Raise the hood of the car and locate the crankshaft sensor. It is at the lower right of the exhaust manifold. The sensor is installed in the transaxle housing that is bolted to the engine.

I have an 03 kia optima lx my car will cut off while I'm driving. Can you please tell me what the problem is. I would very much appreciate your input on this matter


this is caused by the crankshaft position sensor located behind the timing belt. this sensor cuts off the power to the spark plug so the car won't start. it happened with my kia and then everything went fine!

2005 optima ckankshaft sensor


2005 optima cranksensor if you are a 2.4 the CKP sensor is located at front of crankshaft,behind the timing belt cover. If your engine is running rough or stalling try shaking the sensor connector to see if it affects engine operation. Inspect the male to female terminal for proper fit. If you are a 2.7 the CKP sensor is mounted on left side of engine block, near the fly wheel. For either engine size if you are cranking the engine and your tach reads zero,you are dealing with a failed CKP.

Need how to set timing belt on kia optima


I had 2006 kia optima 2.4 liter LX, I drove 150000 miles plus, it was over 100,000 miles I changed timing belt, and AC belt, alternator belt is still ok, but it was my fault, I did not change crank shaft balance belt, it next to timing belt, this very important, timing belt and crank shaft balance belt must change same time, you set all mark the same positions, you can see all clear marked
if you had OBD2 scanner is helpful to read all faulty codes if you do it your self repair
if you have any problems about KIA optima, please post on any websites, to share some ideas to other KIA optima owners, like me, I change oil every 2500 miles to make my optima runs smoother
automatic transmission fluid change every year if you put high mileage on your car, optima had hard time to find it own part some time, radiator hoses are still good condition and had hard time to find in any auto part stores in my home town, good luck and thanks for sharing.

6cyl LX location of the crankshaft sensor


The crankshaft position sensor is bolted to the block about a quarter inch away from your crank. Not the crank pulley but the actual crank. This means removing the cover for the timing belt and the timing belt itself along with many other parts. I have a 06 kia optima and I had to replace my crankshaft sensor, believe me you do not want to try unless you are mechanically inclined. If you remove the timing belt cover and look right next to the crank there is a little plastic piece bolted on with 2 bolts. That would be your crank sensor. Don't take timing belt off until you have all components lined up oil pump, crank, cams, etc. Also mark your belt at the marks when they are lined up so when you put it back on you know its right. If you do decide to replace it and you need some advice let me know and I would be glad to help. Hope that info helps you out.

Engine stopped while driving chk eng light on, engine turns but won't start. Computer shows crank position sensor failure w/3 occurances & several emission sensor codes.


A crank-no start condition can definitely be caused by a faulty crank sensor; if after testing the crank sensor and finding it defective you will need to clear the codes and drive for at least a couple of drive cycles to see if the emission codes are legitimate or were simply induced by the failure of the crank sensor.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2006 Kia Optima Lx?


sgutowski283: the LX had 2 different engines which could have been in you car. However, KIA has engineered their engines to where the oil filter is located at the very front of the engine below the front crank pulley on both the 4 and 6 cylinder engines.
STAY AWAY FROM CHEAP OIL AND CHEAP OIL FILTERS! You engine will last for 200,000 miles easily, if taken care of.
Good luck, Give the folks at FIXYA some feed back if your happy with my assistance.
Thanks.

This could be multiple issues.
1.) timing belt
2.) Crank sensor
3.) Fuel pump (although usually they do not just die they get weak)

Check these let me know.
