I am assuming this is a 3.0L or 3.3L or 3.8L (90 degree) V6 engine. Remove the crankshaft vibration damper. There is a plastic shiels there, yank it off. You now are looking at the crank sensor. To remove the above mentioned damper, you should use a special tool designed for this purpose. If not available, you need a functional brain, generic 2 or 3 BOLT type puller with three bolts, and some time to think about what you will break if you screw this up. If you use a jaw puller, you deserve to buy a new damper anyway. Rubber is just plain obviously not as strong as steel.

What is the layer of rubber between the two pieces of metal that are mounted to the stub on the end of the crankshaft called?
