Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima
If your Max is 3.5 which it should be unless its 2001, than this Max has 3 sensors. 1 crank and 2 cam. Crank sensor is in the front of the bell housing, behing cooling fan, where engine and trans meet. than other 2 sensors are on sides of the cylinder head in both banks by the air filter box. They are 3 wire connectors and the cam sensors are bare to unplug and replug properly, so good luck. The connectors have these green slides, thast have to be pushed to unlock the connector, however when you going to replu it, you need to make sure, that the green lock/slide piece inside the connector slides back into position, or the sensor could unplug. You need to push the green slide and pull on the connector at the same time to unplug sensor.

SOURCE: crank angle sensor location
The crank sensor is always located next to the crankshaft pulley. it will be inserted into the block with the top part of the housing half way out. you cant miss the wires leading into the tip of the housing next to the crank shaft pulley.

It is mounted to the transmission bellhousing on the driver's side. The connector is mounted on the firewall and is a smaller, gray connector. You can reach the sensor from underneath.

Hello oldiro: My name is Roger and I can help. From under the vehicle look up between the transmission and the side of the block. Mid motor above the pan rail there is a bolted in sensor. This should be the crank sensor.It will have two wires plugged in to it. Please rate this answer as this lets us know you received the information you asked for. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

Hi, at the front of the crankshaft. if its near time for the timing belt, you want to replace it along with any pullies, tensioner and water pump
The crankshaft position sensor is mounted on the engine near the crankshaft.
The crankshaft position sensor is a Hall-Effect sensor that senses the crank angle (piston position) of each cylinder and converts it into a pulse signal. The signal from the sensor is relayed to the ECM to indicate engine rpm and the position of the crankshaft.
