Question about 2004 Kia Rio
I went to auto zone and purchased a crank sensor do you think it was an after market
Yes, that would be an aftermarket unit. Don't put it on! Take it back and get your money back, and go to dealer-get an oem (original equipment manufacture) sensor. May cost more, but too many horror stories abound with putting sensitive after market sensors on cars. Too often, they just don't work as well as original manufacturer parts. Some things are fine as aftermarket, but I wouldn't recommend electronic parts that communicate with the engine computer.

On 2001-2005 vehicles the crankshaft sensor is mounted on the front of
the transmission case adjacent to the flywheel.
Please rate and god bless:)

It may just be cold weather that's making your O2 sensor toss a code to the computer. If the car starts to chug when you drive it you will probably want to have a shop look at it.

Testimonial: "thanks - did wonder about it being related to severely cold weather. Did take it to garage last saturday, but couldn't find the problem. "
Sounds like most of Kia problems...timing belt !
BEWARE that this is an "Interference Engine", meaning the valves and pistons "interfere" with each other and more than likely serious damage has already occurred.
If this is in fact the case engine will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
