I'm sorry the Tech you requested was unavailable to assist you today. It appears that Tech is currently "Offline". Now that his 15 minute "request lock" has expired, hopefully I can be of some assistance in his place...
The Crankshaft Position Sensor is located on the lower, passenger's side of the engine, near the harmonic balancer. Best access will be from under the vehicle. On most models, there will be a plastic splash shield that will first need to be removed to gain access. The Crank Sensor is #4 in THIS IMAGE.
