Question about 2005 Ford Ranger

I have a 2005 ford ranger with 3 liter engine. I

I have a 2005 ford ranger with 3 liter engine. I have a P1336 diagnostic code. The feedback I have read indicated this could be one or more or either the cam or the crank sensors. A repair manual indicates these sensors are inside the distributor module. This module is mounted of top of the right bank rocker cover. Suggest to clean these sensors before replacing them. I am deducting that to clean the sensors one would have to remove the distributor module. If this is correct, are there any machanical timing issues one must manage? Any loose parts?

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.

I - spxcorporationotc-qny-rt%20copy.jpg 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. For more details, please contact ATS.

Take my advice, bro. When you're not 100% sure what the feedback had indicated, either the cam or the crank sensors. In my opinion, unless you are a professional mechanic having proper knowledge on the mechanics of this car, I would suggest you take the car to a dealer workshop and get it checked properly, because if you make a mistake and stuff the timing or interfer with the sensors and then it wont work as it should, you'll end up paying more than if you had the car serviced by a professional mechanic who specializes in this field, because these days cars have such delicate components and onboard computers, it is impossible to do the repairs yourself. This is no longer the 60-70's wehn you could fix a car yourself. Today, at the opening of your Ford's bonnet there is an intricate network of pipes, tubes, wires, anti-pollution monitors and other 'no-touch' componentry running to and from one end and another. So, to go ahead and do it youself, it would mean you first have to remove this 'component', then that 'bolt', and so on, eventually it will turn out you'll be stripping your engine and cannot recall what goes where. And, of course if you don't have the proper machines to monitor the cam dwell and timing, you'll further aggravate the problem. Although the repair manual tells you this and that but does it tell you the kind of machines and testing devices you'd need to test the sensors and or to reset the timing and cam dwell angle, or an oscilloscope to test other functions for a smooth running engine should you wish to do it yourself?

P1336 code


Ford has a TON of technical service bullpens for this code but mostly on F-150s. Call your local dealer and ask for the service manager. If he is an honest fellow, he may let you in on a secret recall. Otherwise, The code is for crankshaft position/camshaft position input signal error.

Good luck.

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.

Engin light is on when i check it by computer it gives me error P1336 [25,10,13,36] , please refer to relevant terchnical manual


The crankshaft position (CKP) system variation learn feature is used to calculate reference period errors caused by slight tolerance variations in the crankshaft, and the CKP sensors. The calculated error allows the powertrain control module (PCM) to accurately compensate for reference period variations. This enhances the ability of the PCM to detect misfire events over a wider range of engine speed and load.

The code P1336 is for a Crankshaft (CKP) and/or Camshaft (CMP) position sensor input signal to PCM concert. It is triggered if the input signal to the PCM for either of these sensors is erratic. Per the factory service manual, this can be due to:
- a damaged PCM
- damaged CKP sensor
- damaged CMP sensor
- base engine
- harness concerns.

The service manual suggests checking the following items:
- harness routings,
- alterations,
- improper shielding,
- or electrical interference from other improperly functioning systems.

To properly check the operation of the CMP and CKP, you'll really need an oscilloscope. The code is probably being triggered due to a faulty sensor or connection and not something that just needs to be reset.

Step / Action / Yes / No

1. Did you perform the Diagnostic System Check-Engine Controls?
Yes: Go to Step 2
No: Go to Diagnostic System Check - Engine Controls

2. Preform the CKP system variation learn procedure. Refer to CKP System Variation Learn Procedure. Did you complete the action?
Yes: Go to Step 3
No: Go to Diagnostic Aids

3. Clear the DTCs with a scan tool.
Turn OFF the ignition.
Start the engine.
Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC as specified in the supporting text.
Does the DTC run and pass?
Yes: Go to Step 4
No: Go to Step 2

4. With a scan tool observe the stored information, Capture Info.
Does the DTC run and pass?
Yes: Go to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List
No: System OK


Diagnostic Aids:
The CKP system variation values are not stored in the PCM memory after a learn procedure has been performed. If the actual CKP variation is not within the CKP system variation compensating values stored in the PCM, DTC P0300 may set.

The CKP system variation learn procedure is also required when the following service procedures have been performed, regardless of whether DTC P1336 is set.
An engine replacement
A PCM replacement
A harmonic balancer replacement
A crankshaft replacement
Any engine repairs which disturb the CKP sensor relationship

If the CKP system variation learn procedure cannot be performed successfully, check for the following conditions and correct as necessary:
A damaged reluctor wheel
Excessive crankshaft runout
A damaged crankshaft
Interference in the signal circuit of the CKP sensor
A coolant temperature that is not within the Conditions For Running the DTC
The ignition switch is in the ON position until the battery is drained
A PCM power disconnect with the ignition ON may erase the stored value and set the DTC P1336

Hope helps.
