2002 Chevy Malibu.Replaced Harmonic Balancer and crankshaft sensor (p0336)
Still getting the code Car ran fine before all was replaced everything. We replaced
the serpentine belt and a few weeks later noticed the balancer was slipping apart
(squealing loud) After replacing the Balancer the car ran for a day then would only
start if we where lucky. Code p0336 so we replaced the sensor now the Car starts
about every 5 times or so that we try BUT its idling/revving very high, like someone
is on the gas while in park. RPM gauge is not doing anything. Any ideas on what to
do next?
