    the bearing in your distributor is weak
    sorry your having all these issues you musta gotten a used one that was beaten by the previous owner both my vg33e engine nissan suvs have been great. your current issue sounds like a distributor failing to me, take the cap off and try to turn the rotor if it turns by hand the distributor shaft bearing has failed, replace, if it wont turn pull off rotor and the black plastic round thing screwed down on the distributor and look for powder, if any is present, bearing is on its way out and/or it has gotten shards in somewhere they dont belong. your coil maybe getting weak as well, which is built into distributor on these trucks. but the p1336 says crank pos sensor so i would replace it

    Distributors are one of the most common issues with the VG33E in the xterra, the camshaft position sensor is inside the distributor.
    Here's the how to for bearing replacement (really cheap

The crank position sensor is not sending a signal to the computer.
Could be the sensor, the wiring, or the sensor plate.

The knock sensor is not a huge deal to replace and will not turn on the light. It should be dont though.

The crankshaft sensor is located directly between the engine and transmission. It is dead center at the bottom.

P0335 and P0336 Engine crank sensor malfunction
To test this code, have a visual inspection of the location and wirings of the crank sensor. If the engine has a cam sensor, you might mistook it as the crank sensor (it is a good idea to contact ATS that can research this for you). Check the sensor wires for insulation making sure it is getting a voltage signal as shown in the wiring diagram. Sometimes, the wires itself is soaked with dirty oil causing the sensor to fail. If OK, check the engine timing belt system for any slack which can also cause the sensor to throw in the code. If all of these prove OK, remove the crank sensor and check it for resistance as compared to the standard specs. Lots of times, if the sensor probe end is contaminated with oil or cracked, this can only be revealed after the crank sensor is removed

SOURCE: i just get a 2000 lanos but the check engine ligth

Essentially the same as P0136, P0137 refers to the second oxygen sensor on Bank 1. P0137 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 2 is located to the rear of the catalytic converter and should produce an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of the catalytic converter. This rear (sensor 2) sensor is less active than the signal produced by the front sensor. However, if the ECM senses the sensor is inactive, this code will set.

Symptoms There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.

A code P0137 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty O2 sensor Exhaust leak near the rear sensor
  • Plugged catalyst
  • Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
  • High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit

  • Possible Solutions
  • Replace faulty sensor
  • Repair exhaust leak near the rear sensor
  • Check for restriction in catalyst and replace as necessary
  • Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit
The other code is your crankshaft position sensor. You need to replace both of the sensors and the check engine light will go off.

I don't know what the codes mean but do they go away if you put the old ecm back on it? I think you should check the ignition fuse first. It may be located under the hood but also under the dash in your regular fuse box. I have seen them in both places on various vehicles. If the fuse is good then continue on. Next what I would like you to try is get a hair dryer and run an extention cord to the truck. Take the distributer cap off and inside on top of the distributor is a half moon type plastic coded little box wraped half way around the center shaft. That is the ignition modulator.
I want you to heat it up as hot as you can get it without melting the plstic and then hurry and replace the cap as fast as you can. Get everything away from the fan and run and try to start it. If it sputters or maybe even starts for a few minutes that is the culprit. It may even keep runnng for a while but rest assured it is on the way out.
These things are gold when buying one new. If you want a good laugh then call the dealers and asked them what they want for one. besure you are sitting down when you do. The aoto parts stores want a couple hundred for them. One of the greatest rip offs in the auto industry was to replace this 2 dollar item and charge what they do in order to replace the 7 dollar set of points. I myself suggest you buy the entire distributar at the salvage yard. Choose a pick a part if you have one in your area. That is one that lets you remove the parts yourself and you get them cheaper. The distributor should be no more then 30 to 50 bucks. mine I could have gotten for 30 but they were out of my model and I didn't want to wait. The next place wanted 80 but I told them I had 50 and they let me have it. They won't sell you just the modulator. The distributar is worthless without it.
Just bring it home and replace that modulator with your and not the whole distributor. besure the piece you need is in the one you get at the wrecking yard. It is a high theft item and people steel them and sell them on ebay. About 100 bucks on ebay but you have to wait for shipping and taking a chance the guy won't send you the wrong one.
So let me know if I have been of any help. The Raz

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.

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.

Nissan xterra knock sensor

It's the valley of the engine underneath the intake manifold. It's about an $800 job because the top of the engine has to come off. However, unless you have a supercharged xterra it shouldn't effect performance. Also, the knock sensor will not trip the check engine light, as it does not indicate a primary problem, so if your light is on you should have another code that should be fixed first.
