Engine hesitating & stuttering very badly, it's barely driveable. code p1336

Engine hesitating & stuttering very badly, it's barely driveable. Truck was fine, gased up last night....was near empty...this morning stuttering, gagging, began. could it be clogged fuel filter, bad gas, water in fuel? After 5 minutes of running like this, it had gotten me to work, now engine light is on code shows p1336.....could it be a false trigger if fuel or junk from the bottom of the tank was pulled into the line? Thanks!!

P1336--CKP or CMP Input Signal to PCM Concerns

Check Crank & Cam Sensors for their installation & wire

After that a repair shop will be needed

The code is your symptoms to a Tee

    Thanks Peter, I was hoping fuel, but it has 205k on it so cam sensors haven't been done yet. I was guessing same, but wanted to be sure.thanks Chris

    Always resolve code related issues first,then continue on if necessary Codes don't mean a sensor failed necessarily

    True, that's why I was thinking possibly junk in fuel at first

With the age of the vehical it might be a good idea to do a compression test first. I would check the timing. Sounds like the engine is advancing for some reason, if that checks out then recheck for vacuum leaks( it could be leaking past the base gasket, vacuum booster, or intake), The vehicle has a carb. not a throttle body injection? Also if you can retrieve that engine code it may be helpful.

SOURCE: engine cough

you have a missfire in one or more of the cyclinders. Could be cause by faulty coil when hot or as you mentioned a wire or plug. But if it runs well any other time I would say it a coil when gets hot

Yes it does sound like a fueling issue, but could also be vacuum sensor or airflow sensor.

If you haven't replaced the fuel filter in 3 years, then it may be about time you did. It is also one of the least expencive parts, and even a DIY job if access is possible, but you have to depressurise the fuel line before changing.

You can test the output of the fuel pump through the filter with a little care and a short length of pipe into a fuel can. It can as you say be a faulty fuel pump - but you will only know by testing it.

2006 F 350 6.0 diesel hesitates, stutters when giving fuel around 1800 to 2400 rpm.

This problem is caused by a MAF sensor or even a clogged file pressure rail check both and if those aren't your problems then it could be bad diesel or your idle control is bad check all of the above and replace all if possible

What is trouble code P1336

Here's what I've found about this P1336 code:
P1336 Crankshaft sensor is out of sync with camshaft sensor test
If 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.
On 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.

When i step on gas pedal seems sluggish

Before making any suggestions

Do you ever do more than just drive
the car until something happens?

If so, what Preventative Maintenance in
detail, has been done in the last 3 years
altogether (vehicle history)

Any Dash Check Lights on &
have you checked for codes?

Do you have a repair shop you
have used for 20 years, that does
good work?

What engine do you have?

Hesitates when,up hills,between 25 & 40 mph etc

How long has this driveability issue been there?

Have you had it checked out at all by anyone?

Chevy express 1999 didn't start, i have a code p1336. i've change the crank shaft sensor but it didn't strat and i have a P1336 code again

Trouble Code: P1336

CKP Sensor System Variation Not Learned
Possible Causes:

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.

1998 Ford Expedition XLT Eddie Bauer truck kicks/stutters after I take my foot off accelerator at 70mph-why?

You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, if nothing shows then it is very possible you have a failing fuel pump.
