SOURCE: 2000 kia sportage ex, 4 cyl.

For that many codes I would refer you to a bulletin covering the 123 and 124 connectors. This bulletin has instructions on how to upgrade these 2 connectors which connect the engine to the ECM. The connectors are located under the intake manifold towards the firewall. You need to remove the battery, pull the connectors apart, give the male side a slight twist, then you add Stabulent 22 to the connectors and reconnect. The dealerships also add some clips to hold the connectors together better. This task is not an easy one due to the location of the connector. I have done it many times in the past and this helped many of my costomers. Anither thing to check is the continuity to ground at the MAF. This also can indicate bad connection throughout the engine harness. to upgrade this connection, clean the ground connections at the battery and under the battery tray. these simple uperations should have been made into normal maintenance for the 95 - 99 Sportages.

The crankshaft pos. sensor is located on the left "driver" side of the engine on the bellhousing and is retained by a single 10mm bolt.The sensor may be tight,be sure to twist as you pull so that it doesnt break off in the bottom end.

SOURCE: 2002 kia rio, where is the crankshaft position

A crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is mounted on the front of transmission case adjacent to the flywheel. The CKP sensor is a hall-effect type sensor that generates voltage using a sensor and a target wheel mounted on the crankshaft. There are 58 slots and one longer slot on the target wheel. When the slot in the wheel aligns with the sensor, the sensor voltage output is low (approx. 0V). and it is high (approx.5V) when a slot is not aligned with the sensor. During one crankshaft rotation there are 58 rectangular signals and one longer signal. The ECM calculates the frequency to compute engine rpm to determine the injection duration and ignition timing. Using the signal differences caused by the longer slot, ECM identifies which cylinder is on top dead center

SOURCE: how to change crankshaft position sensor 2004 kia

1st this is for a well experienced home tech with a full tool set, if you get this wrong u can damage the engine.
It is about a 1 hr 20 minutes getting down to the crank sensor. Now remember, I’ve never worked on this car before and there really is a lot to move/remove to get to the whole timing belt and all of it’s components. Your time SHOULD be about 1 hour with these instructions and NO problems with getting bolts and nuts loose.

Add about another hour or so to get it all back together and you should be on the road in a total of about 3 hrs!

2000 kia sportage,replaced f/pump/filter,ecm,relays,coils,plugs,wires,still won't start

Since fuel supply side have been changed, try looking into the ignition side. It will be much simpler if you scan your car for error codes. Less guesswork and lower repair cost. Without codes, next to check would be Crankshaft Position Sensor and Camshaft position Sensor. If both OK and all relays are OK, you should have spark.

Where is the crankshaft sensor located on the 2000 Kia Sportage?

The ckps is in the bell housing of the transmission so it can read the flywheel. Should be right on the side held in by 1 bolt and should be twisted back and forth if resistance is felt so it doesn't break. Let me know if you need anything else.
