SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

SOURCE: 1997 Bonneville - Engine light code P0303

the code you have is for a misfire on #3 cylinder. (im sure you knew this right?). the crankshaft position sensor will not cause one individual cylinder to misfire. what i typicaly do in this scenario is switch the ignition wire off of the guilty cylinder onto a known good firing cylinder and see if misfire moves to the other cylinder. i repeat this process by switching the spark plug and finaly the fuel injector. a compression check may be in order as well (but not a likely cause) unless you have access to a tech 2 (gms diag computer) you will need to clear this code after each component is moved and see if you get a new code ie :p0304 if switched to #4 cylinder..other wise if you do have access to a computer that has a misfire chart in its features you can quickly identify the guilty component. as i side note the ignition coil may also be faulty, but i believe your vehicle has a 3.8liter meaning that it has a coil pack....switch the others i listed and see ow you make out....good luck!

SOURCE: Engine Performance problem

Clean the Mass Flow sensor. It is probably a black module with wires on the side of the throttle body. There are a few ways to do this, but I suggest buying a can of spray designed for this purpose from your local parts store (electrical spray or MAF spray).

Be careful not to break the little wire. It costs a few hundred bucks to replace.

SOURCE: Check engine code

either the crankshaft sensor is defective or the wiring harness or connector to it are damaged, most likey you can just replace the sensor. the sensor is near the crank pulley front of engine.

Solutions to OBD2 codeS. 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5t codes: P2111 P0336

The CPS is positioned so that these teeth/cogs pass very closely to its magnetic end. As the crankshaft rotates, the raised areas pass by the sensor and complete the electromagnetic circuit. When the indentations (between the teeth) pass the CPS, the circuit is briefly interrupted. Since the camshaft rotates very quickly, the process of repeatedly completing and interrupting the circuit occurs in milliseconds. This progression of completing and interrupting the CPS circuit produces a waveform pattern. This pattern is recognized by the PCM as crankshaft position. The CPS and all of the camshaft position sensors function in much the same manner.
When the engine is running, the PCM constantly compares input signals from the crankshaft and the camshafts. If the crankshaft position is not within a specified degree of variation from the camshaft/s, under a given set of circumstances for a set period of time, a P0336 code will be stored and a malfunction indicator lamp may be illuminated.
Typically, when this code is set, the engine will not start. If the engine does start, it will likely run very poorly. Symptoms of P0336
  • Engine no start condition
  • Hesitation upon acceleration
  • General lack of engine performance
  • Diminished fuel efficiency
Troubleshooting P0336 A diagnostic scanner, a digital volt/ohmmeter (DVOM), a portable oscilloscope, and access to a reliable vehicle information source such as All Data DIY will be needed before attempting to diagnose a code P0336.
Begin with a visual inspection of all system related wiring harnesses and connectors. Wiring circuits, electrical sensors, and/or connectors that have been contaminated with engine oil, coolant, or power steering fluid should be your focus. Petroleum based fluids are known to corrode the protective insulation on wiring and lead to shorted or open circuits and possibly a stored P0336.

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 !
