This is a fairly easy repair.It does not require any technical work at all.It is a job that should take a mechanically inclined person about two hours to accomplish in their garage of their house.Any other questions get back to me....Thx..

The crankshaft position sensor is located between the timing belt pulleys on the left(passenger) side of the engine and has a plug near the top left. Having done this repair on a 2003 sedona, it is NOT an easy fix. Recommend you have the timing belt, water pump and sensor changed all at the same time since this is so labor intensive. Take it to a shop unless you are a really good mechanic. Costs about $600-$700.

Where is the crankshaft position/crank angle sensor located on a 2005 kia sedona


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.

Operation

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

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the bolt that retains the sensor in place.
  4. Remove the sensor from its mounting. To install:
    1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
    2. Clearance between the sensor and the sensor wheel should be 0.020-0.059 inch. 2002-2005
      1. Properly connect the scan tool.
      2. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
      3. Be sure the idle position switch is ON.
      4. Specifications are as follows:

        Temperature - 4°F, test specification 1500-1700 RPM Temperature 32°F, test specification 1350-1550 RPM Temperature 68°F, test specification 1200-1400 RPMTemperature 104°F, test specification 1000-1200 RPM Temperature 176°F, test specification 650-850 RPM

2005 Kia Sedona, Trouble Code P0320. Everything I read online tells me its a Crankshaft Sensor. I called Kia and then sent me to www.kiatechinfo.com were it says that the code is an Ignition System Failure...


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.

I went to have an emissions test and I failed.


code P0320 stored.
Tests/Procedures:
1. Check if the oil pump drive housing has rotated on the hold down clamp. If it has, replace the oil pump drive gear and housing.

2. Scope the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor.

3. Scope the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor.

Potential Causes: Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP)
Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP)
Distributor Sync

Only a qulified mechanic will be able to tell you the cost once he eliminates each possibility.
