Six cylinder two wheel drive automatic 93,000 miles.

Where is the crankshaft sensor located on this car? I cannot find it. Do I need to remove the intake? I see wires going under the intake but cannot tell what they are for.

Do you
have the same problem?

The crankshaft sensor is located at the front of the engine down at the timing belt pulley. You will need to remove the timing belt cover. here is a diagram to help you see what I am talking about. The six.

Here is a guide that can give you more information on the job:

I looked for about an hour last night in this area and could not find it. Is it under something else or hidden? I have the new sensor and know what it looks like, but cannot see it on the car. I went to the Hyundai dealership and asked a mechanic. The crankshaft sensor is above the starter on the side of the block. A bit hard to get to, but I changed it and car is running again.

The crankshaft sensor is in the side of the block, behind the exhaust manifold.

My 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe will not start. I already installed a new fuel pump and still same. I was thinking may be the crankshaft sensor but I do not know where it is. How can I find it?

You do not change parts and hope that it works. It is going to be costly and a waste of time and money unless you are extremely lucky.

You need to start with diagnostics to find out what is missing causing the non starting.

My SUV suddenly would not shift into second gear going down the highway. I babied it home and noticed also that placing it in reverse the engine immediately quit. Idle the car and it is fine. Placing it in drive it jumps. So I took out my computer check tool and it said the crankshaft sensor was bad.

So I guess I need to know where this is located on the engine? Thanks, Mark

I doubt it is your crank sensor, but here is location in picture. If it still does it have a transmission professional check it. It may be a governor or in need of transmission rebuild.

Reason I said the sensor is my tester gave me the p003 and said crankshaft position sensor. Somebody told me that I would have to remove the timing belt cover and crankshaft pulley. You are showing the sensor at the top of the engine?
