WHERE IS THE CRANKSHAFT SENSOR AND HOW DO I REPLACE IT?

1996 Mazda b2300 • 122,000 miles

The timing belt and water pump were replaced but now the check engine light is on. We were told by the mechanic it's the crankshaft sensor.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove alternator. Drain cooling system and remove water outlet tube. Disconnect crankshaft position sensor wiring harness connector. Remove sensor mounting bolt and pry sensor

Make sure the electrical connections are good before you take apart, that may be all it is.
