I know P0018 is the crankshaft position sensor, but I do not know where it is located.
Do you

I was told the crankshaft sensor was behind the timing belt cover I am confused.
Also, what would the part number be?

Hello again.

No, it is not behind the timing belt. I have attached another picture of its location. The Kia factory part number is #393103C410. If not buying from the dealership you can have that part number cross-referenced at your local auto parts store to save a little money. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.

Is the crankshaft position in the valve cover? On the right side or left? I still do not see where it is at.

Hello again.

It is mounted on the left rear of the engine. I have attached the picture after enlarging it a bit. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.

I have looked everywhere I cannot find the sensor. I jack the van up and looked both left and right of rear of the engine. The picture you sent me does not look like anything that I am looking at when you say left rear of the engine are we facing the front of the van or is our back to the front what is it near? I am so confused with all the conflicting answers I am getting.

None of them are helpful.

The sensor looks like is is under the intake manifold. Can you send us image of what you are looking at so we can be on the same page?
