Exclamation crankshaft position sensor

ok ive searched all over the internet and cant find any diagrams or pics of where the crankshaft position sensor is.. so i joined this forum

so i just got this 2003 kia rio cinco wagon from a friend of mine..
i know you guys like to know all the info (as read in all the post ive seen so far) but i didnt know how to add it to my profile so ill add it to this post..

2003 kia rio cinco wagon
1.6L
standard
57,500 miles
all scheduled maintenance
cluch was replaced
i live in florida
not sure what else you need as far as info.. but here's what happened

was driving back from the store, sitting at a red light.. out of nowhere it just dies.. no noises, clanks , bangs etc. just dies.. so i push it of the side of the road and try to start it.. i hear the engine turning but it didnt sound like it was getting spark or fuel.. so i pushed it home and checked it out.. i hear the fuel pump turn on, my battery is charged and contacts are good.. fuses are too. so a friend brings over his scan tool and says its crankshaft sensor.. so i just ordered one, should be here friday.. im just wondering where it is located, i cant find a haynes manual for it.. can anyone tell me where it is or take a pic or something..

i think ive narrowed it down to 1 of 2 wires near the oil filter..am i correct?

also does this sound like a crankshaft sensor to you?

seem like everyone lays claim to the timing belt.. which i will be replacing soon

thanks for any help

Welcome to the forum.

Most often the crank or camshaft sensor codes point towards a slipped timing belt.

I'd start by checking the timing belt, and if it's gone, you'll have considerable engine damage.

I'm not that familiar with this model, but most often the crank sensor is on the bell-housing of the gearbox sensing off the flywheel.

Try the KiaTech web site for loads of info - see my sig for the link.

For service info register (free) with KiaTechInfo and click on 'Shop' on the left, and for elect schematics click on 'ETM'.

Quality and not quantity counts.

The crankshaft position sensor is located at the top of the bell housing, close to the engine. There is a 10mm bolt holding it in place.

update: i replaced the crank sensor and it still wont start.. pulled off the upper timing cover and the belt looks fine.. although it is loose, about a 1/2in loose.. so its not looking good, im gonna take it up to kia and have them look at it. i dont have access to all the tools i need to do the job, nor the time.. i post an update when i find out more

there might be one less kia on the road!

The crankshaft position sensor 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. Good luck on that mate. We don't want to lose a kia on the streets.
