I've lurked on this message board for a while to get tips on getting my troublsome catera up and running. Well beside the $600 valve cover job:crybaby: I had done @ 100,000, my crankshaft sensor is out. I've got the new one in hand ($70) but needed to know where it was located, so that i may change it myself. Any info would be appreciated.

I don't know if you notice but the image says Hyundai. If I am not mistaken, the crankshaft position sensor on a 97 Catera is right beside the oil filter under the engine. You will notice it because it has wires connected to it wrapped with some heat protection material.

Wasn't the title of the post Crankshaft position sensor? The one posted with the image is about Camshaft position sensor.

I guess I was right as well in saying that it's beside the oil filter.
