CRANKSHAFT SENSOR, CODE 0335
Visitor, 2004 Nissan Sentra, 1.8L 4 Cylinder, 102,000 mi
Began intermittently running rough with intermittent cranking without starting when warm.
Code 0335 was set.
Wiring was fine. Connector was good -- not oil soaked, as some become.
Replaced Crankshaft Position Sensor with a reliable brand aftermarket part.
I had experienced difficulty starting on damp and rainy mornings. I took it to my local repair shop with whom I've done business for several years. They ran a diagnostic and the read out came back aas this problem with either or both the camshaft sensor and the crankshaft sensor. Looking for pricing on its repair at this point.
