So I've been searching for an hour or so and can't find this. I need to change my Crankshaft Position Sensor but I can't find where it's located. I have a 2009 3.7L I5. Can anyone tell me where it's located?

What is the GM Pipe sealer in the regular world? Is it like a high temp gasket maker or something?
well sh*t... that seems to me something only a dealer can do? I have OBDII reader that I clear check engine stuff with but I don't have a scan tool.
Teflon tape works in a pinch.

I was thinking I might use teflon tape. But if I have a learn procedure anyway, do you think I'd be able to limp the truck to the dealership with the new sensor not "learned" in, so they could learn it for me?
I appreciate that. I called the dealer to see if they'd do the relearn process for me and they read me what you posted word for word. But they couldn't tell me if the truck would run with out re-learning.
Just to report back, I put the new sensor in today and I did not need the re-learn process. One problem I had was that when I set my torque wrench for 7.3 lbs/ft (89 lbs/in) I felt the bolt start to strip. I'm not sure if my wrench is out of calibration or what but here's hoping it does not leak!
