    Went to go home after work and my car started for like 2 seconds then died from a cold start. had been getting a cam position sensor trouble code on bank one but car ran just fine. after car wouldn't start this time I ran a scan and got code P0336 crankshaft position sensor fault! funny thing is I had just taken my car to dealership to get my satellite radio checked out. they did a recall on the camshaft wiring recall. funny thing is I told them
    i had seen a trouble code for camshaft sensor and they said if its the crank sensor they would need to pull motor and it would cost around $4000 to fix. Thats got me thinking they rigged my car to fail...ugg I just hope this is a fairly easy fix.

    I have done some research and The sensor is on drivers side of engine in rear. check wiring and plug for damage.
    Can anyone help with this issue???? Thanks

  • The car would not start this morning. Tried several times with no luck. Finally started, so I drove straight to the repair shop. The Crank Shaft Sensor had to be replaced.

    Check engine light, hard to start, sluggish acceleration and no acceleration when floored.
    Dealer replaced crankshaft position sensor - $288 parts and labor.
    Problem fixed.

    I have been experiencing a no start condition. This occurs randomly. Usually after 2 - 3 cranks the car will start and has never stalled. Mechanics tell me that there are no codes that indicate a problem and they have started many times over a 5 - 7 day period and it has not happened while in their position. I am very frustrated because it is a real problem which I know will only get worse. I reported this problem during my warranty period and still not resolved. Not sure where to turn next.
