I would think it would be just the Camshaft Position Sensor.I looked up the codes and they say pretty much the samething.


P0340 Ford Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction


P1336 Ford Crankshaft/Camshaft Sensor Range/Performance

SOURCE: Where is the cam sensor on a 7.3 diesel 1996 f-250 4wd pickup?

To fix it, your going to need a 10mm wrench (or socket with a short 3" extension, experiment at
home to find the exact tool you think you will need if stranded on the side of the road,
at night, in the cold and rain). A flathead screwdriver, and a replacement CPS. Ideally, you should use a 6-point tool, as the CPS bolt is known for rounding off. Locate the CPS. It is on the passenger side of the engine block. Accessible from under
the truck, and located about the 10 o'clock position behind the crankshaft front pulley.
Reach up and unplug the wiring harness, remove the 10mm bolt, and GENTLY pry the bad CPS
out with the flat screwdriver.

SOURCE: P1345 Code on a '97 Chevy 5.7 in a Silverado

that code usually means the distributor was moved and the cam and crank signal sync is off,you mwill need a scanner capable of data display to reset it,it should be near or at 0 degrees,if you do not have access to a scanner your local shop should be more than capable of reseting it.hope this helped

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?

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.

Could the 2004 4.0 SOHC explorer have jumped time with the code P1336?


P1336 - Crank / Cam Sensor Range / Performance.
The code P1336 is in most cases set due to a Mis-Adjusted Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) Synchronizer.Ford makes a special tool to perform the alignment of the synchronizer assembly at top dead center or #1 cylinder compression stroke.

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.

How to fix obd code p1351 on 1996 ford bronco


P1351 Ignition Diagnostic Monitor circuit Input fault
The code 1351 in most case is set when the Ignition moduel has been replace with the gray one and it calls for the Black one.
The ICM for this vehicle should be Black in color instead of Grey. Ford parts books are incorrect and show that this vehicle should have a Grey module. The Motorcraft part number for the Black ICM is a DY-679
Good luck and make sure you use the OEM part.

You always need to check the wiring system when you get a code and not just throw parts at it,I'm sorry this happened to you.

Abs light is always on.


Likely fault is the speed sensor. You should pull a code on the situation. Have a parts store pull your codes. Advance or O'Riely are a good source or Checker Auto parts on the west coast

I just had the same problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl. Mine was the Camshaft Position Sensor. Only available at the dealership and cost $85.00 at the parts counter. Easy to install - remove the distributor cap and rotor. Sensor is a flat disc sitting in distributor with wire running to connection at side of engine. Remove the sensor and install the new one in same position. try it you'll like it. If not then go for the Crankshaft position sensor. Go to the auto parts store and also buy a new distributor cap and rotor while you are at it. GOOD LUCK!
