Charles, the crankshaft positioning sensor is behind the harmonic balancer. You have to remove the passenger side front tire to get to it.

You will then need to remove both of the serpentine belts, and then remove the crankshaft pully (aka harmonic balancer).

I am doing the same thing only I'nm having difficulty getting the crank pully removed.

If your are mechanical, then it really isn't a hard job. so far I have found that it just requires a little patience as you remove the belts and such.

Once I figure out how to get the crank pully removed, I'll send you another ereply on this post.

I would be sure the crank position sensor is your problem before replacing it.

****** CAUTION ******* THis is not the safest thing to do. . . but it works

Here's how got the bolt off:

I took a 10" extention for my 1/2" breaker bar, along with a cheater pipe and set the 1/2" end of the extention into the dmaper pully bolt.

I set the breaker bar and cheater pipe in place against the forward facing side of the yoke for the passenger side wheel.

I then cranked the car (WITHOUT TURNING IT ON) on the third crank that bolt came loose like shot through a gun :-)

King-Pin drives a 2004 Kia Sedona 3.5L. But his favorite is his 2007 Kawasaki Nomad and his 2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50. . . . oh yeah, and a Ford truck :)
