Crankshaft and Camshaft location 05 Hemi 5.7

I had a lot of trouble locating the Crankshaft sensor to replace after the DTC flagged it. I also had poor acceleration and stalled out twice before I got it home. After reading I figured it was a good idea to replace the camshaft sensor at the same time since they appear to fail together.

Here's some pics of where to find it. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1421015510.234650.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1421015748.467006.jpg

This is from the oil pan looking up. Every sensor I have has become brittle and I broke the retention clip so put some duct tape around it to make it more secure. (Trolls can judge me on that if you like but I'm moving and no time to play around)

The camshaft sensor is next to the thermostat. I pulled the air resonator and filter cover and reached it with an extension.


BOTH TOOK 10mm socket.

Hope this helps.
