The crank sensor is located below the front exhaust manifold and above the starter. To access it, you must lift the front of the vehicle, and remove the starter. Once the starter is removed the sensor is visible. Because of the poor location and poor GM engineering these sensors fail. You have excessive heat from the exhaust and oil leaking from the valve covers that short them out. Also once the sensor is replaced, it must undergo a re-learn process. Unfortunately this process can only be performed by a GM dealer via their computer system.....if you need further assistance, feel free to post them on FYa...hopefully this helps!!

Evap port service

You'll need a repair book or shop manual to get the procedures.
Code 336 is for a problem with the crank sensor circuit, and 442 is for a small leak in the evap system. The leak could be the gas cap or a hose or valve between the gas tank and the vapor canister.

What is symptom of a bad crank sensor. When I go up a hill my 99 intrigue sputters and breaks up bad. Also, when cruising steady engine fine, I accelerate and again it breaks up badly. What gives.

Usually when a crank sensor goes bad the car will not run at all, you can have an erratic reading that will cause your car to skip but will do it under any situation. Sounds like to me you have a problem with something in the
ignition system breaking down under a load. Could be a plug, wire, or coil.
depends on what engine you have. If it is a 3.8 liter the most common failure is the #1 spark plug wire, disconnect it and look at the ends, it they are corroded or look "rusty" you need to replace it. If so i would also replace the plug for that cylinder.

You don't clean them, you get a new one. Usually if it's the MAF, it'll start and die, start and die. If your's is stalling, it'll be the idle air control valve, or the fuel filter, or the idle control system, or a vacuum leak at the intake or vacuum hoses. Good luck.

Crank position sensor location

you will need to remove the starter to gain acess to the ckp sensor. once you remove the starter look on the engine block and you will see the sensor. The only problem with doing this repair yourself is that you will not be able to preform the crankshaft position variation learn procedure with out a factory scan tool. The vehicle may crank an run, but the timing advance curves will be wrong so the vehicle will probably cut off every time you remove your foot from the gas pedal. Hope this info helps!
