Exclamation Check Engine Light

1996 mazda mpv 3.0 v6

P0335 - crankshaft position sensor A circuit

Where is the location of the sensor? My car does not start.
---------------------

EDIT 1: Ok I have found the location. I took out the sensor. Am I looking for ohms or volts? And by how much?

EDIT 2: With some help from the net, I checked the sensor for voltage including ohms. I set my meter to auto AC.

I got 0.0531 volts while cranking. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
I measured for ohms and got 1.1331k ohms. I'm not sure if that's good or bad either.

The car doesn't start, but when the vehicle is cold, I can get it to crank 3 times, but after that I have to wait about 20 seconds so I can crank it again. I've only cranked it about 6 times now. During cranking, I hear fuel surging a bit but the car is not starting. I try not to crank a lot because I'm afraid it will flood the spark plugs.

Any ideas whether or not this sensor is good or bad? I really need help.
----------------------------

EDIT 3:

FIXED
