I drive a 1990 dodge ram van. B250 5.2L and it turns over but wont fire. I have been told by every repair place and parts service place that the crankshaft position sensor needs replaced and I have looked everywhere but cannot locate it.

I tried spraying carb cleaner. It didnt start but it is making a slightly different noise now when cranking. Like it wants to start but cant. I have tried so many things. I have replaced cap and rotor and plugs and wires. It runs for about a week and then stops starting. And then I get it jumped and it runs for about another week before doing the same thing
