How do I replace a crankshaft censor? Do you have a diagram?

Crankshaft sensor would be mounted close the the harmonic balancer pulley. It senses the rotation of the engine. It would have a magnet and copper coil winding inside similar to the coil in a speaker cone. When metal passes by the device in close proximity such as a rotating pulley, it induce small amount of electric current. The harmonic balancer pulley would have notch on it so the when that notch passes through the sensor it would cause a sudden drop in in current and that is how it senses the the position of the crankshaft. So look where all the belts are at the main pulley that drives all the belt is the harmonic balancer. You would see a pair of wires connected to it. If you see a small device mounted close to it in such a way so it senses its rotation thats the crankshaft position sensor.

1998 grand cherokee limited crankshaft crack?

To identify the crankshaft, with the belt removed, it is the only item that will turn when you crank the engine over.
I've seen harmonic balancers fail but rarely a crankshaft.
Some P/S systems will "push" some fluid out when you steer without the pump running. Concentrate on repairing/replacing the balancer, then re-diagnose the P/S problem after that is taken care of.

I cant find my crank sensor

The 3.0 doesn't have a crank sensor. It has a pick-up in the distributor for crank reference. But this wouldn't keep the engine from cranking. Is the old belt wrapped up around the harmonic balancer causing it to lock up?
