The easiest way to remove these crankshaft sensors is to pull the transmission out. They are in a very poor location and anyone with a moderate size hand has trouble pulling these out without pulling the transmission out. The vehicle will not run if this sensor is out, and i recommend replacing it even if it wasn't bad if you ever have to work on your transmission or ever have transmission work done. Knowing you have a Dodge, presuming it's an automatic, you will, and i repeat, will have to get transmission work done.

SOURCE: Where is the crankshaft position
It is stuck in bellhousing of the transmission near the rear head. The new crank sensor will come with a piece of gasket paper on the end of the sensor. Install the sensor all the way in against the pick-up wheel. When you crank the engine the wheel will rip off the paper and the adjustment will be correct.

the crank sensor is on the right(passenger side) rear of the engine block you will need a mirror to see it it is acessed from the top of the engine to remove the bolts you need an extra long 1/4" allen socket it is a royal pain to get to i have changed too many and usually have to find it by "feel"
