The crankshaft position sensor is located behind the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer on the passenger front of the engine.It is mounted to the engine block/timing cover on a bracket.

To replace this you will need a special puller to remove the balancer and a special tool to align the new sensor on the bracket.
