When you say pulley loks like it is off, are you referring to the timing marks not ligning up?
if this is what your talking about, it is more likely that the distributor has been installed a notch or two wrong

2005 santa fe serpentine broke then bad vibrating and it died replaced serpentine and tensionor, now motor locked. Is the motor shot or could something else be wrong?

Put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt, and see if you can turn the crankshaft-clockwise. If the crank won't turn, something internal is bad. If you can turn the crankshaft normally, check that another pulley has seized.
Or try it this way: take the serpentine belt back off and see if the starter can spin the crankshaft. If it does, look for a seized pulley. If a good battery cannot make the starter turn the crankshaft, likely the motor is shot.

I need to remove my front seal ( crankshaft) possibly without any fancy tools?

Pulling and replacing a main seal on a crank cannot be done without "fancy" tools. If you go to and make a free account and then put in the make and model and year, you will be able to access the free online repair guides. Also if there is an autoparts chain near you, you can rent those fancy tools.

I need to know where the crankshaft position sensor is located on my jeep grand cherokee

The crankshaft position sensor is located around the crank. Look for a stubby piece of plastic aimed at the edge of the crank pulley. The crank pulley is in central pulley which all the belts are ultimately driven from. It will be in the center-line & bottom of the front of the engine. Typically they are ~45deg off to a side. It's possible you may not be able to remove it without first removing the crank pulley.

Jsut want to know where crankshaft position sensor


here are illustrations of the CKP (crankshaft position) sensor in 2.3L and 3.0L.

Note: In the bottom of the 2.3L drawing says Trottle Position (TP) Sensor, this is wrong, It should say CKP Sensor.

2.3L Engine

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located to the left of the crankshaft pulley.

3.0L Engine

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is located just behind the crankshaft pulley on engine block.

I am having trouble removing the crankshaft pulley are there any hints.

1. Remove the Center Bolt and Washer.
2. Use a correct size Puller - available at most auto parts stores (some even rent them "for free" (with deposit); also available in sets at Harbor Freight.
3. DO NOT USE the outside Crankshaft Pulley lip- the Puller will snap the edge off!
4. Use a smaller sized Bolt inserted where the Crankshaft Bolt was, and use a set of washers small enough to fit on the bolt, but small enough to allow the Crankshaft Pulley to be "pulled" off the Crankshaft. The Puller Pivot Leg will be place againsgt this bolt.
