If we could run a test on your car when your problem occurs, we would probably find a faulty starter. The next thing we would check would be a bad connection in the wiring, especially the main power wire...could also be a faulty ground.

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.

Where is the crank position sensor located?


its not your crank positioning sensor. all the CPS does is control your spark plugs up to around 500 rpms (while trying to start) once started the ECM takes over that function in conjuction with your cam position sensor

First, verify that there is gas in the vehicle. Next, listen for the pump to energize when you turn the ignition switch to the on position. If you dont hear anything, check the fuel pump relay. Swap it with another one next to it, they are often the same part. If it still doesn't energize, its most likely the pump thats failed. If you hear the pump energize, then the pump pressure needs to be checked. A fuel gauge needs to be connected under the hood on the fuel rail to read system pressure. Verify that its at factory specs. If not, replace the pump.

2000 3.5 oldsmobile intrigue stalls or misfires after driving for 10 minutes - thowing it in neutral and reving it keeps it going


You might have an issue with the crank or cam sensors (have these cecked). The crank sensors on these models tend to fail, typical symtoms include; misfires, hard starts, stalling. Check also your coil packs (they are mounted atop the sparkplugs as a set). Hopefully this helps!!

Clutch pedal switch would not let the starter to operate. So you can eliminate that. Possibly the fuel pump.or it was momentarily flooded. When you pushed the accelerator pedal whaile cranking you were allowing more air into the engine, thereby blowing the excess gas thru and out the engine.I would have it checked for correct fuel pressure and any vacuum leaks.
