SOURCE: i need instructions on how to change a crankshaft

It's behind the harmonnic balance. You WILL need a special puller set for this job. A normal blancer puller will NOT work. Once you get the balance off it is bolted to the engine. I'm not sure where one would find the puller set from besides a tool guy. Some of the auto parts stores have special tools they will loan out. May want to try them. I would imagine that if you need to purchace the tool then it may be cheaper to pay someone to do it. I know they are expecive through the big tool companies. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: for pontiac grand prix what does trouble code

Appears to be the code for the camshaft position sensor, or cam sensor circuit. Around $35-45.00 for the part at an auto parts store. Have the part replaced. And take it from there. Might be a good thing to replace the spark plugs and wires too.

po330 is a bad knock sensor, the sensor will cause, sluggish engine, poor acceleration, poor fuel economy. the signal is sent to pcm and the timing is retarded to compensate for the severe detonition. on 4 cylinder models, the knock sensor is located on the rear firewall side of the engine block, below exhaust manifold.on v6 models , the sensor is located on the front radiator side of engine block above the oil filter.

Check Engine Light / Crankshaft Sensor

I had a similar thing happen with my cam position sensor. I replaced it, ran ok for a couple of days, threw and another CPS code. Replaced it a second time and it has been fine since. Which is why the garage probably wants to get an oem part. It could also be your pcm considering you are having multiple electrical problems. If you are having the dealership do the work, considering the age of the car, relative value of it, and the ridiculous price they charge I would cut my losses and trade it in. If you are handy and willing to put in the time and work scour the grand am forums and you may find a solution.

I changed the harmonnic ballancer and the sensor and got code p0336 didnt have this code untill I had to change harmonic.

P0336 Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance.

Potential causes of a P0336 code include:

  • Bad crank sensor
  • Broken reluctor ring (missing teeth, debris lodged in ring)
  • Reluctor ring dislodged/stripped from it's stationary location
  • Wiring harness chafing causing short
  • Wiring open in CKP circuit, good-day ! CKP=crankshaft position sensor. The Crankshaft position sensor also known as the crank position sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning. This information is used by the Electronic Control Module(ECM) to control ignition and fuel injection. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. good-day !

My 1999 gmc yukon wont start code say p0336 just rotates


p0336 means CKP sensor performance error. Replace the crankshaft position sensor. If that doesn't fix the issue there is a number of GM factory service bulletins that point at a manufacturing problem with Yukon engine. Find the appropriate service bulletin for your engine in this page.

2000 sunfire has p0336, p0340, p0130, where to

p0130 is an oxygen sensor code.
p0340 is your camshaft position sensor code
p0336 is your crankshaft position sensor code

as far as the p0130 code those usually are what i call neglected sensors that do not get replaced when they should be. this sensor is expensive but worth the money as it will help on fuel mileage.

on to the camshaft position sensor, i would start here with this. replace that sensor and when you are replacing it, inspect the sensor and make sure the electrical wires going into it are in good shape. after replacing those 2 sensors, go to a parts store who can erase your codes to turn the light off and then let us know if it comes back on and then we will go from there on the repair.
