Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Check Engine Light / Crankshaft Sensor

We replaced the engine and all new sensors. The check engine light was throwing code P0336. Replaced both new crankshaft sensors, light still on. Took it to the dealership to flash or re-learn the ECM, light still on! In the interim, the dash lights started going haywire, blinkers stopped working, battery problems. The dealership wants to order a factory oem crankshaft sensor and re-flash, sounds like a waist of money. Could this be electrical and if so, how costly is this?

    How could you even guess the cost to repair until the problems are diagnosed.

    Start with 3 hours shop labor time and go from there.

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.

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!

I have replaced two two camshaft sensors on my 2007 Saturn outlook Xr for code 336 and no results please help


Who replaced the sensor ? You or a repair shop ? The DTC P0336 does not say to replace a sensor . You do not have access to the diagnostic trouble code diagnostic's . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .

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.
