the crank sensor is located in the lower right side of the block(side facing the firewall) just above the oil pan next to the transmission, no special tools needed

if im not mistaken, its on the backside towards the front of the engine on the bottom. Front of the engine as on the far right side. Just look for and follow the wires that are twisted together. You will have to get underneath...
