'02 Kia Sportage 2.0 2 wheel drive, Needs a Crak Shaff Sensor Sign In

Can anyone tell me or/and send a picture showing where bouts the crank shaff sensor is located on my '02 Kia Sportage. I know it is on the driver side at the back where the motor and transmission joins. But there are a lot of plugs there and do not see a single plug in wire, just pig tails oy plugs......

Oh my! It don't look exactly like that under my sportage.... When i slide up under there I see the trans oil plug and pan, rite across from that i have the universal joint thingy there then it looks like the sensor is there but when i follow it to the end it is all 2 gether in a pig tail with more than 1 snap in plug. I was taken for a $1875.89 ride from the garage and each time it was always something different that was wrong with it. My brother checked the engine soon codes and that was the only thing showing up that was bad. I am a female and I changed all my sensors myself with the help on here. Now just get the crankshaft sensor changed....

You may have a different transmission but the sensor is in the area.

Do you have a picture showing where the crankshaft senor is with a 2.0l SOHC Fuel Injection motor?

Sounds like you just need to let someone else look at the car. That picture came directly from the service manual.

The mechanic just left and he said theres a lot of crap that has to be taken off to get to it, and it would cost around $300.00 give or take...

Does the sensor that bolts in place, bolt to the transmission?

It bolts to the bellhousing at about the 11 O'clock position right close to the block so it can read off the flywheel.

Re: '02 Kia Sportage 2.0 2 wheel drive, Needs a Crak Shaff Sensor Sign In

mines an auto and it don't have a bellhousing, i believe a straight gear has that. I believe I found it. The part that bolts in is right behind my transmission dip stick, and it takes a 10 mm to get that bolt off. Had to take off my front driver side tire, and pull the mud shield, to get to it. It is a cramp up space to work with and it will take me a while to get it off. Then i just have to find where it plugs into.

This job is obviously beyond your ability and understanding so I suggest you have it repaired at a reputable shop.

No I understood what you where saying, but the picture is not the way it looks under my sportage. I ended up calling The mechanics at the Kia dealership and they walk me thru it.
