I was driving the car all of a sudden the car just stopped was not able to start crank. Car will not start or crank. Had it scanned and got the code p0335 crankshaft sensor. I would like to know the location of the crank shaft sensor if possible.
Do you

Welcome to 2CarPros.

If you look at picture 1, it shows location of the sensor. Here are the directions for replacement. Picture 2 correlates with the directions. I hate to say this, but the first thing indicated in the directions is to remove the transmission

Here are the directions to access the sensor. I have no idea why they put these things in hidden places. Normally it takes about 30 minutes to replace a crank sensor. This one is a major undertaking. It calls for 6.4 hours labor.

7. Remove starting motor.
8. Remove bolts and nut fastening engine and transaxle, then detach transaxle from engine.

NOTE: When detaching transaxle from engine, move it in parallel with crankshaft and use care so as not to apply excessive force to drive plate and torque converter.

WARNING: Be sure to keep transaxle with torque converter horizontal or facing up throughout the work. Should it be tilted with torque converter down, converter may fall off and cause personal injury.

Remounting
1. Make sure that torque converter is installed correctly to transaxle.
2. Attach transaxle to engine.
Tightening torque
