Hi Anonymous, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs. Please visit the website below for morinformation and good luck.

01 dodge dakota 3.9. no power to coil replaced engine control relay still no power can jump across relay get power but no start and get code for no rpm

If you're getting a code for no RPM, the PCM is not receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The PCM uses the signal from the crankshaft position sensor to fire the coil/spark plugs. Check the wiring to the crankshaft position sensor and check the sensor itself.

P1336 gm code

P1335 CHEVROLET P1335 CHEVROLET - Crankshaft Position Circuit Possible causes
- Faulty Crankshaft Position Sensor
- Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor circuit poor electrical connection help.png Help with this
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/Loss of Power
- Engine Stall
P1335 CHEVROLET Description
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor sends pulses to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) as the reluctor wheel teeth rotate past the CKP sensor. The PCM uses the CKP pulses to synchronize the ignition and fuel injector operation, and to time the interval between each CKP pulse. The PCM determines when an excessive change in crankshaft speed occurs by comparing each new time interval with the previous interval. A misfire causes an unexpected change in the crankshaft speed. A certain amount of acceleration/deceleration is expected between each firing stroke, but if the crankshaft speed changes more than an expected amount, the PCM interprets this as a misfire. The interval between CKP sensor pulses is extremely small. At high engine speeds, slight variations in the following components make misfire detection difficult:
- Crankshaft
- Reluctor wheel
- CKP sensor
The PCM learns variations during the Crankshaft Position System Variation Learning Procedure. The PCM compensates for these variations when performing detect misfire calculations. Only a scan tool can command the PCM to perform the Crankshaft Position System Variation Learning Procedure again.
Perform the learning procedure after the following actions:
- A PCM replacement
- Any operation or repair involving the crankshaft, the CKP sensor, or the CKP sensor to reluctor wheel gap relationship.
- An engine replacement.
- The ignition switch is in the ON position until the battery is drained.

How to replace crankshaft sensor on 2001 sonata V6

  • Disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable to prevent accidental shorts that could damage the electronic control module.

  • Find the crankshaft position sensor. It may be on the front of the engine, on the side or in the rear. A shop manual should be able to tell you where it is for your car's year, make and model.

  • Disconnect the 3 wires that lead to the crankshaft sensor. One of these is the current feed, and the other 2 are the ground wire and the sensor's output. Keep track of which is which--They will connect to the corresponding places on the replacement sensor.

  • Remove the crankshaft position sensor. If it is mounted on the front of the engine, the sensor will typically be fitted into a bracket hole and will be secured with a small bolt, which must be removed.

  • Install the replacement sensor and connect the three wires. Most sensors lock into position and do not require adjustment. If the sensor is on the side of the engine, you will likely need to install a new rubber O-ring. Do not reinstall the O-ring that came off when the old sensor was removed. For the handful of crankshaft position sensors that need adjustment, you can often use a paper spacer placed on the end of the sensor. When finished, reconnect the battery.
