I would say its near the crank, hence the name Crank position sensor. since the crank is at the bottom of the engine it will be down there. I believe it needs to bet set to a certain distance from the crank and that is critical, so if your not comfortable doing that, get it in to a reputable shop.

You will have to remove the two bolts from the cruise control servo. unplug the cruise servo and pull it up out of the way. You will then be able to see were the Crank sensor sticks out of the bell housing. It is about the 8:00 o'clock position with the distributor. I believe it is a 10 mm bolt holding in the crank sensor. You have to feel for it. and use and extension. then hook on the ratchet and take it out. Reverse for install.

Bolted on the trans housing, you can actually see it and be able to remove the bolt thru the left front wheel area looking at the trans. the hardest part is getting the connector off and then back on. Much easier on a lift.

The cam sensor is the distributor. and the odds are pretty good that could be causing the problem especially if you are loosen spark
