Assuming a 3.0 V6; the crank sensor is actually located in the distributor. The 3.0 V6 makes use of small LED lights and a spinning disc located in the distributor. This disc has small holes in it when the holes pass by the proper point the light passes thru telling the ECU to spark and injector pulse. If you have no spark I'd check the ECU too; early 90's Mitsubishi ECU hasd poor capacitor in them, they tend to leak with time. If you do have to replace the ECU be certain to use the same MD number found on it.
If I may be of further service please let me know.

SOURCE: crank positioning censor

The camshaft position sensor is located on the timing cover on the front of the engine. The crankshaft position sensor is located just above the differential on the transaxle bell housing where it has to be to read from the flywheel the position of the crankshaft. It is easy to see from the front of the engine even though it is on the back half. Just look for the shifter cable and where its bracket ends (on the firewall side of the bracket) glance about 12" to the left and you should have no problem finding it. An 8 mm bolt is holding it in and with that bolt taken out it just pulls out of its hole. Google "95 caravan crankshaft position sensor" and then pick IMAGES so you can see an actual picture of what it looks like.

SOURCE: i need instructions on how to change a crank shaft censor

3.8L Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the serpentine belt(s) from the crankshaft pulley. Please see Section 1.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the right front tire assembly. Remove the right inner fender access cover.
  5. A flywheel holding device such as GM's J 37096 is required to keep the crankshaft from turning as the crankshaft balancer is being removed. Install this holding tool or its equivalent. Please see Section 3 for more information.
  6. Using a 28mm socket, remove the crankshaft harmonic balancer retaining bolt. Using special tool J 38197 or equivalent balancer removal tools, drawn the balancer from the end of the crankshaft. Please see Section 3 for more information.
  7. There is a roughly circular aluminum shield that protects the crankshaft position sensor; remove this shield. Use care not to damage it. Do not pry to remove.
  8. Detach the electrical connector from the crankshaft position sensor, remove the attaching bolts and separate the sensor from the engine block face.
