1. Coincidence. Neither has anything to do with the other.
2. Yes, this is normal. I've seen it numerous times. For whatever
reason, this is how the PCM stores some of the codes-- once for pending,
and then again for confirmed.
3. Nope. I'm guessing they misspoke or don't really have any idea what
4. Typically, you'll need to remove the timing belt to do the job. If
you're comfortable with replacing the timing belt on this engine, then
it'll be okay. The timing belt is a bit tricky to get everything right,
so I tend to recommend this as a DIY job only to those that are very
familiar with timing belt work.
5. The timing belt on the 2.4 has a short lifespan-- I've even replaced
some due to failure within the 4 year/60k maintenance window. If you're
past halfway on your current interval (either by time or mileage), replace
the timing and balance belts while you're replacing the crank sensor.
If you're not replacing the timing or balance belt, you can sneak the
wiring behind the timing belt if you remove the terminals from the
connector. And, of course, you'll need to do this with the new connector.
You'll need a small pick or terminal release tool to do this. Keep in
mind that you'll need to get the wires back in the same position in the
connector if you choose to do this.
6. The location photos should be in the ETM section, but I cannot find
any link there. In this case, I went to the newest car in the EF Sonata
group, since it has the same transmission. Once you're in the 2005 Sonata
schematic of choice, click on the blue connector number for the component
you wish to see. Another window will pop up for the connector view. In
this new window, click on the "component" link to see a picture of the
The input speed sensor is below the bracket holding the shift cable in
place. It's labeled "pulse generator A" in the schematic.
