Have a 2001 Pt Cruiser 2001 2.4 liter. Car stoled and have been unable to get it started. Battery and starter are good. Would like to know how to locate crank and cam sensor on engine to replace?

Hi djharrington, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem let me know we start here might not be coming coming from the cam and crank sensors

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing

If both fuel and spark is present-check the valve and ignition timing, this will lead you to problems
with compression and valves opening and closing at the wrong time/broken or jumped timing
belt/chain.

The crankshaft position sensor mounts to the engine block below the generator and near the oil filter.

Have you checked to see if there is spark to the spark plugs?
