Hi location of sensor is attached diagram , rear of engine .

Note :

You must loosen the 10mm bolt completely then remove the sensor with the bolt in position as they are one part ,as the two are set in different angles you will need to pull outward then when lose pull outward in a down motion to get both out together .

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .

Hi I look at the diagram and it is still not clear to me. Can you give a little more detail as to where the back of the engine is? Or what component the CPK sensor is next too. Thank you.

Hi Greg, unfortunately I still can’t find the location of the Crankshaft position sensor. I look for over an hour yesterday.The latest diagram you send me look like where the Camshaft position sensor is. Which I just replace.
Mazda Mechanic: Greg, import technician replied 5 months ago

So that crankshaft sensor you have already replaced .

What problem are you having and what malfunction codes did you have .

Before using Justanswer, I had to replace CAMSHAFT Position Sensor. Which I did. But I have to replace the CRANKSHAFT Position Sensor as well but I couldn’t locate it after spending days looking for it. So I decided to use Justanswer to help me locate the CRANKSHAFT Position Sensor. But as of now, I still haven’t been able to locate it.
