Question about 2002 Kia Spectra
Could you please tell me where to find the camshaft position sensor on my 2002 kia spectra? I need to replace it but don't know where it is on the car.
I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.

check the belt,if its out it will flag up this code,your car will run on sequential firing from the crankshaft sensor,failing that put an oscilloscope on the signal wire at the sensor and ecu its possible the ecu might not be seeing the signal,start with the basics first
