My C18XEL (same management, Simtec 56.1) had a pretty low idle speed as well.

I doubt it's the crank sensor, when they fail, the engine stops working :lol:

But if you must **** about with it, it's on the front of the block (follow the wire over the cam cover) and held on by (if memory serves) a 10mm bolt.
