crankshaft position sensor location?
my kia often will crank but not fire if i keep trying it will eventually fire. I got a code once for crankshaft position sensor. I took it to a shop they had it not start once and mentioned the same code but wanted to have it happen again with tools hooked up to it. They had the car for almost a week and it never failed to start. in the three round trips ive driven it after that i think it started right up 2 times no start but start shortly after 3 times and this afternoon I kept trying for like 10 minutes until it finally fired.
I think I want to buy the crankshaft position sensor and replace it myself since it seems fairly cheap. Can anyone help me locate this, do I need any special tools, do I need to remove anything to get to it?
