Default 2004 Kia Spectra (5 speed manual) Speed Sensor

The speedometer on my 2004 Spectra has worked on and off since I bought it in March. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it sputters and jumps up and down, and other times it just doesn't work at all. For the past month, it's been consistently out. I'm thinking it may have finally kicked it. My check engine light is on, but I was told that may be related to not having the stock gas cap which may cause issues with the pressure sensor in the tank. I have found that the issue may be due to the speed sensor, but I'm having trouble finding where that is. I can't really see the transmission very well from up top, and haven't had a chance to get under it. I've also found that the crankshaft position sensor is found in the timing belt system, but I'm not sure if that's the same thing as the speed sensor or not. Does anyone have any helpful pictures or videos that can show me where exactly the sensor should be located? I'm pretty sure the sensor is the issue, I just can't find where it is.
