Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on a 1997 Mitsubishi eclipse gsx turbo?

In my '97 Eclipse GST (the convertible model of your car), the Crankshaft Position Sensor, or Crankshaft Angle Sensor, is located behind the crankshaft pulley. To get to it, the Mitsubishi shop manual lists the removal of the timing belt. Not a fun job. Since the timing belt will be removed anyways, this is a good time to install a new belt. The Mitsubishi dealership also suggested replacing the timing belt tensioner when re-installing the timing belt.

Where is the crankcase sensor on a 93 Oldsmoble Cutlass Supreme?

If you are referring to the Crankshaft sensor, or crank angle sensor it is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment near the harmonic balancer. (For the 3.1 L) I have a 95 with a 3.1L and it had intermitant missing and starting problems. I replaced the crank position sensor (which was located behind the harmonic balancer) and the camshaft position sensor (located under the power steering pump) and it corrected the problem.

3000GT Crankshaft sensor locationIt is located on the crankshaft. Looking at the engine from the drivers side it is located on the left of the crankshaft or towards the front of the car. May not be easy to see. Actually, if your talking about the crank angle sensor, which determines ignition timing by reading when the crank is spinning, it is located on the passenger side right next to the intake plenum. There is going to be three connectors horizontally attached to a bracket above it, and the plug for the sensor itself is vertical. It looks like the end of cylinder head, i.e. a circle with a bolt on the upper right corner.
