Crankshaft position sensor replacement on 2005 Kia Sedona

Could you tell me where I can find a manual or some sort of schematic that will help me know how to replace a crankshaft position sensor on a 2005 Kia Sedona. Or Step by step directions would be even better. I am very mechanically inclined but dont know enough about the engine in my wifes Sedona to know where to start and the shop says they would have to take off the front of the engine to the tune of $1200. Any help would be appreciated.

    Where do I start on this project? Is there a schematic with torque references etc that I should adhere to.

  • slbnst Jan 26, 2010

    The shop told me I had to take off the front of the engine and that the sensor is next to the timing belt. From what your saying it is an external fix or do i have to get to the timing belt to replace it?

    CAM shaft position sensor is visable at the top. CRANKSHAFT is at the bottom behind the main pulley and requires more work

    just diconnect the plug connector and use 10 mm socket or spanner to take off the sensor bolt, if you want use torque wrench to tight the sensor bolt, set it to 10Nm.

    you can take off the air intake hose and filter housing if you think it make more easy for you to access the Sensor replacement (but not really neccessary)

  • Archer SIlva Jan 27, 2010

    the crank shaft position sensor is mounted on top of transmission housing and it getting signal from flywheel or back plate thats why you dont have to take off the front timing covers. if you want to make sure have a look the sensor and compare the sensors located at top of transmission housing that sensor have three wires.

    WRONG. Crankshaft position sensor is on the left hand side of the engine. remove the top shroud off the engine, the front timing belt cover, left wheel, and the splash guard behind it. Also requires removing an additional cover that sits behind the main BOTTOM pulley. Have not gotten that far yet, but that is where the wire traces too. Will post to my blog with complete pictures.

Where is the crankshaft position/crank angle sensor located on a 2005 kia sedona


Hi, at the front of the crankshaft. if its near time for the timing belt, you want to replace it along with any pullies, tensioner and water pump


The crankshaft position sensor is mounted on the engine near the crankshaft.

Operation

The crankshaft position sensor is a Hall-Effect sensor that senses the crank angle (piston position) of each cylinder and converts it into a pulse signal. The signal from the sensor is relayed to the ECM to indicate engine rpm and the position of the crankshaft.

Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the bolt that retains the sensor in place.
  4. Remove the sensor from its mounting. To install:
    1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
    2. Clearance between the sensor and the sensor wheel should be 0.020-0.059 inch. 2002-2005
      1. Properly connect the scan tool.
      2. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
      3. Be sure the idle position switch is ON.
      4. Specifications are as follows:

        Temperature - 4°F, test specification 1500-1700 RPM Temperature 32°F, test specification 1350-1550 RPM Temperature 68°F, test specification 1200-1400 RPMTemperature 104°F, test specification 1000-1200 RPM Temperature 176°F, test specification 650-850 RPM

2005 Kia Sedona, Trouble Code P0320. Everything I read online tells me its a Crankshaft Sensor. I called Kia and then sent me to www.kiatechinfo.com were it says that the code is an Ignition System Failure...


This is a common problem usually related to the crankshaft position sensor. Before you replace it, disconnect the electrical connector to the CPS sensor and clean it with electrical contact spray and add a dab of dielectrical grease. If the problem continues, replace the CPS sensor. It is easy to replace and is not very expensive. It just bolts to the engine block with one or two bolts. I believe the CPS sensor on the Sedona is behind the timing cover on the front of the engine.

I went to have an emissions test and I failed.


code P0320 stored.
Tests/Procedures:
1. Check if the oil pump drive housing has rotated on the hold down clamp. If it has, replace the oil pump drive gear and housing.

2. Scope the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor.

3. Scope the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor.

Potential Causes: Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP)
Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP)
Distributor Sync

Only a qulified mechanic will be able to tell you the cost once he eliminates each possibility.
