Hope this helps.
Thanks for choosing Fixya,
Remove the sensor harness connection to the sensor.
Fig. 1: Unsecure the harness, then unfasten the bolt to remove the CKP sensor
Unsecure the sensor block bolt.
Remove the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor from the vehicle. Inspect the O-ring for cracks and replace if needed.
Install the new O-ring if needed and lubricate with engine oil.
Install the sensor into the hole in the block.
Install the mounting screw and tighten to 71-88 inch lbs. (8-10 Nm).
Attach the sensor harness connector, then connect the negative battery cable.
Dual Crank Sensor
Sections 3 and 4 of this manual also cover testing, removal and
installation, and adjustment of many computer controlled components.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the belt(s) from the crankshaft pulley.
Raise and support the vehicle safely.
Remove the right front wheel and inner fender access cover.
Remove the crankshaft harmonic balancer retaining bolt, then remove the harmonic balancer.
Disconnect the sensor electrical connector.
Remove the sensor and pedestal from the engine block, then separate the sensor from the pedestal.
Loosely install the crankshaft sensor to the pedestal.
Using tool J-37089 or equivalent, position the sensor with the pedestal attached, on the crankshaft.
Install the pedestal-to-block retaining bolts. Tighten to 14-28 ft. lbs. (20-40 Nm).
Tighten the pedestal pinch bolt 30-35 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
Remove tool J-37089 or equivalent.
Place tool J-37089 or equivalent, on the harmonic
balancer and turn. If any vane of the harmonic balancer touches the
tool, replace the balancer assembly.
NOTE: A clearance of 0.025 in. (0.635mm) is required on either
side of the interrupter ring. Be certain to obtain the correct
clearance. Failure to do so will damage the sensor. A misadjusted sensor
of bent interrupter ring could cause rubbing of the sensor, resulting
in potential driveability problems, such as rough idle, poor
performance, or a no-start condition.
Install the balancer on the crankshaft. Install
the balancer retaining bolt. Tighten the retaining bolt to 200-239 ft.
lbs. (270-325 Nm).
Install the inner fender shield.
Install the right front wheel assembly. Tighten the wheel nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).
THE thread is a std Left hand to undo But you will need a 3/4 drive100 lbs air rattle gun to both undo and redo up the bolt on front pully.. BUT there is another way and that is as you say a big breaker bar and a good socket, but you will have to take off the starter motor and put a good fitting bar into the starter ring teeth and turn it to the top and dont let it slip out of the teeth and once locked into place gently put pressure on and undo the bolt..
But its unusual for the seal to leak on its own as its mostly due to either the front pully has worn a grove in it or the crankshaft bearing is also worn, so check the front pully for wear first. Ron
The crank pulley? Is that the large pulley at the bottom of the motor? Also known as the "harmonic balance"?
Don't pull that one off unless you really have to... it can't be replaced since it is balanced to that particular engine...
If you have to remove it, you must replace it exactly correctly ...
The bolt is a left-hand bolt....
Turn the bolt clockwise to remove....
(not counter-clockwise like typical bolts).
No special tools required. The bold which holds the crankshaft pully on is a 22mm bolt. Once removed, you can remove the harmonic balancer and replace it with a new one. If you have access to an impact gun/wrench and compressed air at 90 psi, you can do this easily yourself -- the cost?.. depends if you get the part from a junk yard or from a Hyundai Parts department.
