Answer 2
The crankshaft position sensor is located behind the drivers' side cylinder head (next to the firewall). The CPS slides into the engine and is only held in with one bolt, but it is not the easiest location to get to. Just be sure to get the crankshaft position sensor and not the camshaft position sensor. -
