WHAT I SEE IS YOU CHECK THE COILS, SO I GUESS YOUR GETTING SPARK TO THE SPARK PLUGS, IF THATS THE CASE MORE THEN LIKELY THE CRANK SENSOR IS OK. WHAT YOU WANT TO CHECK IS IF YOU HAVE INJECTOR PLUSATION IF NOT THAT IS CONTROL BY THE COMPUTERS DIVER INTERNAL.

there are sites that show a pictures of ckp sensors for these cars, but it is the wrong one. the sensor is inside the distributor. you have to remove the cap, rotor and a black cover that goes over the inside of the distributor. the reason for this cover is because you have what is called an optical pickup sensor which works with light. if any natural light or oil gets on this sensor it will cause all sorts of ignitiion problems.
this sensor can't be replaced. it is part of the distributor and has to be replaced as awhole.
that is the reason you can't find the sensor.

You can check in the side of the block, above the starter for the crankshaft sensor. As for the camshaft sensor, for a 8.1L engine, it is located on the front of the enigne, that is, at the driver side. You would notice it is a grey 3 wire connector. But for a 5.3/6.0L enigne, it is on top of the engine in the back.
Best of luck!
