Crankshaft Sensor?


Asked by Jun 17, 2013 at 07:27 PM about the 2004 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My mechanic wants to charge me $945 to replace the crankshaft sensor in my 2004
Hyundai Sonata. This seems like way to much to me. The part is $55.99 at Autozone,
and others have told me it is an easy job. Anyone have any experience with this?

It is a bit of a pain to do, but not 900 bucks worth. Call around, get prices if you are sure that is indeed your problem.

your mechanic does not want the job.You want him to do it you pay his price. Look around lower prices available for a heck of a job.

It's not that bad...just need some experience with takin' stuff apart----and still bein' able to put it together again~ most wrenchers can keep the bolts in their pocket and not lose them~

what's it like one bolt and one electrical connection? can do that with one hand behind my back while chompin' down a charleston chew...this one should be gratis by your kind automotive repair guy~

okay, I'm wrong two bolts and route the wire to the connector....lordy, that'd take all my SNACK time up~ utm_source=google&utm_medium=ff&utm_content=YN&utm_campaign=P artsGeek+Google+Base&utm_term=1999- 2005+Hyundai+Sonata+Crank+Position+Sensor+Standard+Motor+Produ cts+99- 05+Hyundai+Crank+Position+Sensor+2003&gclid=CNCc8oulx7sCFY47M godn2IAiA

invest in a 10mm ratchet...and do it yourself...might get your hands dirty...and you can find the end of the connector easy enough...just look at the old'll have to squeeze the connector to release it~ good can do this~

how do I replace the crankshaft sensor on my 2002 Hyundai santa fe

If its the 4 cyl then 945.00 is a bargain esp if he is gonna replace the waterpump, the 3 roller bearings, the belt tensioner, oil pump pulley, seals lower and main timing belt too!. This job is an expert level job and will take 8 hours or more for first timer. Then you hope u didn't screw up the timing and blow your engine.

I have a 04 Hyundai Sonata that needed a crank position sensor changed. I went online to bought the part for dirt cheap brought the car and the part to my mechanic he put the part in it cost me $91 and took all of maybe 45 minutes.
