Where is the crank sensor pls --2001 Kia Sportage also what voltage should I get from TPS when disconnected with key ON. -- many thanks. Tim.

TPS voltage is Close to 0 volts, normally the minimum, and 5 volts is typically the maximum. As an example, when a car's computer reads 2.5 volts from the TPS, it may mean the throttle is opened by 50% (your foot is pushing the pedal half-way down), and yes has a cam sensor its in between the cams behind the cam cover.

Timming on my kia sportage 2001 is still out after the cam pulleys have been linned up, and crank pulley what now?

best thing to do, is try it again. Sometimes when the slack is pulled out of the timing belt, it will be off by a tooth.

Timming belt markings will get you all the information you need when working on a kia 2nd only to a chiltons or haynes manual.

For register (its free) then select the information for your car make model engine. Then either do a search for timing belt or pick from proper items in cloumn to the left.
