The crank sensor is should be on or close to the cover of your timing gear, and the physical location isn't usually the problem, but you will have to recalibrate your timing after installation, or you could possibly damage your engine. I hope it goes well for ya. Local mechanics usually do it in about 2 hours, might cost $200-$400 dollars. If you can set your timing, you are golden. Good luck

SOURCE: crank position sensor location
you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!

If you go in thru the passenger side wheel well you can get your arm in with a wrench to remove the hold down bolt. Alot of times the sensor is stuck in the block. You might have to twist and work it back and forth. Spraying it with Carb cleaner will help. In case you don't know it is located on the back of the block and you can see it if you look up between the engine and transmission from the bottom. You will be mad at this car and your hands will hurt when you finally get this changed.
