Unhappy P0300/P0335

REPLACED : Camshaft sensor @ 68,000 and 72,100
REPLACED : Crankshaft sensor @ 68,000 and 85,800 and (NOW) 89,600
I will be replacing it tomorrow (Sunday) with a NAPA part. And getting a MOPAR for the next time. Or I'll switch it out when I get a couple of hours on the weekend.
What is going on? I was told by a mechanic that my COIL wasnt putting out enough power at the first repair. Could this be the problem? Or ????? This Fresh Cruiser need some help.

Default Re: P0300/P0335

Most of us that went right for the MOPAR sensor when the first one failed never had to change it again. There are some that say the MOPAR sensor is just like all the other sensor in every other store but we've proved that the MOPAR one seems to last a lot longer for some reason.

If you trust the mechanic and he said the coil isn't putting out enough spark, it's easy enough to put a new coil in and chalk that off the list.

With the money you spent on those 5 sensors,it would have been worth it to go Mopar the first time.
Also,it might not be a bad idea to check both wiring harnesses for any wear & tear;If the CPS wires get in-between the radiator hoses,it can cause thermal breakdown of the insulation,and the CKS wiring has been know to come into contact with the axle,which wears thru the insulation(CREWZIN knows this too well).....Both of those situations can result in a ground fault,and can/will trigger CEL codes.
