If the ECM detects an error with the crankshaft position sensor it will give a P0335 OBDII code.

If you get a P0335 Crankshaft Position Sensor error code on a Kia, replacing the sensor is usually the first step.
I recently had a 2006 Kia Spectra that had start problems and would bog down when the gas was pressed.
My first thought was the timing belt had jumped a bit, throwing off the timing.
After using an OBDII scan tool, it pulled the code P0335.
After replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor, the problem cleared.
