Hey Huggy just changed my crankshaft sensor today. I had the same problem with my 2011 jeep compass awd. It just started cutting off while driving. Code said crankshaft position sensor. You cant access it from underneath on an awd the trans. blocks everything. So remove the top cover an air filter box. Then look at the top right rear side of the engine you'll see the camshaft sensor.. THIS IS NOT IT... looks the same...but the crankshaft sensor wire is binded to that wire... follow that wire down behind the right rear of the block. I used a small mirror an flashlight to see it... you will see a heat cover.. i jus bent it out the way an the sensor is under it. It has one 10mm bolt holding it in. Use a 12 inch ext. to get to it. Wiggle the sensor an it will eventually come out. No prying necessary. If that wasnt tricky enough getting that bolt back in is even harder. I was halfway in the engine bay. I used the extension by hand an used a napkin over the bolt too hold the bolt in the ext tight so you wont drop it. Be patient you'll get it.. start to finish took me 1.5 hrs. Hope this helps anyone thinking about doing this themselves.
