Check the headlight relay, it may be defective or it has no power due to a shorted fuse. Refer to the owners manual for location, it will be under the hood most likely..

Can anyone show me where crankshaft position sensor location on 1991 pontiac firebird 3.1L and show picture or video link of the location

Zach, guess what? It doesn't have one. I went around and around with this very same issue with a local car parts supplier. Yes one shows up on the list of parts for this year and engine... it is all done through the pick-up coil and ignition module in the distributor. Tell me more about your problem. I have tons of experience on this make, year and model.

My firebird won't fire

This could be a couple of things, I would recommend that you run a diagnosic on the car to take the guess work out of it, but it could be a fuse, or the coil, cam sensor, crankshaft sensor, faulty O2 sensor, or the PCM/ECU.

Crankshaft Position Sensor

The crank sensor is on the front of your engine behind the harmonic balancer. You will need a balancer puller for a 3.8 and a crank sensor alignment tool to do this lob.

No start on 3.4 engine

If your car has spark and runs on starting fluid you have a fuel problem not a cam sensor. 41 lbs of fuel pressure is not enough. Try pinching off the return fuel line and check the pressure. Let me know what you find.
