Replacing a CPS can be easy or hard. On the 2001 Gallant 2.4, it is located behind the timing belts. Removal of the main pulley, the covers and the belts is required. This isn't as hard as it sounds and is essentially the same as changing the timing belts. A manual (from Haynes) is helpful. Once the belts are gone, the crank shaft position sensor removal is trivial. Go look in the book and see if you're up to it.
