Hey,

I have a Citröen C3 1.4I-FCKFVB/246 with 4 Clindyer. It shows P1336 crankshaft/camshaft sensor range/performance. I have changed the crankshaft sensor but the code error comes back.

The thing is when I erase the code error with OBD, and drive the car over 40 km. The check engine signal comes up giving me same error code. The engine shakes a bit. What do you recommend?

Ps. The timing belt has been changed at 100,000km in 2016. The car has been driven over 131,000km now.

P1336 cam/crank sensor fault
If you changed one of them, maybe you could change the other?

It would be a cheap repair it changing the sensor cured the problem :)

VIN shows KFV engine not KFU (ET3). It won't have a camshaft sensor.

Check wiring from engine to engine ECU. Look for crushed/damaged loom. Check connector at crank angle sensor for oil/dirt ingress. Check the 3 engine ECU connectors for corroded/damp connections.

Engine "hiccups" can also be caused by a faulty fuel injector.
