View Full Version : Still Got issues...

hey everyone. ok its been 8 weeks since the ses light came on for the crankshaft position sensor. replaced it one and the harmonic balancer. after the fix it still gave me issues. so i go back in since the sensor is under warrenty. get a new sensor, put it on and put on 150 miles today, and yup she is still doin it. now both times i had replaced the 21x sensor(behind harmonic balancer). error code is....P0336. so the 21x sensor is ruled out. i am going to replace the 7x sensor because i havent done this yet. but i only have the issues under 3 thousand rpm. i was told the 7x measures above like 3 or 4 thousand, so i dont really think this would be the issue, but believe it or not, i could be wrong. do any of u think that this sensor could be the issue? well its 17.99 so why not give it a try. o btw, the car only acts up if it is at FULL running temp and it sits idling for like 5 to10 mins. other then that no issues. and if it is acting up and i start driving, the issue goes away when im driving above 55. ive been battling this one for a while now and its starting to get on my nerves. i have been told it can be wires, the ignition switch, a ground, even the pcm. so idk. and i did check the connections and they are all in good shape. i guess this is what i get at 200.000 miles lol. things could be worse tho. thanks for the input!

need more info because it could be a misaligned crankshaft or could be over tightened bolts or not tight enough

over tightened bolts?

the code the sensor giving u could be a mechanical issue or electrical issue. i also u might have taken apart some thing apart on the motor. find out what the code means

code means crankshaft position sensor malfunction, nothing to do w bolts or anything

check the alignment of the crankshaft and if it is not the problem then it is an electrical issue

what is your idle speed or does the engine shake really bad

no it idles fine until i get it to running temp and let it sit for like ten minutes. im going to change the other senser to see if that does anything
