Can someone tell me where I can locate the Crankshaft position sensor? I think I found but want to make sure its the right one. First off I have the 2.0 engine... On the right side of engine below the air filter, near the transmission area, I found a sensor. (1 bolt 10MM socket). does this sound lke the right one?

I pulled it out and shined my flashlight in the little hole. I looks like I see a gear with teeth in there.

hhmm... I might have the wrong one than. Is it on the back side of the engine? like on the left side down below the timing belt area?

this one I found and took out was on the transmission case. easily acessable. Will I have to remove any other parts to get to this sensor?

Ill just buy a haynes repair manual..
I'm not seeing one for the Tiburon, but the Elantra 2.0 4 cyl should also work right?

Thanks

The crank position sensor and oil pressure switch sit next to each other... stading there looking at engine, see the exhaust manifold and catalyst.. in that open space to right of exhaust (driver side) and transmission there, and 2 items with wires attached.. The crank sensor is held to block wiith a 10mm headed bolt, has pig tail with 2 or 3 wire connector, the oil pressure switch has the round rubber boot over top with single wire.

ok, yeah I found it..... Listen to this ****.. not sure what It means, Maybe I'll need a new motor?? Guy from the garage called me up and said I had no compression at all? someone please tell me what this means? Broken piston maybe? Will I have to buy a new motor? I still owe money on this car. This is just unreal. So lost. Don't know what to do.

Broken timing belt ?? Mashed valves that now leak ?


Verify timing belt in corrrect time ?

Cylinder leak down test

Timing belt not broken. Mechanic said he pulled the valve cover off and said the valves look like good. Not sure what a cylinder leak down test is..
Im thinking tow it back to my house in my garage.. and start the tear down process and yanking the motor out.

Nothing to really see under the valve cover.

Your tech not know what a cylinder leak down test is.... find a new tech..

Leak down is a percentage test of how much pressure is lost to how much is put in.. there is a guage set used, it is used with shop air, zero'ed, then installed to hose already installed to plug threads, engine set to TDC for cylinder tested, and air introduced and leak percent shown on gauge.. from there we look at radiator for bubbles (head gasket fault),, listen to exhaust pipe (valve fault),, intake throttle plate (valve fault), oil cap/crankcase (rings fault).

Compression pressure being lost somewhere..



The EEPV309A Cylinder Leakage Tester gauges the amount of leakage in an engine cylinder, and can help pinpoint the source.

Use the Cylinder Leakage Tester by itself or in conjunction with a compression gauge to determine mechanical condition of the engine's cylinders.
