It is a 3.8. How do I go about checking for losing spark when it starts and where is the crank sensor at?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi:
I think I answered your last question. If you refer to our home page, there are directions on how to check for spark under the DIY section. Follow the directions and see if the spark stops after it stops. As far as the crank sensor, it is behind the harmonic balancer. I attached a picture to help you locate it. It is at the bottom front of the engine.

Let me know if this helps.
