Where is the crankshaft position sensor on a 2003 Kia Sorento. It dies or almost dies. Sometimes it restarts and sometime it takes about 10 minutes before it will. The check engine light is on and the only code that makes any since is for the CP Sensor

CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR
The crankshaft position sensor is a Hall-effect sensor that senses the crank angle (piston position) of each cylinder and converts it into a pulse signal. Based on the input signal, the ECU computes the engine speed and controls the fuel injection timing and ignition timing.
