It is located on transmission housing, facing flywheel gear teeth. You must change it from under the car.

Do I have to remove the wheel to get to the sensor? Could you send me the video to show how it is done?
No need to do that. That would mean removing the transmission first. We don"t have videos but the sensor is held in by one bolt and a wire plug on the outside of the bellhousing. The hardest part is just reaching it.
Correction.I re-read your question. I thought you said flywheel. Removing the wheel might help gain access, you will have to look and see if you can access it through the wheel well.
I have a 98 pathfinder chilkoot that was running very rough and then stalled out. The code was p0335 crankshaft position sensor. That made sense. All the parts stores had the part for a 3.3l v6 98 pathfinder. The trouble is the mechanic couldn"t find it on the truck. I phoned Nissan and after some confusion the mechanic said mine didn"t have a crank position sensor on the engine, it was in the distributor. I"ve checked my vin online and now I"m not even sure if it is a 3.3l The vin comes up with a Nissan VG30d which I don"t know what that is. A 3.0l maybe. The vin is jn8ar05y3ww266132. Any chance you know about this. I do remember when I got a new distributor before, the parts guy said to make sure which month it was made because there were 2 different models that year.
I"ve got three mechanics including two mechanics at different Nissan dealers that say it"s not on the block. I"m really at a loss.
That makes it a little difficult. All my references show the 98 Pathfinder as having a VG33E 3.3l engine, which has the crank sensor on the rear of the block. I"m seeing a VG30E on the Sentra, but it also has a CPS on the rear of the block.
