Hi ernest fuentes,

Thank you for the donation.

The Camshaft sensor is located at rear of cylinder head. Item # 16 is tha cam sensor.

The crankshaft sensor is located on right rear of cylinder block, facing the gear teeth ( cogs ) of the signal plate at end of crankshaft, below the starter motor. Item # 3 is the crank Sensor.

Hello ernest fuentes

The camshaft sensor is located by the driver side, Below Throttle Body.

The crankshaft sensor is located is located driver side rear side of engine.

In the above photos you can see the location of the camshaft sensor on the driver's side of the engine and the crankshaft position sensor is down on the back side of the engine (best seen from under the car & removed from above).
To replace either sensor you will need a 10mm metric bolt and a ratchet wrench. Don't forget the rubber o-ring. You're done!
