The crankshaft position sensor is realitivily easy to replace. You will need a 10mm socket. The crankshaft position sensor mounts to the engine block behind the generator, just above the oil filter. REMOVAL 1.Disconnect electrical connector from crankshaft position sensor. 2.Remove sensor mounting screw. Remove sensor.

look under the car on the back of the engine, you will see wiring going to two sensors, one is the crak sensor and the other is a cam sensor.
