Hyaundai Sonata 2.4 how 2006 Changed cam and crank sensors idle improved. But still a problem, worse if I push the clutch in. Is there a sensor on the clutch plate?

If engine has high miles it could be bad thrust bearing. Also possible bad clutch release bearing, loose flywheel or pressure plate bolts. Always clear codes after replacing bad sensors.

Flywheel keeps breaking

By breaking I assume you mean into pieces? The only thing that would cause this is a badly misaligned transmission. Any other problems would cause such vibration you would not drive the vehicle .

Wheres crankshaft sensor located

which engine,?
why not post symptoms and not guess causes.?
CKP is the name for this part.
was introduced in 1996 here. and up to 2006 in other countries.

the 2.0L the CKP sensor is behind the flywheel (must pull transmission and flywheel to get to it)
ive posted the photo of that here, on fixya 5 times. searches work.
or is the engine the V6? 2.5 (H25 H27engine)

did you know the PCM if scanned will report bad CKP every time.!
even cranked?
same is true if the CAM sensor fails, at end of CAM>

the V6 engine the CKP sensor (crank) is at 7pm facing from
of the engine crank pulley housing on front if engine at front of crankshaft.
if have FSM on both engines, if stated.
use a scan tool and see the errors.
the errors will tell you what sensor is failing if in fact they are.
the tool is as cheap as $10

ah heck,
ill do G16g engine too (USA) the CKP sensor is at
6pm below the crank-pulley on the pan flange,
all USA 1996 and newer. not true in other countries.
some have no CKP at ALL, A FACT.

Start sounds like its smacking the flywheel

A broken starter, 99.9% of the time, is caused by an engine backfire. Whatever caused the backfire is what ruined your spark plugs. From my experience, the most common culprit would be a bad crankshaft position sensor.

Lot of stumbling and hesitation

Grinding noise likely came from the starter drive and flywheel. That in itself can cause a problem as damaged flywheel teeth can cause incorrect signals to the crank position sensor and therefore bad info to the computer.
Some poor running can be attributed to the computer itself as most need to be "flashed" by a dealer to program it to your drivetrain.
I also question the reason for the computer replacement as there are many symptoms that appear to be computer related but in reality are caused by a failed sending unit (sensor), bad connection, broken, grounded or shorted wire or blown fuse that are sometimes missed during diagnosis, resulting in a computer replacement and the same problem that caused you to change it re-surfacing.
I can't tell you what the problem is because to give you that answer would require many hours of actual hands on testing. Chilton has decent wiring and test procedures in their manual. I suggest you buy it if you haven't already. As you "prove out" each system, make notes so you can develop a "picture" of what you found. That often helps bring things together.
By the way...What was the original problem?

I've just replaced the entire clutch, flywheel and F1 sensor on my Quatroporte to overcome a problem with the car 'going into neutral' whilst driving, I was told this was becasuse of excessive clutch wear,...

Generally the problem you have is related to bad synchro gears inside the transmission or worn shift forks (also inside) This sometimes can be caused by driving with a bad clutch, which causes you to force the gears while shifting, but can happen from normal wear as well.

Crankshaft Sensor

what ever u mounted fom the old flywheel was not a magnet....the magnet is internal to the cranksensor and the flywheel slots trigger the sensor....whatever you attached maybe causing this code
