Trouble Code: P0336



Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor Performance

Possible Causes:

The following table illustrates the ECM connector locations:

| ECM Connector Location |

| C2 | C1 |

| Front of Vehicle |



Use the J 35616-A/BT-8637 Connector Test Adapter Kit for any test that requires probing the ECM harness connector or a component harness connector. Using this kit prevents damage to the harness or component terminals.
 
The ECM uses the CMP sensors to determine engine speed and position when there is a CKP sensor condition.
 
The engine will operate with a CKP sensor condition only if the ECM has stored the learned reference position of the camshafts in memory. With a crankshaft position sensor condition other than a short to voltage in the signal circuit, the engine will go into a limp home mode after a hard restart. The ECM then calculates engine speed from one of the camshaft position sensors. During a limp home mode the following additional DTCs may set and should be ignored:

DTC P0324 Knock Sensor (KS) Module Performance
 
DTC P1011 Intake Camshaft Position Actuator Park Position Bank 1
 

The following conditions may cause this DTC to set:

An intermittent condition in the CMP actuator solenoid circuits can cause a CKP DTC to set. Inspect the CMP actuator solenoid harness connections and related wiring, if you suspect this condition.
 
Intermittent short to ground in the signal circuit
 
Excessive air gap between the CKP sensor and the reluctor wheel
 
CKP sensor damage or improper installation
 
Crankshaft reluctor wheel damage or improper installation
 
Foreign material passing between the CKP sensor and the reluctor wheel
 

Excess crankshaft end play causes the reluctor wheel to move out of alignment with the CKP sensor. This could result in any one of the following conditions:

A hard start
 
A start and stall
 
Erratic performance
 

For an intermittent condition, refer to Intermittent Conditions .

Trouble Code: P0442



Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Small Leak Detected

Possible Causes:



To improve the visibility of the smoke exiting the EVAP system, observe the suspected leak area from different angles with the J 41413-SPT High Intensity White Light.

Fuel Level Sensor Performance

Possible Causes:



Use the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data in order to locate an intermittent condition. If you cannot duplicate the DTC, the information included in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data may help in determining the number of miles since the DTC set. The Fail Counter and Pass Counter can also help in determining the number of ignition cycles that the diagnostic test reported a pass and/or fail. Operate the vehicle within the same freeze frame conditions, including those for RPM, for engine load, for vehicle speed, for temperature, and for others. This will isolate at what point the DTC failed.
 
Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.
