Q: The Check Engine Light came on after washing my Durango

asked by on

I ran my Durango through an automatic car wash and my car stalled during mid wash. It eventually started back up but now the check engine light is on and sometimes it flashes. I got about 10 miles down the road and all of a sudden it was like I was in low gear. That only happened once. I hooked up a code reader and got the codes P0300, P0315, and P0335. I looked up the codes online and the crankshaft position sensor is mentioned along with misfires. My Durango runs fine and I really don't notice anything wrong. Just looking for some advice from an expert. Thanks
