    could be a slightly corroded pin terminal at either end of the harness, a harness that is worn through and intermittently shorting on something or in extreme cases (I've only seen one or two) the thrust bearing on the crankshaft is worn and the sensor is not always aligned with the flywheel all of the time. That code also relates to the cam sensor so make sure that is in good condition as well.

This code states there is an intermittant loose of the Crankshaft sensor OR the camshaft sensor. Check the connections on the camshaft sensor and be sure they are clean and tight. Otherwise, you may have a bad connection internally or you could have oil inside due to it is mounted in the oil pump assembly (leftside, middle of engine) and is easy to get too.

My pt cruiser has code 1391. i changed cam sensor crank sensor wires plugs and coil still getting 1391 code and from 0 mph to 20 mph car skips and revs up any ideas?

The cam and crank sensors have the same power wire. Go after that one. They also have the same ground, but other sensors connect to it also. So it's not the ground. And they have separate return signal wires. Not them either.

Code p1391

You could've gotten dirt or grease inside the cam sensor connection. They are real fussy.

1998 ram 1500 code 1391

That code is Intermittent loss of camshaft positon sensor OR crankshaft position sensor. It would suggest to me that perhaps there is dirt obstructing the signal or possiblr wiring problems. A loose connection, corrosion, perhaps a bare spot on a wire. I'd check this stuff carefully before I started spending on new sensors. Hope this helps.

What is code 1391 for on 1999 jeep grand cherokee

Code 1391 = An intermittant loss of CMP (crankshaft position sensor) or CKP (crankshaft position sensor. This code could be related to just a bad connection at either sensor or the wiring harness, check the connections and be sure they are clean and tight fitting with no loose wire connections also within the connector itself. Otherwise you may end up replacing one or both of theses sensors to correct this issue,unless you have an oscilloscope to isolate which sensor.

Code 0700 with 1391 stand to what

P0700 its a transmission codefrom what i understand while the 1391 is a crank postion sensor. the P0700 comes up when the neutral safety switch starts to fail, but the crank postion get that error code, means you timing could be off..have you replaced a timing belt lately, if so, it might be a couple of teeth out, that might do it. i would check the sensor too though

Engine keeps missing. unknown codes

Code 1682 indicates low battery voltage. This could be a problematic alternator, which would likely cause misfiring. Autozone should be able to check this for you for free.

Code 1391 indicates the computer can not see the crank or cam sensor signal. This would likely be a result of the misfires.

Code 0320 indicates the crankshaft position sensor reference signal could not be found while the engine is cranking.

All of these issues point to either a cam/crank sensor malfunction or a charging system problem, either or both of which could cause the misfiring.
