The 3.3/3.8L crankshaft sensor is located on the rear of the transmission housing, above the differential housing. The bottom of the sensor is positioned next to the drive plate

You never mentioned the code that you got while scanning the car.However, crankshaft sensor problem is quite common on these models and i have replaced it many times.

I understand your concern driving the car.However, it could stall and leave you stuck at any time with bad sensor.

I wish i could have a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Chrysler voyager se td 96 turbo problem?

Check for a hole in the rubber piping/hose coming from the turbo to the engine throttlebody. It is very common for the hose to get oil on it and that weakens the rubber and pops a hole in it. The smoke when you start it is also common as that engine has valve guides that get worn and the engine oil makes its way into the cylinders after running a while and sitting for at least 3-4 hours. Check that hose for a hole or to see if it came disconnected from the turbo or throttlebody. good luck
