On your 1992 Chevrolet Lumina-Sedan/Coupe 3.1L MFI OHV , the Crankshaft Position Sensor is located: Under hood, passenger side, lower engine area, passenger side of engine block, mounted front of crankshaft pulley

cerebral_eni: The crank position sensor is located at the back of the engine block just below the cylinder head. It actually projects into the bell housing and reads the teeth on the flywheel where it references TDC for #1 cyl and RPM's of the crank. It's a "Hall effects generator". Unless you are into electronics and have a lab scope to look for a square wave pattern, I will continue with my other input.
Nissan has a recall campaign on the crank angle sensors.
The campaign # is 07V527000:ECM update for stalling;
NHTSA07V527000 NOV 07,
The symptom was brief malfunction of sensor causing the engine to quit running which could potentially put the vehicle at risk for a collision. The sensors would ultimately fail. There was also a voluntary recall on the reprogramming of the ECM's due to stalling problems. TSB# NTB07-081, Campaign ID#R0712
I hope this information is of some assistance to you. You may be able you get your car repaired under warranty! Good Luck!

WHEN YOU STAND ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR YOU ONE IS RIGHT BELOW OF THE INTAKE WHICH IS BANK 2 OR THE ONE CLOSE TO FIREWALL , BANK 1 ONE IS ON SAME SIDE NEXT TO THE RADIATOR BUT THEY BOTH ON THE CAM RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE, THE EASIEST WAY TO IDENTIFY THEM IS THAT THEIR CONNECTOR IS GREEN, ONCE YOU LOCATE THEM THE CLIP NEEDS TO BE PUSHED DOWN TOWARD THE SENSOR FOR THE CONNECTOR TO BE RELEASED, ONCE YOU REMOVE THE CONNECTOR THERE WILL BE ONLY A 10MM SCREW HOLDING THE SENSOR PULL IT OUT , THE SAME SETTING THE NEW ONE PUSH IT ALL THE WAY IN , THIGHT THE 10MM SCREW, CONNECT IT BACK AND YOU'RE DONE,BUT FOR THE ONE ON THE BACK SOMETIMES MIGHT BE NECESARY FOR YOU TO TAKE THE INTAKE OFF....HOPEFULLY IS NOT YOUR CASE....
Good luck!!! and if you need the crank for hard starting on hot/warm, it is located on the botton middle section on the transmission is the only cable that goes down to a small piece of metal and it is held by a 10mm screw only to protect the sensor, you will se the sensor once you remove that small about 6-8 inches piece of metal. Then you'll be able to unescrew the 10mm screw that holds the crank position sensor. when you pull it off you'll be able to see the fly wheel inside the transmission...
you all enjoy your rides out htere!!!

The cam position sensor is easier to replace than the crank sensor, you may want to start with that alone. There's two cam sensors on the V6, your code indicates the Bank 1 sensor is causing trouble, that's the cylinder head closest to the firewall.
The crank position sensor is on the engine block also on the firewall side, tucked up next to the starter, and somewhat hard to reach, especially without a lift.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
