Kia Sorento LX: my 2006 kia sorento wont start. Fuel pressure

Resolved Question:

my 2006 kia sorento won't start. Fuel pressure is within factory specs. New battery, spark plugs and wires. Ran computer diagnostics and found a cam shaft position sensor fault code. Can erase code and it will start eventually. Starts better in cold weather. What do you think?

Don't remember
Expert:  Cardoctor69 replied 5 years ago.
Can you get the code?Any autozone,advanced auto ,aamco or meineke will scan it for free .This can be a timing issue or crank sensor issue.

I am a mechanic and can scan it which I already have and that is how I came up with a cam position sensor fault code. I just don't remember the number and didn't right the number down before erasing the fault code. My mistake.
Expert:  Cardoctor69 replied 5 years ago.
Ok these cam sensor codes are usually caused by timing issues was this checked.Also can you scan it again to get the code or its erased already ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I don't have the means to check the timing. All I have is a code scan reader and data list. Yes the code is erased and it is starting now, so I won't be able to get the code yet until all it does is start cranking but won't start. This problem has been happening for a while now. Sorry I didn't write the code down, I guess I am not much help. I just didn't know what else it could be.

Ok most common is the crank we sensor . If this happens again get the code and I bet it's the crank sensor that's stored sometimes it gives the cam sensor code when it's really a crank sensor issue seen it before . These would be the next steps. Crank sensors failing on these vehicles are very common to cause your issue . Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
