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.
