Hi Anonymous, on a 2001 XL 1200C there is no Crank Position Sensor, it is called a Cam Position Sensor and is located behind the timing plate on the cam cover. For running roughly the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals,
ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, and or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damage intake or exhaust vale.
This should keep you busy for awhile.

97 tacoma runs a few seconds and dies. will stay running if you keep foot on gas for a few mins then let off. crankshaft sensor code, replaced it but still get code. could it be iac or tps


If the code for the crank sensor comes back, then there's still a fault in that circuit. Check for sensor resistance and wiring harness short or open. Crank sensor resistance should be 1,630 -2,740 ohms when cold. TPS would not cause those symptoms. IAC could cause rough idle but wouldn't affect higher RPMs. Bad coolant temp sensor could also be part of the problem. Bad sensor = ECM thinks engine is warmer than it is and provides too lean a mixture. But fix the crank sensor issue first since that affects the fuel injectors.

Have a 99 Frontier 3.3. Started running real rough, bucking and jerking. Didn't idle. Hard to start when warm.


I have seen a few crank sensors do this. When I pulled them, they had a small crack in them. Don't know where yours is. But guessing under the harmonic balancer.

is it a no crank or crank no start?
Possible causes for code P0335
- Faulty crankshaft position sensor
- Crankshaft position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Crankshaft position sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Signal plate may be damage
- Starter motor may be faulty
- Starting system circuit
- Dead or weak battery

Car stalls after A short drive and wont start and run for only A few seconds also runns rough


After it stalls and won't start check for spark and fuel. If it is missing spark, check the crank sensor and the ignition module. If it has spark check the resistance of the injectors.

I have a 1992 Mitsubishi Mighty Max v6 3.0. It runs rough at high speed (not necessarily rpm) and the check engine light was on earlier this week, but is now off. Does the computer retain check engine...


Yes, the computer does retain fault codes. They can be retrived either with a scan tool or by using an analog volt meter. (Good luck finding one of those if you don't already own one.)
Volt meter method:
Find the diagnostic connector located next to the fuse lock under the left side of the dash
Connect the positive lead of the volt meter to pin 1 on the diagnostic connector.
Connect the negative lead to pin 12. Turn the ignition switch on and disclosure of the ECM memory will begin.
The ECM will output 12 volt pulses. There are long pulses and short pulses. The long pulses count as tens and the short pulses count as ones. Example: 3 long pulses and 2 short pulses means code 32.
If there are 2 or more fault codes in memory, they will be output one at a time in order of the code number from lowest to highest.
