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.

If you're finding it difficult
to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all.
Plus i know a website that has very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime. www.reliable-store.com

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.
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
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
Remove the bolt that retains the sensor in place.
Remove the sensor from its mounting.To install:
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
Clearance between the sensor and the sensor wheel should be 0.020-0.059 inch.2002-2005
Properly connect the scan tool.
Start the engine and allow it to idle.
Be sure the idle position switch is ON.
Specifications are as follows:
Temperature - 4°F, test specification 1500-1700 RPMTemperature 32°F, test specification 1350-1550 RPMTemperature 68°F, test specification 1200-1400 RPMTemperature 104°F, test specification 1000-1200 RPMTemperature 176°F, test specification 650-850 RPM
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.
Hello martinezmelm: My name is Roger and I can answer your question. To locate the crankshaft position sensor. You will need to remove the timing cover. You will find the sensor on top of the crankshaft gear. Between the V of the timing belt.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
