Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
The ignition coil is part of the distributor assembly, and must be replaced as a unit. Please refer to Distributor, Removal and Installation for the procedure.
I don't believe that this is your problem I would suggest that you take a look at the crankshaft position sensor, rather than the coil (which is the distributor).
Remove the CKP sensor from the vehicle.
Visually inspect the sensor for signs of chipping or cracking, especially at the tip facing the flywheel.
Connect ohmmeter leads between the sensor terminals.
Compare the resistance with the following values:
1996-98 vehicles: 432-528 ohms at 77°F (25°C).
1999 vehicles: 166.5-203.5 ohms at 68°F (20°C).
2000 vehicles: 512-632 ohms at 68°F (20°C).
If the readings are outside of specifications, replace the sensor.

You may have some trouble seeing it as it is a little lower than what it appears to be in that picture.

Did you try looking from the bottom?
Like I said it sits lower than what appears on the picutres. They all show top view, while the sensor is low, it's very low.
Even if you had a new model that picutre is for the 1999-2000.
From the bottom look at the flywheel and I am sure you will spot the sensor.
Yes, I am fairly certain that is your problem. I would not waste my time with changing the distributor. If it was the distributor you would notice it throughout, not only when warmed up.
When we are done, hit accept and then it will prompt you to where you can add a bonus.
Well, you may want to check the sensor make sure its mounted right. I dont think it's the other two, I do blieve they came on due to the misfire.
Also the P1336 is a Crankshaft/Camshaft position code, and I hate to tell you this but yoru camshaft position sensor is a part of the distributor as well.
Well if the Crankshaft sensor is okay then you need to move on to the camshaft positions sensor (distributor) or have a freeze data done on the car to findout which sensor is giving wrong output.
Here is the code that's in question.
CKP = Crankshaft Postion Sensor
CMP = Camshaft Position sensor
You can pay me and the link will stay open.
Yes you need to have a freeze data or live data test done to isolate which circuit is giving low output. You have three codes, you need to find out if the sensors are bad or if they are triggered all by one sensor.
