Most are near the front pulley of the engine.

Some are located in the bell housing, they pick the signal up from the flywheel.

What is purpose of crankshaft position sensor circuit perf?

In older cars that used a distributor, the distributor shaft was connected to the camshaft. The camshaft was connected to the crankshaft. So as they all turned, the spark would fire in direct correlation to the crankshaft. Once they eliminated the distributor, the computer needed a way to determine when to fire the spark. So they place a sensor near the end of the crankshaft and it reports the crankshaft position to the computer. So the computer can know when to fire the spark for each cylinder.

Replace crankshaft position sensor Chrysler town and country?

The crankshaft is the part of the ignition system that watches engine speed. To remove the sensor, pull the battery cable with slip joint pliers, lift the front of the car with a floor jack and chock the back tires, find the crankshaft sensor and unplug the electrical connector, clean around the area and unscrew the sensor mounting bolt. To install, make sure the new sensor has an O-ring seal and set the sensor in place, start the bolt by hand and finish tightening with a wrench (careful not to over tighten), plug the electrical connector and install any parts you had to remove. Lower the vehicle and remove the chocks.
