Hi, are you still looking for help on this issue?
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 5 months ago.
There are 2 possible locations for this sensor depending on your engine management system. I have attached photographs of shows it located on the lower left hand side of the engine directly between the engine and transmission bellhousing; this would be accessed from the bottom of the vehicle. The other shows it located on the left hand rear of the engine ,near the middle; this could be accessed from the top or bottom of the vehicle, but most likely would be more easily accessed from the bottom. I hope this information helps and if you still need help, please don't hesitate to ask! Have a great day
