Katdaddy21 is correct. Look down low by the crankshaft pulley. The belt may have to be removed to replace the sensor. Now, the CAMSHAFT position sensor is inside the distributor, at the bottom. Both sensors can be meter tested.

Solution #2 was right. The comment was not. It is inside the distributor. Some engines as stated in solution #1 are one the engine block but not this engine, it is in the distributor.

Look toward the bottom of the engine around the crankshaft pulley it is very near that pulley it will have a wire harness connected to it.

After I visited the website named "MPVclub.com," I read an article there that shows the crank position sensor to be located on the right side of the motor buy the crank pulley. You can't miss it, it is right in between the crank pulley and the a/c compressor. Go to www.MPVclub.com, then go to forums, which is on the left hand side of the page, go to 00-06 MPVproblems, go to page 2 and go to the bottom of the page to "PO335 Crankshaft position sensor Replacement, you will see the comments and some pics that will guide you to it.
Hope this helps.

Mazda mx3 wont start


VSS or vehicle speed sensor aka cam sensor or crank position sensor. Test the battery and alternator. You should also check for blown fuses, bad wires and grounds on a car as old as yours. If you find it's getting spark and fuel after further testing, check the timing belt. It could have slipped or broke even if it was changed recently so either pull off the cover or at least do a compression test.
