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.

What do I do i replaced the engine in my 2007 Kia Spectra with an engine from a 2005 it idles good however it will not speed up what do I need to check for now?


i believe your vehicle has a speed sensor as well
as that throttle position sensor. If you did replave
the throttle position sensor, did you make sure
you put the new one back in the exact way you
pulled the old one out? There may be a camshaft
sensor giving you a problem. There are several
sensors that may have something to do with that.

Ineed to know where my camshaftsensor on a 2006 kia spectra 5 is located


The camshaft Position Sensor in a 2006 Kia Spectra is located in the cylinder head on the right side of the head near the front of the engine. (if you are standing at the passenger fender area, this will be on YOUR left on the side of the engine nearest the windshield.) (See Diagram)

NOTE: if you are trying to fix a cam sensor code, it should be noted that MANY cam sensor fault codes can be caused by things OTHER than a defective cam sensor. For example, loose timing belt components can cause erratic cam sensor readings and cause the computer to set a code for the cam sensor. Proper diagnosis should be performed.

2002 kia spectra that cranks but wont fire has fuel presure and spark


Has fuel pressure and spark, but I would say that you have a bad sensor, maybe cam or crank.
The best way to tell is to have a scan tool hooked up and find the code(s) and please let me know what you find.
