Default P339 error code

Can someone tell me what this error code is?

Driving home on the expressway today and my PT hesitated. Then, the engine light came on (steady). It did it a second time and I noticed the RPMs jump up a bit.

It seemed very similar to when I rec'd the P340 code during the summer. That problem was resolved when I replaced the camshaft sensor.

Any ideas?

Mistake, it is a P339 error.

My Engine check light went out after a few driving cycles. So, it's been a few weeks and the P0339 error hadn't returned.. until yesterday. Driving on the expressway with a semi-truck behind be no less! The PT lurched and the RPMs jumped, then dropped, just like they did when I had me P0340 error in the spring of this year (changed Cam Sensor then and problem went away)

Is it possible that a misfire could also cause this P0339 code? I'm just wondering. I recently changed the valve cover gaskets and I'm wondering if the plugs/wires have a problem from the oil leak I had.

The error codes list are posted as a sticky in the Tech Section of the forum.

Here's what your code stands for, goodluck!

-P0339 Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor Circuit Intermittent

NIL8r,

When you replaced the Camshaft sensor, did you use a Chrysler part or one from an autoparts store? Most of the time, an aftermarket parts store sensor won't work very well.

I used a dealer part. After reading the posts here, I didn't want to use aftermarket.
So, a misfire wouldn't pull this error?

I see no reason why a misfire would cause a 339 CKP code. But something else you said "may" be your problem. You said you had an oil leak and you replaced the cam cover gasket. Did some of the oil from the leak you had go down the back of the block towards the oil filter? If that was the case you may have gotten oil onto/into the connector on the CKP (crankshaft position sensor) . It's located just above the oil filter. The oil that had previously leaked onto it may be slowly working it's way into the sensor connector. I would unplug the conector and clean out both sides of the connector. If you need a pic, Crewzin can probably post a pic of it from the Haynes manual. It's pic #5.3 on page #6-7. The instructions for removal are right below the pic.

The only problem with that is that the Crankshaft Position sensor was moved in 2003 or 2004 to a place right in back of the starter which is the other side of the engine and a PITA to try and get to. Some have even had to take the starter off to get to it.

If his oil leak was bad enough it could have gone down onto the CKP no matter where it was located on his engine. There is no particular reason that it would only go down the back to above the oil filter because that is where the 2003 haynes manual said it was. I honestly haven't had the need to check its position on my 2004. I was just postulateing a "what if". It could just as easily create the same problem nomatter where the CKP is located on his engine and I'm definitely not saying that this is the answer. It's just a possability and maybe the next logical step to check.

Tnx for the replies. I'll definitely give it a look and report what I find. Maybe it will help someone else later.
Oil leak was worse in the wells than around the outside. That's why I was thinking about a misfire.
