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.

SOURCE: I am changing the spark plugs on my 2004 Kia sorento

Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

SOURCE: How do you change head lights on a 2004 kia sorento?

The whole headlight assembly needs to be removed from the vehicle to access the lamps inside; especially on the side with the battery (left side).

Remove 3 10m bolts (one on top two on front)

Headlight assembly is held in place wth a large Nylon clip ear outer edge at bottom of the unit. Tilt out at the top and then pull forward and upward to remove. It fels like something's gonna break, but it's pretty tough.

Remove large round cap from behind either high or low beam lamp. Both lamps are hels in with a metal spring clip. Low beam is H-7, high beam is H-3.

To re-install, press bar into Nylon clip and then install 3 10mm bolts. Use a Torx bit to engage gear teeth and adjust height if necessary. There may or may-not be adjusters for left-right alignment.

SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

Where is the oil pump on kia sorento 2004 2.5 diesel?


It could be in the sump, find the filter where it screws on and that will give you an idea, first check the oil pressure as it might be only a faulty switch, cheers hope this helps. If the oil pressure is low then it will be main bearings.
