SOURCE: Crankshaft Sensor
The cps is located underneath the car, about three feet back from the front bumper. It is mounted on the rear side of the engine block. You are looking for a round cylindrical device about four inches long. It is pretty hard to get out, as it is kept in place by a magnet inside the engine. Prying it out with a flathead is recommended. But go gently about it.

I have some experience with my oldie cutlass 90 that I had import to my farest country : CHILE .
My car seemed to run in three cylinders , of 4 .then started to run good in cold and after 10 minutes stop and die for a long time ...a few days after strat again and dies and so .. I studied about I read about the prom I learnt all abo¡ut this kind of irregular fails that even experiencied machanics can´t solve ...( It took 6 months and seven mechs to solve )..
the cars falls in limp in mode ( a kinda mem programmed mode for a few minutes and everybody thinks it the crankshft sensor , the ignition module , the ecu fial etc simply is code 51 : mem cal fail and limp in state i suggest work with and a code reader and it could be that kind of irregular fail..
ah. it´s too hard to find the eprom so the ECU dealer usually sell it without the eprom .. mine is ANLP 3645 ) federal emission .if you know when can I buy this or a good used one . I ´d shop it again cause I don´t want suffer about it again.. luck

Check to see if your electric radiator fan is turning on. These cars are known for the temperature switch that turns on the fan to go bad. Also, a highly overlooked problem, make sure the fins on your radiator and condenser aren't blocked with debris. Shine a flashlight on the opposite side and look through. Good luck!

. Its above the starter going into the side of the block. (front side of the engine) Disconnect the battery. Remove the starter. Remove the wIre CONNECTOR plug to the sensor. The sensor has 1 bolt holding it in. Remove the bolt, you may have to wiggle the sensor at the base a bit as you pull it out. Replace, and make sure it is pushed in all of the way. Replace the bolt, wire plug, starter, reconnect the battery.
