Hello,

The sensor is bolted to the top of the cylinder block near the rear of right cylinder head.

Here is a guide and diagrams below to show you how to change the sensor out:

Hello, it should be located passenger side, rear of engine, close to cylinder head. I believe two bolts hold it on. You might try using a mirror if you cannot see it. I do not know if it might be easier to see from the bottom or through the wheel wheel?

Depends on engine size, but for the 5.2L and 5.9L engines the crankshaft position sensor is located at the rear of the engine block.

I am trying to locate the sensor to replace but cannot find it. I know it is on the belt housing but I still cannot locate it. I would appreciate any help.
Thanks,
Steve
