Here's what I've found about this P1336 code: P1336
Crankshaft sensor is out of sync with camshaft
you get this code, the first thing to check is your distributor
especially if you have an imported vehicle. Look for signs
of oil in the distributor which can contaminate the signals
being monitored by the ECM (engine computer). Check also
the wiring leading to the distributor and see if the wires
are properly insulated away from hot exhaust which could
burn the wires. Check also on the crank sensor location
whether it is located in the front of the engine or at
the flywheel at the rear of the engine. The same can be
done for the cam sensor.
engines with distributor, the cam sensor is usually located
in the distributor and it will give you a lot of grief
if not properly align and synchronize with the crank sensor.
On some applications (like Ford), an alignment tool is
required which is can be bought from your local parts
store (cost about $31). If you install the distributor
without proper timing, it will still run but the mileage
will suffer and the above code showing up. Your local trusted mechanic or Ford Dealer should be able to resolve this for you (if you can't) without too much trouble.
CKP Sensor System Variation Not Learned
Set the parking brake and block the drive wheels for safety.Verify the hood is closed.Read the trouble codes. If a code is set, refer to that code.Start the engine. Allow engine temperature to reach at least 158?F (70?C). Then key off.Select Crankshaft Position Variation Learn procedure on Scan Tool & start the vehicle.Apply the brake pedal firmly and verify the selector is in Park.Increase accelerator pedal position until fuel cutoff is reached at the test rpm (e.g., 5150). Quickly release the accelerator pedal after fuel cutoff is reached. The CKP system variation compensating values are learned when the engine speed (rpm) decreases back to idle speed and the procedure terminates.Read the trouble codes and recheck for DTC P1336.If DTC P1336 runs and passes, the CKP system variation "learn" procedure is complete. If not, look for other codes. If no codes are set, repeat the test procedure.
I had a similar problem @105k. I had changed the fuel filter but it was still sending all kinds of codes that were related to 2 problems. Long story short, the main problem was a bad trigger assembly in the distributor (rough running) and the other was a loose engine to body ground (engine code issue). Good luck, this worked for me, now 171k.
This make/model has a chronic problem with EGR clogging. If you have a dashboard indicator showing "check engine" most likely it is a trouble code indicating and EGR (exhaust gas recirculator) valve problem. Symptoms are rough idle, and surging and stalls.
What happens is sediments from the exaust manifold get sucked up into the valve when it opens, then stick in the valve and keep it from closing. When the valve is open when it should be closed, the engine runs very rough.
I removed my egr and then dislodged the sediment (pea-sized debris) and then re-installed the valve. Three days later, the same "check engine" and same rough idle. I must have did this at least three or four more times.
What I found that gave me a permanent solution was an aftermarket filter gasket that keeps debris from clogging. I don't remember the name of the product, but a search for "EGR filter gasket" may lead you to the product.
Install the gasket between the EGR and the exhaust manifold and you should be good to go. Note: on 1995 and newer models, disconnecting the EGR from the wiring harness (common on R&R) may require the computer to be reprogramed.
