Hi,The P0335 is a pretty rock solid fault... it basically sets any time there is either a circuit anomaly on the crank sensor or the computer sees the camshaft turning but not the crank shaft. Having a computer failure is extremely unlikely... like the last thing you would expect here. When the crank sensor was replaced was a genuine Mitsubishi sensor (ordered from a dealership) used, or was it sourced from a third party store? This is extremely important, because third party crank sensors do not work reliably on these cars.
