Question about Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

What's the name of the part that "partners" with the Crankshaft position sensor on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata? I know it's the "ring" or "plate" that triggers the sensor to send a signal, but I don't know its appropriate name.

I believe you are referring to the reluctor wheel, in some cases it may be called an interrupter.

How to replace crankshaft sensor on 2001 sonata V6

  • Disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable to prevent accidental shorts that could damage the electronic control module.

  • Find the crankshaft position sensor. It may be on the front of the engine, on the side or in the rear. A shop manual should be able to tell you where it is for your car's year, make and model.

  • Disconnect the 3 wires that lead to the crankshaft sensor. One of these is the current feed, and the other 2 are the ground wire and the sensor's output. Keep track of which is which--They will connect to the corresponding places on the replacement sensor.

  • Remove the crankshaft position sensor. If it is mounted on the front of the engine, the sensor will typically be fitted into a bracket hole and will be secured with a small bolt, which must be removed.

  • Install the replacement sensor and connect the three wires. Most sensors lock into position and do not require adjustment. If the sensor is on the side of the engine, you will likely need to install a new rubber O-ring. Do not reinstall the O-ring that came off when the old sensor was removed. For the handful of crankshaft position sensors that need adjustment, you can often use a paper spacer placed on the end of the sensor. When finished, reconnect the battery.

    P0335 = Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
    This is a sensor used to let the computer know where in the rotation the crankshaft is so it knows when to fire the sparkplugs (among other things). The sensor may be bad or just the connection.

    I can't find the location of the crankshaft postion sensor in my 2000 Hyundai sonata

    My online Sonata manual shows these possibilities, but does not identify which applies specifically to 2000 Sonata.
    Also, when you talk to the dealership parts counter, you'll need to know whether your 2000 Sonata is (a) 4-cylinder 2.4L MFI DOHC engine, or (b) 6-cylinder 2.5L MFI DOHC engine.
    Its easy to tell - just count your spark plug wires.

    -- begine excerpt from 2000 Hyundai Sonata Repair guide --

    The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel.
    The crankshaft position sensor is located next to the flywheel/torque converter.
    The camshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the timing belt cover and under the upper radiator hose.
    The crankshaft position sensor is located on the driver-s side of the vehicle, down by the lower radiator hose.
    The crankshaft position sensor is located on the engine near the crankshaft pulley.
    The crankshaft position sensor is located at the front of the engine near the timing belt.

    1995 hyundai sonata turns over but will not start

    sounds like a crank position sensor. Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDI/II (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
