Question about 2002 Kia Optima
Crank sensor location
Posted on Oct 29, 2008
Just because the crank sensor sets a code that does not mean the sensor is defective, it means there is a problem in the crank sensor circuit, that can be the sensor, the sensor connector, the sensor wiring or in some rare cases the PCM (computer)

It also could be the cam sensor........ they share the same 5 volt supply

You sghould check to verify that fuel is reaching to the rails. There is a possibility that there might be a fuel blockage before the rails

SOURCE: The car cranks but won't start
Ok, check the following below--
1. Check the Ignition control Module for its operational value. it may be damaged.
2. Check the coils.
3. Check the plugs and wires.
4. Check the ECM/PCM/ECU(All represent the same device that is commonly known as the engine control computer)
Check these areas thoroughly for faults. I would also advise to replace the fuel filter and fuel pump as well.

I would check the timing belt probably broke. Best way pull the cam sensor out take a flashlight shine it down in the hole and have someone turn it over. u should see it turning if you don't the timing belt is broke. good luck
