01 oldsmobile aurora crank sensor code

I recently did a diagnostic test for my V8 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 and as a result received the following codes, P1372, P0385, P0386, & P0335. I would like to first of all ask would any of these codes cause the car to shut off and stall to start. Do you know if it is possible to fix the problem yourself or would you suggest taking the vehicle to a mechanic.

    i have 01 aurora w/v8 [4.0] have a problem with shutting off at traffic lites and ocasionally while running - hot -cold doesn't matter. have several [13]codes but have 2 crank sensor and 1 cam sensor codes that stand out as worst codes. would this be the reason its shutting down all the time?would this also be the reason when i accel the motor it shuts down @ 4000 rpm then picks back up [doesn't totally die]? thx

    My 2003 Olds V8 4.0 cuts out (stalls) at traffic lights or in the middle of driving on the highway. Happens intermittantly and does not trigger a code. It starts up immediately but it's like a quick "power outage" and is fine after that. Someone said it may be a bad cam sensor. Does that sound like the likely culprit?

    My wife's car had the same problem. And after fixing the O2 sensors and the
    crank sensors the car would still shut off on her one day and not the next. I went to a parts shop and had them connect the code reader to the Aurora. Up came the idle control valve. I replace it and the problem went away, so far. But it was a shame the dealership we took it to did not think of checking this out.

    i am having a very rough idle when the car warms up a little, sometimes stalls at lights, had a crank sensor code, along with misfires come up. I have changed the coil pack on the side with the misfiring cyl. and it worked for a little but after a week, it has gone back to the same results, a little less tho, but it still happens. stalls on highway sometimes, and bad gas milage. and ideas? i heard this may also be crank sensors. plz help

In my experience, these codes point to the crankshaft postion sensor(S) It is best to have them both replace. After replacement, a "crank position variance re-learn" procedure will need to be done to relearn the new sensors. This will need to be done with a dealership scanner, or a higher end non-dealer scanner.Yes, these can cause these staling and starting problems, but so can a few other things. First step is to get the crank position sensors replaced, learned, and codes cleared.

What is the problem? I have a code flashing PO717 from a diagnostic scan on my 1996 Olds Aurora.

The PO717 code is for the transmission input speed sensor, or the wires. The sensor is located inside the transmission.

2001 oldsmobile aurora cranks but wont start

Yes your brother is partially right. the code says that it is the sensor circuit. so test the sensor and the wires. Does it seem to turn over faster than usual? if so your suspicions would also be correct (timing belt).

Where is the o2 sensor located on my 01 aurora 4.0

There are 4 of them, on the exhaust manifolds and system. I replaced mine only to find out the real issue was the intake manifold plenum gasket.
