Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
The crankshaft position sensor on the Ford Escort ZX2 is located behind the exhaust manifold. It sends a signal to the computer that includes the speed of the crankshaft, or engine rpm, and the location of the crankshaft at the No. 1 cylinder. The computer uses this information to adjust engine timing. If the sensor malfunctions, the engine will not start
Disconnect the negative battery cable, using the appropriate wrench. Set it aside, ensuring that it does not touch metal. Raise the vehicle, using the floor jack. Support it with jack stands.
Remove the exhaust manifold, using the appropriate sockets to unbolt the manifold at the pipe and at the head. Unplug the crankshaft position sensor, using your fingers.
Remove the sensor's retaining bolts, using the appropriate socket, and then remove the sensor from the engine.
Lubricate the new O-ring for the sensor with clean engine oil. Install the O-ring on the sensor. Install the sensor and tighten the bolts to 60 inch-pounds of torque. Plug in the wiring harness connector.
Reinstall the exhaust manifold. Lower the vehicle off the jack stands, using the floor jack. Reinstall the negative battery cable.

I have a 351 but they are common sensors and should be located same places. ATC is on the side or bottom of the air intake filter box. The CTS should be located on the goose-neck where your Thermostat is housed; this is comming off the intake mannafold and into the radiator.

I have 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership and I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Crankshaft Position Sensor is NOT located next tp the crank pulley... it is rather at the other end of the engine near where the transmission bellhousing bolts to the engine block. It is on the side toward the firewall near the bottom. Even if you can get the vehicle on a lift and get under it, you can't really see it... It's more of a feel thing... There was a campaign (recall) on these engines to replace Crank Position and also Cam Postion sensors. Check with your dealer- the campaign might be open. You will need your VIN number when you call.
