Re: crank shaft sensor -
I'm assuming the sensors are to the REAR of the engine compartment.
There's a bracket inside the motor that they thread into. You're going to have to somehow, get hold of it and back it out. If you have room, a reverse drill bit and an easy out will do the trick but you'll have to get a drill in there to do the work. If you know anyone with a right angle drill, that will help a lot. Otherwise, you're looking at a major undertaking.

Crank shaft sensor Remove the driver side rear ignition coil bolts. Reposition the coil. Disconnect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor electrical connector. # Use penetrating oil and allow the oil to soak around the CKP sensor prior to removing the sensor. You're looking at left, rear side of engine. CAMSHAFT POS. front side of engine on the drives side about half way up the timing cover, not hard to get to.
The crank shaft is actually an internal mechanical part of the engine (see last picture) however the crank shaft position sensor uses through what they call a "hall effect" with a componant inside the transmission. The crank shaft turns which in turn turns the componant inside the transmission. Below are a couple of pictures of the location of the crankshaft position sensor as well as what the plug looks like so you know you are removing the correct part. Hope this helps.....
Crankshaft position sensor located on Right side of the engine.
1.remove the crankshaft pulley
2. remove the drive belt auto- tension
3. remove the upper cover and front covers from the engine
4. remove the crankshaft position sensor from the oil pump
5. Install tbe sensor in the reverse order of removal.
Hope this can help .
usually if the magnet in the sensor comes out it destroys the cam position shaft,(it should have a half moon shape when u remove the sensor from the cam pos/oil pump drive. if the half moon is damaged or missing u must replace the cam pos/oil pump drive, and yes it is timed with the engine. wot i have done is try to locate where the half moon was on the drive it usually leave a trace of where it was. now index where the half moon is at remove hold down bolt and remove the driver assy. install the new drive, clock the half moon shaft to match the one u just removed once u get the half moon shaft where u want it and the oil pump rod alines and the whole housing is down install the hold down clamp. now to get rid if that check engine lite youll have to plug a scanner in and look at the live data adjust the cam position till u have plus or minus 2 degrees
Is this a V6 or 4cyl???>>>(V6) This requires removing the Harmonic balancer (crankshaft pulley). Remove (R) front wheel, remove engine splash Guard, Remove crank pulley, remove lower timing belt cover. The Crank sensor is located behind the crank shaft pulley!! I highly recommend having this done by a certified tech, requires special tools. Hopefully this helps!!
the crank position sensor is located to the back of the engine to the left of the oil filter, it is right next to the oil filter on the back side of the engine. hope this helps. Please rate my fix as i strive to be the best. need more help, get back to me Thanks Ray
