Hello oldiro: My name is Roger and I can help. From under the vehicle look up between the transmission and the side of the block. Mid motor above the pan rail there is a bolted in sensor. This should be the crank sensor.It will have two wires plugged in to it. Please rate this answer as this lets us know you received the information you asked for. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Well If you did happen to get Brake fluid in your Engine some how. The gaskets you would need would be the valve cover gasket, head gasket,Header gasket, Waterpump gasked, Front and rear main seals,and Thermostat gasket.

there is a steel pipe that runs across the motor there, they are prone to corroding and leaking, you might get away with cutting it and bridging with a piece of hose but the best bet is to replace it. We have been lucky a couple of times and found a car in the wreckers that had newish ones fitted.
