The crankshaft position sensor should be at the front of engine.

Here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when doing the job:

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/crankshaft-angle-sensor-replacement

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the air cleaner box
Loosen and relocate the starter motor,
Disconnect the electrical connector (crankshaft sensor - four cylinder).
Remove crankshaft sensor bolt.
Remove the crankshaft sensor.

Here are diagrams showing the location of the sensor for both the four and six cylinder engines. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers

I have a 2004 Dodge stratus with a 2.4 l, 4-cyl dohc engine. The vin number has the "x" in the 8th position. The trouble codes I got were P0335 and P0340. I'm trying to replace the crankshaft position sensor and I can't locate the thing. Help!

If it is a 2.4L it is on the right side of the front of the engine block. I only have a schematic of the 2.7L which I have attached. It is on opposite side.

I have looked everywhere for a crankshaft position sensor and I cannot find it. I looked under the starter. Also I looked under the alternator. I looked right above the oil filter and I cannot find it where is it. Also looked over the starter.

First I had a camshaft position sensor code and replaced that and then a crankshaft position sensor came up and once I turn on its got a bad shake on the engine. If I try and drive it it will go a couple of blocks and shut down. I will have to wait for twenty minutes to cool down and turn on just to make it back home.

I have replaced the crankshaft sensor and it cleared the codes but car still runs rough. And if I press gas tor rev at 4,000 rpm's it acts like I am pumping the gas on and off and I am holding pedal still. I cannot drive to far car will shut off on road. And my number one plug keeps getting squeezed to.00 and should be at.44.

If your are in park or neutral the 4,000 rpm's could be the rev limiter. If the spark plug gap keeps getting closed that will cause the rough running. Something must be hitting the plug gap to close it.

It should be on the back side of the block.
