Where is the camshaft position sensor on a 2001 Kia Rio?
It is on top drivers side just right of the exhaust manifold. It has one bolt and a cannon plug that has a clip that has to be removed before you can take it off
It is located under the Upper Timing Belt Cover on the passenger side of the of the engine. You will see a wire running through the upper cover, this leads to the Camshaft Position Sensor. Another wire runs through the lower cover and this leads to the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Just remove the upper cover and with a flashlight you will see it bolted (2 bolts) next to the Camshaft Pulley.
The cam shaft position sensor is located right behind the exhost cam by the fire wall. It is held by two 10 mm bolts, one on each side of the sensor. If you got the hood up and looking at the engine the cam that is on the right hand is the exhost cam. To get to the CPS you have to remove the intake and cam top cover.
