Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My crankshaft position sensor is either loose broken or something

My santa fe keeps dieing out especially in intersections where the idle is low i took it to my local autozone and they ran the code and found the crankshaft position sensor to be either defective, or not connected well to the wiring or the trigger wheel could have damage, i need to know where this sensor is so i can either replace it or make sure it is properly connected

On the 2.4 liter 4-cylinder, it's located at the front of the engine at the crankshaft,.. on the 2.7 V6, it's located on the block near the transmission on the left hand side (radiator side), .. .and on the 3.5 V6, at the front of the engine at the crank shaft.

Generally on the santa fe it is located just behind the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer (the pully lowest in the engine compartment driven by the drive belt).

2004 2.7L Santa Fe. Check engine light on got scan code P0304 replaced camshaft position sensor ck engine light went out now back on with same code replaced crankshaft sensor light went out for 2 days...

It's called a "dead" cylinder and you did right by replacing the cam sensor. Still does it though? Do a ohm meter test on the injectors to find if one is bad. The one that shows the lowest reading compared to the rest is the bad one. Code being P0304 means it's #4 cylinder dead. IF that injector shows a low reading, replace it or have it cleaned professionally. If the test shows all injectors reading the same, 16.5 or so, none are bad. do a compression test on all cylinders, if you find #4 cylinder is on the low side with a compression test, you have a bad exhaust valve and must give it attention.

My 2004 hyundia Santa fe won't start it just die out a code came up 0335 changed crankshaft sensor still won't start changed camshaft sensor won't start changed ecu same thing there is no spark to spark...

Check fuses under the hood. When the crankshaft sensor shorts, it often blows this fuse. It is a 10 amp fuse. I don't remember what number it is off hand but it will be efi related.

2004 santa fe (4 cyl model) low jumpy idle and low power at slow speeds and idle ..... very jumpy. Transmission has checked out ok. Seems to worsen if you have the air conditioner on.

Do you have a check engine light? If so have Autozone tell you what engine code is ( free). Sounds like could be cranck shaft position sensor. Symptoms sound just like what ours was doing before we replaced sensor.

I just bought a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. The owner said they were driving and it just quit. It still turns over but doesnt fire. There is spark and compression. The timing belt is not broken but is cracking...

Probably needs a crankshaft position sensor. If the belt is cracking a piece of the belt might have damaged the "eye" in the sensor or may be blocking the "eye" ( the timing belt runs right over top of the sensor at the crankshaft). Or it could be one of many other things: bad ecu, bad ignition coils, camshaft position sensor, etc, etc.
