1999 Ford Contour Cps?

Hi, where is the cranshaft position sensor located on this car. I went to autozone, however they couldn’t show me or find it in their book. They did have the part for the car.
Thanks

The crankshaft position sensor is located on the left hand rear of the block on the 2.0 engine.

Thanks for the info, because I went back to autozone later and they told me it was in back of the car by the gas tank.

There is no way a crankshaft position sensor is next to the gas tank.

How could they sell you the correct part for the car if they couldn’t find it in their book?
