SOURCE: crankshaft sensor for 2004 kia sorento

The above information about the sensor being located at the top of the motor to the passenger side of center is bogus. That is only the pig tail plug in. The actual sensor pig tail continues down below, underneath the plastic lower timing belt cover, on the front of the motor, just above the crankshaft timing gear.

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The sensor is located underneath the lower cover. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace this sensor, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it all.

I hope this helps.

It's a fault code connected with the intake manifold.

However, before you rush off and change it, have a look on the Internet. It seems that Kia had problems with this particular error code/or the software. Read about it first. Here's some links:

2011 Kia Sorento, engine code P2021 after oil pressure switch replacement. Any idea what could be causing this?


This code is related to the intake manifold runner control system. The operating solenoid would have to have been disconnected for intake manifold removal. It may have not been plugged back in or the solenoid may be defective.

P200A Intake Manifold Runner Performance (Bank 1) - General Information
Component Location
General Description
Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used for an adjustment of automotive flap and it is operated with two position, open and close. It makes swirl among intake air to reduce emission under cold start condition. This is worm gear driver type which doesn't guarantee restoring to limp home position in the case of loss of current supply. (This doesn't have mechanical return force due to no return spring.)
DTC Description
If PCM detects that the opened or closed stop position is out of the specified value, It sets P200A.

Check engine light code p200a


P200A Intake Manifold Runner Performance
The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used to adjust a valve (flap) in the intake runner for each cylinder. The valve does not close off the runner but restricts it in such a way to cause turbulence (swirl) in the air fuel mixture. The turbulence in the air will reduce emissions under cold start condition. The valve is operated by a worm gear type driver which doesn't open for limp home mode in the case of loss of current supply. (It doesn't have a return spring.) The system also has a Valve Position Sensor (VPS) to supply a feedback of the valve position to the PCM.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

Ouszen
