The crank sensor is located on the right or passenger side of the engine, at the back on top of the transmission bell housing. It is held in with two bolts and has a single electrical plug on it. Hope this helps and good luck.

The Camshaft Position Sensor tells the PCM (computer) the position of the Camshaft Position. This Sensor sychronized along with several other Sensors including the Crankshaft Position Sensor the firing of the electronics to the spark plugs of each cylinder.
It is not difficult to replace and relatively inexpensive.
1. Disconnect the Negative side of the Battery,
2. Locate the Sensor and unplug.
3. Remove the Position Sensor retaining bolt.
4. Pull out the Sensor.
Replacement is reverse of above order.
Hint: use fresh engine oil on the end/sides of the Sensor especially around the rubber o-ring(s) to ease pushing the Sensor into proper position.
Technical Point: "Fire" aka high voltage, should be coming FROM the coil not TO it. If your coil is not being energized the first check after looking for obvious loose connections is testing voltages to the components IAW the shop manual. If all are go remove the coil and take it in for a test to see if it is producing sufficient spark energy. Alternatively swap coil with a known working coil to isolate the problem. Also initiate a self test of the built-in diagnostics and check for ignition related codes.( see the shop manual)
