      Where is this thing located? Ordered new part, waiting for it in the mail, but in the meantime trying to find info on how to install it is just nuts. I keep getting info for camshaft sensor (not the same). Anyone know where its located? I searched threads here but no luck

      In through the driver side wheel well, about 6 inches in front of the CV axle and up about 3 inches, right next to the seam of the transmission/engine over the fly wheel.

      No, but your car should be on ramps or stands so you can get under the car.

      It will be behind the fender liner, not easy to see with the wheel still on the car.

      Thanks to my small arms and hands...I was able to reach it from the top of the car with the coolant reservoir moved outta the way! Wasnt too bad, just a little tight of a fit, but I got the new one in. Fires up and works great now! Thanks to all the helpers
