I posted previously about this on 8/4/2016, subject: "Check Engine light
after starter replacement".
But, I decided to start a new thread about replacing the crankshaft sensor.
Here is what I found out before:
“I took it to AutoZone and the test print-out said:
Replace Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP)
Error Code: P0335 Crankshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction.
Code P0335 indicates a fault in the Crankshaft Position Sensor "A"
electrical circuit for a predetermined period of time.”
Now, I am trying to get an idea of how hard it is to replace the CPS on this
particular vehicle. My vehicle is a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD 3.5L V-6
I finally found some photos online to show where the CPS is on my vehicle,
and I looked at the vehicle today to confirm it. It looks like for this
vehicle the CPS is located inside the timing cover. And, I think, but I am
not sure, that taking the timing cover off in this vehicle is a fairly big
job. At least, when I watch videos for timing belt replacement on this
vehicle, it shows a big job just trying to get to the timing belt.
Here is what I found as far as locating the CPS on my vehicle.
One end of the CPS cable/part is near the top of the engine shown here:
The other end, with the actual sensor, is under/inside the timing belt
cover, shown here:
That could mean that it will be an expensive job to get the CPS replaced.
What I am wondering is if anyone knows what is involved in replacing the CPS
on this particular vehicle year, make, and model. And/or, is there a way to
just remove the timing belt cover fairly easily to get to the actual CPS
sensor inside, without having to remove a bunch of other stuff (power
steering, motor mount, remove the right front wheel, etc) which is done
during a timing belt replacement.
