Well, being this is v6, take off the fan, and the belt. Since the crankshaft is at the bottom of the engine, the sensor will be located near it at the front of the engine, on one side or the other. It will have a wiring harness connected to it, and should be mounted to a small bracket. It's best to remove the entire bracket, especially if the new unit came with a new one. Use BOTH new parts. Do not adjust timing at all until the sensor has been replaced.
You may need a "feeler gauge" to set this, as they (on some vehicles) need to be spaced at a particular distance from the harmonic balancer (if and external sensor). This I believe is and internal, so you should be fine simply inserting it in place.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
