My accent threw a code and it showed it was the crankshaft positioning sensor is that covered under warranty??? 100,000 mile cuz the car has only 62 k on it just replaced the timing belt, radiator hoses, alternator belt, power steering belt, spark plugs and ac belt. Started it up and the light came on and it was the crankshaft positioning sensor.

Only my .02....Judging by the mileage, it's about to go. When it fails you won't be able to start the motor. A common problem is that over time engine heat breaks down the insulation on the 3 wires. You should change it now before it leaves you stranded.

Did you buy it new? If so, you have the 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Bought it used? 60,000 miles on powertrain and bumper-to-bumper which just expired for you. No 100,000 powertrain warranty in that case.

If it is a side effect of something that occurred as you changed the timing belt, I doubt they would cover that anyway if you had the 10/100.

Bought it used but it was Hyundai certified so I still got the 100k warranty on it

I'll just jump in here instead of being OT in someone else's question.
@AUTOSPARK suggested my Crank Position Sensor is on the way out.
Hyundai dealers want $58-75, but I found this:


I can also get a DORMAN tomorrow from AutoZone, for $54.
I like to stay OEM.

Also, where is the darn thing located? I saw a diagram for a 2007 (Mine's an '09) that shows it to the right of the front CAT.

Yes, the CKPS is located to the right of the CAT.

View of the sensor as seen on a real car :

Got it. Thankfully they didn't bury it somewhere. I had a friend with a Kia Rio, same engine. He did THREE of them. From what I have seen, it's about the highest failure-rate part on a Hyundai/Kia.

Any idea if the part I linked really is genuine?

I bought that one. A lot of people said it appeared to be OEM.
