How know if your crankshaft sensor going bad?

The crankshaft position sensor sends pulses to the ECM to inform it of the crankshaft's position (thus the name). The ECM uses this info to determine when to fire the spark plugs and fuel injectors. Failure of the sensor will cause the vehicle to shut off while running, or crank without starting. They usually fail intermittently at first, often causing ransom shutdowns, which will often allow immediate restarts. Eventually, the time between shutdown and restart gets longer and longer, and eventually the sensor will fail totally. Often, in the early stages, there will not be a Check Engine Code set for the problem, since it occurs so suddenly.

Code p0355

Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to clear the Code and try it again. There are several possibilities for the problem. The connector from the Crankshaft Sensor may Code a 355 when disturbed. This sensor connects to the coils and tells them when to fire.

If it is possible to switch the leads to the coils it would have the effect of moving spark plug wires on a Distributor cap. But usually the harness will only fit one way on most cars.

I do not know what problem you were originally seeking to solve, and the Crankshaft sensor may have been the original underlying cause.

Check the plug connector for corrosion or loose pins. If the problem does not go away, the wire loom may have a bad spot. The crankshaft position sensor can go bad.

P0335 = Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction
This is a sensor used to let the computer know where in the rotation the crankshaft is so it knows when to fire the sparkplugs (among other things). The sensor may be bad or just the connection.
