on a 2004 Kia Sorento, will a bad crank position sensor prompt a cyl #5 misfire (P0305) ? If so does the sensor isolate which cylinder is reading a misfire or is it a random signal ?
I'm told the crank sensor will prompt a misfire code on a 2004 Kia Sorento. Does the crank sensor sense that particular cyl (#5) with the problem ? I have new plugs and wires on this and have spark at cyl #5 by putting another plug in the wire boot and can watch the spark.
An OBDII scan can detect a misfire on any given cylinder. The scan is also capable of detecting (actually reading what the ECU has stored as a code thrown by the OBD is a better way to put it) a bad crankshaft sensor. BUT that does NOT necessarily mean that is what is causing the misfire...possible, but not certain
