I see there is a lot of posts here about the Crankshaft Position Sensor. I have a 2000 Eldorado and have to replace them. I have no idea where they are. I am not going to pay the dealer $400.00 to replace them. The car just randomly dies on the road. Thanks

If you are under the car, lying on your back, feet sticking out from the front bumper, they are on the front of the engine block (front of car facing radiator) just to the left of the oil filter.

I thought there was a How To thread on changing these...

Oh yeah, there are some electrical thread that could really use the techs help...

Well, I am not a "Tech". I usually don't check the electrical section because that is not my strong point. Unless it is very basic, there are many people here who are very knowledgable about electronics. I have trouble remembering the difference between a volt, amp, watt & ohm.:bonkers:
