A bad crankshaft position sensor will cause your Kia Sorrento to run rough. The bad crankshaft position sensor can also cause your Kia to not start.
I have a 2006 Cadillac CTS. What are the symptons of the crankshaft sensor going out?
When a position sensor is going bad the engine could run rough, or cut off for no apparent reason. Or, the engine may not start at all.
It senses whether your crankshaft has packed up, and if so, warns you of such. Driving without a crankshaft is dangerous! It can lead to not going anywhere fast, and is often a sign of owning a Chrysler product. The Crankshaft Sensor communicates to the computer what position the motor is in so it can fire the appropriate spark plugs and fuel injectors in a continuous cycle, or firing order.
yes if its faulty its like going into safe mode your engine will not fire drive safe
When a crankshaft sensor is bad the engine will not run. The sensor is not usually intermittent, it is either good or bad.
Crankshaft Position Sensor is by the starter and the general position. IF your going to change it, you'll have to do a re-learn with a scanner, if not your check engine light wil come on and might run mighty ruff.
The camshaft sensor is the same as the crankshaft sensor it is local on the passenger side of the valve cover . And going down to your crankshaft inside the timing belt cover
Well, I'm not going to "show" you, but I'll tell you where it is. Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine you would locate your crankshaft pully (under your alternator). The sensor is located to the right of center of that crankshaft pully bolted to the engine block. Needless to say if you have to change the sensor you are going to have to remove a bunch of stuff, but before you do that you can access the wires coming out of that area and test their continunity before proceeding further.
It's located next to the crankshaft pulley (the timing belt is going around it). You will not miss it. There is only one sensor there.
Before you replace timing gear or belt check codes with code reader, may be a crankshaft position sensor. Sensor is very easy repair and L300 isn't going anywhere if that sensor is malfunctioning.
mounted right next to the thermostat , has one wire going to it.
on my 1999 it's on left side under coil, under 2 water pipes(3/4) going in and out of engine.
Should be right behind and to the side of the crank pulley. You will see wiring going to a plug.
Check your crankshaft position sensor and wireing going to it.
That sounds like its going to be either your camshaft position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor. I have a 02 durango with a 4.7 and it uses both. if its starts and all of sudden cuts out its your camshaft sensor a 40 dollar part that's pretty easy to change.
It on the back of the coil packs going into the side of the block.
AnswerBY CHANGEING IT OR SIMPLY GOING FOR A DIAGNOSISThere are several position sensors (crankshaft, camshaft, throttle, EGR). Any one of them would illuminate the "Check Engine" light and the code(s) would lead you to the faulty one.
If the hold light keeps flashing on a Kia Sportage a sensor may be malfunctioning in the light. The flashing light could also indicate that a speed sensor is going bad.
Its right behind the crank pulley on the passenger side of the engine. You will see the wire connector going to it.
Right side rear of engine in top of bell housing, behind cylinder head, two wires going to it.
AnswerAfter you check the obvious, ie module, connectors, look for loose distributor shaft that causes the hall effect sensor in the distributor to not energize. i would check your Crankshaft Position Sensor its located at the top of the bell houseing on the drivers sideView of uninstalled Crankshaft Position Sensor.View of rear of engine showing Crankshaft Position Sensor & harness highlighted in red.Great photo showing location of CPS on bellhousing.NOTE: I found this pic on my harddrive and have no clue where it came from. Had cyrillic writing on larger image & probably came from another Jeep site. I do NOT claim credit for this! Please contact for credit or removal.
The crankshaft position sensor is on the right side of the engine just to the rear of the right hand exhaust manifold, the sensor is attached to the block with two bolts, part of the sensor overhangs the transmission bell housing. Look at the bell housing and start going up, you will see the sensor almost inline with the right exhaust manifold. It has a gromment that overhangs the transmissions bell housing. Use a flashlight from below and you will see it.
This could be caused by either a failing crankshaft position sensor and /or ignition module. It works alright when it is cold, but when it gets hot it quits. If that is the case either will ultimately fail altogether. I actually had that happen on a 1987 Celebrity that I own. First the crankshaft position sensor failed, I had no sooner replaced it when the ignition module died. Both failed in the same day.
I don't know for sure, but I did work on my jeep and was going to change the crankshaft position sensor so I unplugged it from the harness. Battery maintained charge the whole time the sensor was unplugged (a week). Could not get the sensor bolt off so we just plugged it back in and once again battery was dead by the next morning.
