I had a '87 3.8... the 3.8 V6 is much the same for many years, I think this is what you mean?

Anyway, the sensor is on the accessory end of the engine, located just above the large crankshaft pulley at the bottom of the motor. It is not easy to see.

The sensor is held in with one bolt and has two wires coming out of it.

If I recall, the fastening is adjustable for gap between the sensor and crank reluctor.

V6 crank position sensorThe crank position sensor is part of the distributor on a V6 All Fieros equipped with a distributor (1984 - 1986 4-cyl and 1985 to 1988 V6) have the crank sensor inside the distributor. It may also be known as a distributor pickup or HEI pickup.Fieros with DIS (1987 to 1988 4 cylinder) have a crank sensor on the back side (engine side) of the ignition module extending into the engine block. The ignition module is the flat base that the ignition coils are attached to.

oxygen sensors are on the exhaust pipe close to the engine. Some are on the exhaust manifold. some may have an upstream and a down stream sensor.

Generally when the crank sensor goes out the engine will not start. The sensor on almost all vehicles is located in the front on the engine near the belts.In most cases it is held in place by a bolt.Usually they can be hard to get to.

The starter is located under the engine, right alongside the crank case. As you look to the front of the car, it's on the left side of the crank case.
