To BIGHWEELS197, take your car to AutoZone and have them scan the computer - they'll do it for free, whereas the dealer will charge an hour's labor. Post the codes here and we can determine the problem.

To wjcomet, here are your code definitions:

P0133 O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response (Bank 1 Sensor 1) - this means that the primary O2 sensor on the bank of cylinders with cylinder number 1 in it is not heating up quickly enough. The heating element is eventually getting it to temperature (it has to be heated up to work) but it's getting to be too long to heat up, which can fail you for cold-start emissions. You'll have to replace this sensor eventually.

P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor “A” Circuit Range/Performance (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)

This indicates a problem with your cam angle sensor. It could be that the sensor's pickup is not working right anymore (this does happen) but it could also be because your O2 sensor isn't getting to temperature soon enough and excess emissions are being detected, the car's computer may think that the cam position is off. If the cam isn't timed right, excess emissions can happen, so the computer may believe that's what is happening. I wouldn't be surprised however if the O2 sensor that's going bad is causing this code as well.

P0404 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Circuit Range/Performance

Indicates a failure of the EGR valve. Again, there's a chance that the failing O2 sensor can trigger this.

P1404 is a manufacturer-specific auxiliary emissions control failure code. I don't have access to that code's definition for your car, but again it's likely to be a result of the O2 sensor fault that you're having, since it's emissions-related and the O2 sensors are the main controllers of emissions on a car.

My advice would be to change that O2 sensor, have the codes reset, and see which ones, if any, return. If none come back, you likely had only the O2 problem and that fault caused the other codes as well. If one or more of the codes returns, we'll have to troubleshoot those individually.

What has to be done to eliminate recurrent DTC P1336?

The first thing you probably should do is get a copy of the shop manual for your year and model. The manual would have the actual test procedures for the code.
You probably know code 1336 means the signal from the cam and crank sensors is not aligned, meaning the cam timing is off as far as the engine computer can see.
It could have been one of the sensors, but you normally get another code for that sensor too. It could also be a timing chain problem, or a wiring problem going back to the computer.

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.

P1336 trailblazer 2002 we put a new sensor light still on

You need someone with a scan tool to hook up to it and clear the codes.Autozone or kragen used to do it for free I would call one or the other and see if they will still clear the codes for you.It only takes a few minutes to clear the codes.

Saturn vue throwing po code 502

That is a speed sensor code. Remove it, inspect the wiring and clean it, sometimes thats all they need.

Lincoln ls has a trouble code p1336 and po350

P0350 is Ignition coil primary/secondary circuit malfunction,could be faulty igntion coil or module.P1336 is crankshaft position system variation not learned.This is done with a Tech2 at your local dealership you would be best served taking this car to your dealer to have it diagnoised.

After so many miles on the distributor,the oil seal can wear out. Oil and vapor can slowly enter the senor area and cause fail rotation/spot information to the computer ECU.

In order to inspect for potential oil leak inside the distributor,you must be pretty handy.

Pull the cap and rotor and inspect them for oil.

Look directly into the shaft of the distributor and see is there any loose plastic (from the cover) or metal particle.

This key is to keep it clean.

Use a can of compress air if you have one.

Put the cap and rotor back on. Make sure all the wires are secure and reset the code.

or disconnect,wait 2 minutes and reconnect battery cable.

If you see oil the you will need to locate and replace the rubber seal.

Oil and electronic part does not play well together,

Please keep me up to day by appending to this post.

Good luck.

Ck engine light on code po335 p1336 also location of sensor?

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

Saturn vue 2002 aed v6 not passing inspection test

sounds like a dirty mass air flow sensor.if you have in deed replaced it i would check the voltage going to the sensor.perhaps its a faulty connection between the power controle module and the sensor socket.if that dosent work i have a few more tricks to try get back to me and i will help further.
