yes, it is location on all 2.2L engines that were available in the S10
you only asked me where the crankshaft position sensor was located. I supplied that answer with diagram.
If your truck doesnt start you need to determine what is missing - spark, fuel, compression. have you done that yet? was the check engine light on before it stopped running? did it just stop running while you were driving, or did it just not start one day?
Providing that the crank sensor you installed is not defective out of the box(been known to happen), then there is either a short/open in wiring harness, or the pcm(powertrain control module) has failed, or even a broken timing chain. Because it just stopped while you were driving, it is doubtful that it is a short/open in wiring. You need to do an engine compression test to rule out a broken timing chain. If compression is good, then either the new crank sensor is defective or the pcm is bad.
ckp sensor test:
pcm can only be tested with a factory level diagnostic scanner
