Can you please help me to locate the crankshaft sensor? I have the repair sheet but I don't understand because it says remove the drive plate or flywheel. Does that mean I have to remove the transmission out?
Do you
have the same problem?

You are very welcome. I feel bad for you.I have absolutely no idea why this is designed this way. Most cars can be done in less than an hour.

Please let me know if you have other questions or need help.

Take care,
Joe
