check light blinks or similar and you then check that code against a code list. Most good workshop manuals will have code lists and information on how to check your codes.
