96 Contour Crankshaft Position Sensor

Hello, I own a 1996 Ford Contour GL and I've been having problems with the car not creating a spark. I was driving it one day and it just shut off on me and didn't start again. The engine will crank but it wont turn over. I want to try to see if the Crankshaft position sensor is the problem but I am having trouble locating the part. If anyone could explain it to me and possibly show some visuals that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What engine do you have? 2.0 or 2.5?

Yes, opposite side of the engine to the starter. You'll have to get it from underneath. Don't forget the jack stands.
