My 2004 Kia Sorento's Crankshaft sensor code

My Sorento kept shutting down while driving down road. Crankshaft Sensor code came up. Had sensor replaced. They started vehicle after repair, and it runs terrible, like timing is off (didn't do before), and now the Camshaft sensor code is coming up. Could both sensors go out at same time, or could this be another problem? I don't want to keep buying parts and then get another code come after repair.

My advice to u is get a second opinion (I know its a pain in the ,,,,,,,,) MAKE SURE THE WORK COMES W A WARANTEE. Its very unusual for 2 sensors to go out at the same time, it may be an electrical problem. GET THAT WARANTEE. Codes don't mean a sensor is bad

SOURCE: crankshaft sensor for 2004 kia sorento

The above information about the sensor being located at the top of the motor to the passenger side of center is bogus. That is only the pig tail plug in. The actual sensor pig tail continues down below, underneath the plastic lower timing belt cover, on the front of the motor, just above the crankshaft timing gear.

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The sensor is located underneath the lower cover. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace this sensor, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it all.

I hope this helps.

p0335 is a crank shaft sensor error. This sensor is what tells the ECM when to send spark to plugs. That is why it wont start.

Car cranks and runs, but when warms up, running down the road it shuts off. When it cools off, it will crank again. It has a v 6 engine.


Your crankshaft sensor could be bad. There has been a recall for your model, take it to your local kia dealship if you havn't had this fix yet. It is dangerous and could cause death when driving. You can google on more information about this recall. Just type in crankshaft recall sorento.
