Part is around $70-135 depending on exacct engine and whether you get aftermarket or OEM sensor - labor typically one hour though there may be a minimum trip charge, so total cost probably $150-300 depending on local cost.

I did a quick check of the most common 2002 civic engines - does NOT require significant teardown of the engine - just removal of a plastic cover and wiring connection, a retaining bolt and take out the sensor, then reverse the process with the new sensor. Probably a 15 minutes actual work for an experienced mechanic - not including getting the part.

Search the List category for mobile mechanics is unfortunately the same as for shop-based ones, so you would have to probably google for local mobile auto mechanics, then check by company name for any Angies List profile with ratings and reviews.

BTW - on Honda's I believe they call it a CMP Sensor - Crankshaft Position Sensor, though it does the same thing as a TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Different car makes/models call them different things - some measure the crankshaft position (most accurate), some cheat and measure a camshaft position which gets less accurate as timing chain/belt wears, and is totally useless if the timing jumps a gear tooth or the belt jumps.
