IF THE CRANK SENSOR GOES BAD ON THAT ENGINE THE CAR WILL STOP RUNNING OR NOT START IF TRYING TO START IT. NEED THE CODE INFO TO HELP YOU FURTHER. TRY GOING TO ADVANCED TO GET THEM TO READ THE CODE-THEY DO THIS FOR FREE.

After you take the plastic cover off the engine, and remove the valve cover breather tube, place a light under the two rubber brake hoses shining foward. Between the valve cover and the throttle chamber look straight down toward the ground see a plug and black sensor with green release held to the engine block with a gold colored 10mm hex headed bolt. There it is. Take your time. Ask if you need anything else. Hope it helped.

SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position
It is stuck in bellhousing of the transmission near the rear head. The new crank sensor will come with a piece of gasket paper on the end of the sensor. Install the sensor all the way in against the pick-up wheel. When you crank the engine the wheel will rip off the paper and the adjustment will be correct.

Hello. One way to check if it is working is when you try to start the car does the needle move on you tac? If not then your crank sensor is more then likely the problem. It is located on the backside of the engine under the intake manifold. If is in about the center of the block. There will be a 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. If you decide to change it yourself (not to terrible of a job) unplug the sensor, remove the bolt and spin it back and forth slightly while pulling it out. It may be stoburn and you might have to work at it for a little bit (not a done of room) but it will come. When it's out the sensor will be shaped kind of like an L. I have changed a few of these over time and they can be a little stoburn. To install just reverse the process.
