P1309 misfire code

Could the 2004 4.0 SOHC explorer have jumped time with the code P1336?


P1336 - Crank / Cam Sensor Range / Performance.
The code P1336 is in most cases set due to a Mis-Adjusted Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) Synchronizer.Ford makes a special tool to perform the alignment of the synchronizer assembly at top dead center or #1 cylinder compression stroke.

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. Do these checks also on the crank sensor itself whether it is located in the front of the engine or at the flywheel at the rear of the engine. Ditto for the cam sensor.

On engine 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.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Engine light on with code P1309


This code could mean:
  • the camshaft position sensor could be defective,
  • the camshaft synchronizer (the part that took the place of the distributor on DIS engines) has failed,
  • if you have recently had the camshaft synchronizer replaced it could be out of time.
