A crankshaft position sensor on a Kia regulates the engine timing along with the plugs getting spark.

The sensor tells the onboard computer (ECM) the crank position which is necessary for timing.

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

Summary
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.
