Code P1336

I'm getting code p1336 on my 02 Nissan Frontier 3.3. My truck was fine with no codes and I decided to do a cooling system flush and code p1336 popped on. I don't know if the flush caused it, but the truck runs fine with no symptoms. When I search the code it says it's the crankshaft position sensor. If my crankshaft position sensor was bad would I have any symptoms, what else could cause this code?

On a VQ or a QR engine, a bad crank sensor can cause a no start, but the crank sensor mounted on the transmission bellhousing on a VG33E engine is only a monitoring sensor for the ECM to reference. It can't cause a no start condition or any other drivability concern if it fails.
so if the sensor is bad , will the ecm still adjust thee timing? I have the same issue with a P0335 and a P1336 code. the engine still seems to run properly but I wont be able to get it smoged .does the Tachometer run off of the Crank sensor, my tach still functions. I had the heads off and reconed and changed the sensor when I get to it easily then 350 miles later , it is throwing codes
