IF you look under the throttle body, the connector on the left closest to the radiator should be black, whcih is the speed sensor and the one on the right, which is grey is the crankshaft position sensor. They are both the same sensor but sense different things.
The lighter color one (grey) does go toward the rear of the car in a 15 degree anggle, which is the crankshaft sensor. And if the sensor is bad then you will not get a spark, not even fronm the ignition coil. What you can do is take out the crankshaft sensor, take out the speed sensor next to it, which s the black coded one, disconnect both, connect the speed sensor to the crankshaft connector under the throttle body, and slide in the sensor into the hole closest to the rear. Try to start the car. The car should start without the speed sensor. So, if the car starts using the speed sensor as the crankshaft sensor then you will know it is a bad crankshaft sensor.
I hope I made sense. Remember, the speed and crankshaft sensors are the exact same. Borrow the speed sensor and see if the car starts...
I didn't test the sensor because I don't have the equipment to test it.
