Code P1336 Lincoln Description
The Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor detects the position of the camshaft. The CMP sensor identifies when piston number 1 is on its compression stroke. A signal is then sent to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and used for synchronizing the sequential firing of the fuel injectors. Coil on plug (COP) ignition applications use the CMP signal to select the correct ignition coil to fire.
The Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor is a magnetic transducer mounted on the engine block adjacent to a pulse wheel located on the crankshaft. By monitoring the crankshaft mounted pulse wheel, the CKP sensor is the primary sensor for ignition information to the PCM.
The PCM monitors the CKP sensor and the CMP sensor. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when the PCM has detected a synchronization or erratic signal from the CKP sensor or the CMP sensors.
