    My 03 Sentra would not start for 30 minutes after driving it sometimes and it threw the check engine light. A couple days later it cut off while I was driving it. Advance Auto parts put it on their computer and they said it was the crankshaft position sensor. I have since bought the part for $35 and now need to know where it is located in the engine so I can replace it. Anyone know where it is?
