Question about 2003 Ford Mustang

If both cam/crank position sensors have ONLY been unbolted and replaced with new sensors, do they require synchronization?

Error code P1336. Cam or crankshaft HAS NOT been replaced. Only sensors.

Sensors do not need to be recalibrated , the ecm should have the codes cleared . Then turn the ignition system on with data reader hooked up to see if sensors repaired the fault code.

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.

Fault code p1336. Both cam/crank sensors have been replaced. Fault code still present. Could it be that computer has not reset yet?


There are two possibilities...

  1. The crankshaft and camshaft sensors are not properly synchronized to each other. This is a procedure that must be performed with special tools.
  2. A bad alternator diode can cause this code to set due to voltage ripple. Have the alternator/charging system tested.

Pcm?


PCM= Powertrain Control Module. It is the brains of the car, it reads the sensor in put from all sensors including the cam shaft position sensor

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.

    On engine 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.
