It's a big job , not expensive in parts , but YES in labor
here is a recent thread with info in it
This is a discussion on Crank position sensor, p-0336 within the RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion forums, part of the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Forum category; I have 220,000kms on my 2015, delete tune from Celtic. 3”flo pro turbo to muffler, threw that code yesterday and came to a Quick stop. ...
I have 220,000kms on my 2015, delete tune from Celtic. 3”flo pro turbo to muffler, threw that code yesterday and came to a
Quick stop. Tried resetting codes, says one p-0336 is permanent and truck will not start. Sitting in driveway now. Here’s the question, is this dealer only repair for best results or does anyone know of good reliable mechanic in Burlington Ontario? New to the area. Thanks
Since you're deleted and tuned, and obviously out of warranty, going to the dealer is not inclusive. And the dealer is going to use book rates. A good mechanic that has done this repair before should be able to get right on it and do it for less.
But the dealer may have the most experience in this repair, which involves removing the transmission. Any shop with the proper jacks, lifts, etc, this isn't that big of a deal as it sounds.
I guess your question to any shop is "have you done this repair before?" and hope they tell you the truth.
Good luck. Have you crawled underneath and inspected your wires? Varmints are known to chew on this sensor wire harness.
Thanks for the replies, I have crawled under. Wires all look good. Everything seems tight. Truck was just undercoated a couple weeks ago too which makes it even more fun. I have a tranny specialist that is apparently very reliable and trustworthy I am hoping to get the truck into this Tuesday. I tried a hard reset myself with battery disconnected for about 5 minutes. No difference. Truck just turns over and throws a permanent P-0336 code. I’ll give updates when I know.
Toronto auto show this weekend and my truck has first major failure at 220,000kms, sign from auto god? 🙏🏻😁
Of all the things that can go wrong on our EDs, the crank position sensor worries me the most. I am not wringing my hands or losing sleep mind you, and I do have the drive train and Maxcare warranty, but knowing this problem may crop up after the warranty period is troubling.
I know it was easy for the engineers to take the timing off the rear of the crank, but for ease of maintenance I do wish they had put it up front somewhere. Perhaps one of our diesel vendors will provide us with an aftermarket work around that will avoid the costly and time consuming repair.
Update, well it was the reluctor ring. Just going back together now. Should have truck back tomorrow. Changed sensor too, since all the labour was crazy to get in there.
What a great design🏻
