KIA OPTIMA CRANKSHAFT PROBLEM

2004 Kia Optima • 65,000 miles

The car would run real bad, had a test done and replaced the crankshaft sensor, can not turn crank by hand it locks up. It only makes a half a turn. Is the crank broke

Maybe a bad timing chain/belt is causing the problem. Further testing would have to be done to confirm.
