I'm not real familiar with the Kia but it will either be located at the front of the engine behind the fan pulley where the crank is located, or it will be at the back of the engine in reference to the crank. This does go out quit often and if yours is located at the front of the engine, it is usually more trouble to change or get to. Vehicles that I have changed them on usually run about $50-$65 but are fairly easy to replace by someone at home. Good Luck

You can't rule anything out yet. It could be a plug or injector among other things, but probably not low fuel pressure. If you have a code 300 and nothing else, you may have to wait until the problem gets bad enough to set additional codes. And if any of the sensors fail, such as the cam or crank sensors, you'll get a code for those to be tested.
Have the plugs been checked or replaced in the past 30,000 miles ?

Motor shut down engine code po 172 bank 1 to rich

You more than likely have a blown head gasket, the engine was burning coolant and caused the o2 sensor to malfunction, you will have this problem until it is fixed. Try adding a product called BARRS LEAK to the radiator, follow the instrutions on the can.

the very 1st thing for you to do is have the OBD 2 electronic engine control system tested for trouble codes, whenever you have a stall like this there is almost always a code that is stored for the problem, which in your case will most likely be a crankshaft position sensor, but do the test.

While driving car tach goes way up and car almost shuts off and cruise light came on and then it went off after giving some gas . got an engine light on and got a code 12 54 and 55.

My problem was similar. It would want to cut off while driving but keeps going. Had fuel pump replaced same thing. had throttle body cleaned and computer codes put back in. Same thing. No one figured what it was till it didn't start one day then start the next day the code told dealer it was the crank sensor. Friend has same car with the same problem it was the crank sensor.

1995 buick lesabre cutting off

You will want to have the crank sensor checked and check it for spark when this happens. The only problem is that it will need to be in the cut out mode to get a correct diagnosis. You can try and warm up the car and spray the crank sensor with water and see if it cuts out.If it does it is bad. This car has a high failure rate on the crank sensor and the ignition module. But when it is running good the two componats will test good. I've also seen computers just shut off in these cars for no aparent reason. Tuff to nail down in any event. Have it checked for codes and see if it has stored any thing. Let me know and I will try to help you further... Thanks. Dan
