stangTcode T: i had CODE PO340 Crank Angle Position Sensor (Fault )
1/ i would cut the wires & either fish thru the new connection from other
side of motor where it connects into OR
2/ cut wires ample above old & new sensor & use 2 BLUE female & male crimp
terminals either into existing old wire connector or new wire if could
fish it thru
then all done
deepsquat600: I would have just spliced the wire ..cut it and check for continuity up to
the plug at the top of engine ..splice and seal it up
Brian Geffre: My mechanic tried to replace the sensor and the plate that runs on the
shaft. When he started the engine, it destroyed the plate. They tried a
second one and it did the same thing. Is there something that would go out
of position on the crankshaft that would just show up. They told me that
the bearing are worn out and allow the shaft to shift about 1/8 inch. Does
1trucavalier: Updated! I just did a 2005 2. 4 liter Hyundai Sonata YOU DO NOT HAVE TO
REMOVE THE TIMING BELT. First take the sensor off remove to 10 millimeter
screws, fish the sensor up toward the timing belt pulley just behind the
power steering pulley, pull the sheath back on the wire, Pull the sensor
wires between the back of the timing belt and on top of the pulley, the
pulley will roll and the sensor will come right out. Timing will not be
changed at all because nothing was removed. Wallahhh do it yourself!
Kida001: Can just the wire go bad? I had my sensor replaced once already. I could
replace the sensor again but the wire is frayed on the top end. Hyundai is
giving me a hard time about fixing it. I have an 02 Sonata.
LearningZone: Nice video. For me crankshaft position sensor lasts more than 500K. There
is no such life time for CPK sensor replacement. Regards,
Chris Hauschild: Thanks for the video. Regards Chris
al coss: thankyou for share. one question? can we cut that two wires (red/black)
and put together with splite?
Lukas Pence: Bravo! Thanks for this video!
2085batman: You rock man having this problem right now
shake master: can you please tell me if that big bolt in the middle is left handed or
right handed to replace the plate its self... and is it possable to splice
the wire to replace that damn sensor !
DwansAve .: Great video! Much help. Im about to attrmpt this job on my 08

Stephen Campbell: Excellent information video.
Just had to get mine done. Maybe next time I will do it myself. Why
Hyundai did not make the sensor plug and play I have no idea.

smazz104: good vid - good job explaining.
wikispeedia: I was thinking of that route. Just cut, solder and put on some heat shrink
tubing. Thanks for posting!
baldbollocks: Your a good man brother ! thanks a million ! !
Richard Hetrick: Thanks for the bid but it is true that you left a few steps out. Had to
removed two pullys, the alt. belt and the ps/ac belt. I also had to loosen
the timing belt to get the old sensor out and the new one in but I was
careful to retention the belt in the exact same notches it was in when I
started and the car runs fine. The only problem I've encountered is a
mysterious oil leak that I'm about to have track down. Makes no sense since
I didn't have to undo anything oil related.
Lomy50: please help, my 03 hyundai santa fe timing belt broke while i was driving
about 15mph in a subdivision and I changed the timing belt by aligning the
marks on all gears then the engine starts quickly and shaking a lot and i
did took out the timing and put back again thinking i missed the gear and
better this time but it is rough, one thing I couldn't figure out is where
is the oil balance shaft plug on the left side of the block ?? couldn't
find it please help me as soon as possible
gj90666: i hope someone can help me out, so i replace this crankshaft position
sensor (on a 2.4) along with all the belt. but now when i try to start her
up she cranks but wont turned over, can anyone help me out here?
Ralph Turner: Nice video. Very helpful
cubmancan: The car may cut off unexpectedly and crank back up, this may get more
frequent until it just won't run at all. It may run rough, be hard to
start, or not start up at all. Sometimes mimicks a fuel problem. This is
very common for vehicles between 100Kand 160K miles. The things just go
bad, could also be age- 10 years, estimated. Other problems may also cause
similar symptoms. There is an electronics diagnosis for it- check with
Autozone, etc for code info. Good luck, hope it helps.
John E Harshman: THANKS YOU GOT ME STARTED I RE ROUTED THE WIRE CHECK IT OUT.
Khamis Zulkifly: very good for biginer to learn DIY..thanks bro..
brianwolfe86: Thanks so much for posting this! I had my CKPS replaced 2.5 years ago and
they charged me $325 parts and labor (which turned out to be a deal,
apparently). I'm now having the same problem with the new CKPS 40,000 miles
later...I just got a quote today of $400 to replace it, but after seeing
your video I'm thinking I may just do this myself. I'm waiting on the edge
of my seat for your replacement video. Thanks again!
Denia Hernandez: thank you so much! it helpme a lot to know more about my car :)
leejameswhitehouse: Many thanks for this video, might have to tackle this job shortly should it
be the problem!
Boomr616: Thanks, same thing with my Sedona
cubmancan: @fdeldredge I don't really know if that would work okay or not. I'm
guessing there may be a problem caused by the cutting and splicing. It
might make the project much easier if it could be done without a problem.
You likely need to ask an automotive electrical expert.
Corn Stocks: Thank you for th great video man! Saved me hundreds!
cubmancan: Just trying to be helpful. Left some common stuff out for brevity, and did
state that a person needs mechanical ability before taking on the task, I
think. Common sense, you have to remove belts, etc. I think I changed the
CPS without taking the timing belt off- but it was tight. Overall, I hope
the video is helpful.
lookafterlove: Hey Cubmancan, Im doing this same job right now and have a question about
the timing gear on the crankshaft. mine is one peace with the gear attached
to the harmonic balancer but urs is not? confused.
Roger St. Hilaire: Thanks the video was helpful keep up the good work will be doing my project
soon on a Sonata 2.0L G4JP...
360treflipskater360: this is awsome! thank you so much. ive got to replace the timing belt and
the sensor on my girlfriends 2002 hyundai santa fe and this video just
helped me out so much!
Ralph Turner: Do you know if there is a cam sensor for thr 2001 accent 4cyl. DOHC 1.6 L
Mary Beattie: Timming belt replaced on my 2005 2.4 santa fe cost £659, inc parts. next
day went for a run got about 4mls car cut out. called out AA auto .took
about 35mins, mechanic connected to commputer came up with crankshaft
sensor fault. tried to start but just turned over,said it could be dirt on
sensor short on wire or faulty sensor. was about to trailer me home after
checking for faults. turned key car started. Got home just as it cut out.
next day at garage new sensor fitted. Cost £256. 14/9/03 UK
WAYIISHY: about to go do it now thank you !! ill let you know how it goes.
HalfCupOfJoe: Whats not mentioned is that timing belt removal is also required to remove
this sensor and it's unnecessarily long harness, which in turn means
re-timing the engine and its corresponding balance shaft(the sprocket on
the right in this video) is absolutely necessary, and if re-timing is not
done 100% properly, you can end up bending valves and/or the balance shafts
out of phase which can make the engine sound "buzzy" or "raspy" when
revved. And don't forget the smaller balance belt behind the re
alfredo6495: awsome help thank you so much !!!!!........ SAVED ME SOME MONEY....BY THE
WAY ALL THE WAY FROM EL SALVADOR........
chanthyvang: thanks alot u r the best.
Ahmed Alsaadi: thanks for the video i have Kia optima 2006 2.4L 4C same engine desain. my
engine shack hard and the car stalled while drive is that symptoms of bad
timing belt and CSPS ?
Chris Miller: Thanks for the quick reply! I have an OBDII scanner and the Torque app on
my phone. There are no codes being thrown, and I was unable to find
anything out of the ordinary. The symptoms you describe are pretty much
exactly what I'm experiencing. I was starting to think the engine was
either starving of fuel (Pump, Filter, Pressure Regulator), or air (clogged
Cat. Conv.?) My S.F. has 130,000 miles. This problem only started after the
valve cover gasket oil leak, which probably saturated the CPS.
magilla2567: Thanks a lot for a great vid.
fdeldredge: Would there be any issue with cutting and splicing the wire thus saving two
hours of work? Ref: (3:00)
jarrell gines: did you drop the engine because i noticed the red jack stand under it
lawnside82: keeping them cams still were a pain untill i found a little trick use 2
17mm wrenches hold both cams at there timing mark with some muscle because
you will be fighting against the spring tension, then just slide in between
the teeth one of those 10mm timing cover bolts with the built in washer..
the washer will wedgie between the gears and hold them still.. worked just
fine for me!
cupcake1556: Thanks so much I have the same issue and the vehicle is at pepboys for
$545.00. Uncanny but they said that it will take an additional 2 hours
because thay realized it was more difficult. We also had a timing belt
previously replaced. Great advice to replace it with the timing belt. Where
is the replacement video?
jahanzebakhter1: This may not be the best approach what I am suggesting, but I am thinking
since the wire is already there, from the original CKP, then instead of
removing the other components, to try to fit and route the wire along the
recommended path, why not just cut the wires at the ckp and attach the two
wires to the new CKP. Ofcourse it will mean cutting the wire from the new
CKP as well. Provided that the original wire is ok,which I think can be
checked with a multimeter. Labor can be saved.
Mark Regiec: Thank you for posting this very informational video. - While the job itself
may take some time & patience,, it doesn't seem too difficult for someone
who has some mechanical skills.
