The crank sensor is actually built into the distributor on this year (changed in 89). It is the four pointed mechanism underneath the rotor (white spinny thing), which is underneath the cap (black plastic thing, right of engine, 5 wires.)

The sensor is notorious for going bad, much before the electronics or coil. The coil is next in line, though.

It's a good idea to also touch the pickup coil and make sure that it doesn't move around. The distributors on these cars are well known to fail/fall apart. There are two different styles for 1988. Make sure you copy down the number off of the top of the distributor where it meets the head.
