Question about Ford Taurus
Here it is. Right next to crankshaft pulley. Take connector off, take 2 bolts out, falls right off. Before replacing, check to make sure you don't have a chipped tooth on the gear-like thing that it faces. That could also cause problems with the crank signal, and the sensor itself could be fine.

The Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor is a permanent magnet output coil device that monitors the speed and position of the crankshaft. A reluctor is attached directly to the crankshaft, and is used to generate a constant signal as it passes the CKP sensor magnetic coil. The CKP Sensor utilizes system voltage (12 volts DC), or reference voltage (5 volts DC) to generate a digital output signal to the PCM that is based upon a 0.5 volt AC reference. The alternating magnetic field is used by the sensor output electronics to produce a digital pulse. The CKP sensor returns a digital ON/OFF signal pulse during each revolution of the crankshaft, with a momentary signal interrupt for the top dead center (TDC) position of the #1 cylinder. The Pulse Width Modulation pattern is used by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to calculate ignition timing, fuel injector timing, misfire diagnostics, and the tachometer display
