the 3.9,5.2&5.9 all have a crank sensor. It is mounted to the bell housing over the flywheel at the rear of the engine. You can back trace the wiring from the distributor to find it.3.9 does not have one. If I remember the v8s dont have one also,

[Edit] '87 through '91 'LA' V8 and V6 use a hall-effect cam position sensor in the distributor and have no crank sensor, '92 and up 'Magnum' use a crank sensor which will be mounted at the upper rear of the engine to 'read' the flexplate or flywheel through a slot in the bellhousing.[Edit] The part is called a "pick up coil" it's a round piece with a wire going into it you can access under the distributor cap and does essentially the same task as crankshaft position sensors. Only on the 'LA' 170hp V8.

No crank sensor, only the sensor in the distributor.

i have a 92 Dakota and the sensor was behind the engine closer to the passenger's side, if you want to get that becauseyour truck is stalling you should also consider buyin a computer, because i tried a bunch of stuff, and the computerwas the source of the problem

A 1991 Dodge Dakota will have either a V6 or a V8 engine.
