Hi there. The code for P0336 is referring to the crankshaft position sensor loosing a signal to the computer. I recommend replacing the crankshaft position sensor and it should fix all of your problems. If you need further assistance with the engine stalling after replacing the crankshaft position sensor, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your vehicle farther.
