Do you have a 2.5 or a 3.5?

The crank sensor is generally installed near the crank which means that it would be mounted low on the motor.
Sounds like you changed a cam position sensor not a crank position sensor.

Go here for a service manual and find what you need --> Nissan Service Manuals

It is a pain in the butt to do, but is certainly doable. It is on the back side of the engine. Remove the top engine cover and stick your arm down behind. The connector is a pain in the butt. You have to push the green tab IN, TOWARD the engine, while pulling the connector away from the engine. I recommend using a pocket screwdriver to push the tab. Then, remove the 10mm bolt that holds the sensor to the block and pull the sensor out. When you go to put your new sensor in, plug it in BEFORE you bolt it in. If you bolt the sensor in first, you WILL NOT be able to plug in the connector. Just trust me. Do this whole thing with the engine cold. It really sucks when it's hot, lol. Let me know if you have any problems!
