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.

Do you

Removal & Installation (B2300)

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
from front of engine. To install, reverse removal procedure. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . Ensure coolant level is correct.

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