UNDER HOOD, CENTER, REAR ENGINE AREA, BELOW EGR VALVE, MOUNTED IN ENGINE BLOCK You can only get to the crankshaft sensor from the bottom of your car, it's gonna be like a feeling game. It's right behind and above the starter. You're gonna need a 10mm 1/4" drive rachet. You may be able to see it from the top to get a good idea. Green connector with one yellow wire and one purple. I just changed mine today. It's pretty easy, if you jack the car up high enough. Please be sure to block your wheels and use heavy duty jackstands for safety (not cheap aluminum ones). Also remove the negative battery cable first so you don't burn yourself on starter connections. Be sure to where your safety glasses under vehicle.

The 1997 Chevy Malibu crankshaft position sensor can be found on the back of the engine. You will need to remove the rear engine cover in order to access the crankshaft position sensor.
