98 Honda Civic in limp mode won't pass 3500 rpm

Hello everyone, my 1998 honda civic has been in limp mode and won't pass 3500 rpm. It's throwing the code p0335 which is the crankshaft position sensor, I brought it to a mechanic and we changed the crankshaft position sensor with a duralast brand as well as the timing belt, but it's still stuck in limp mode and still throwing the code p0335

I also tried replacing the ecu and still no luck.

About 2 months ago I changed the distributor because it was misfiring, but after I changed the distributor the misfiring stopped and then my car became limp mode.

Car specs:
1998 Honda civic Dx
Automatic
d16y

Not sure what I should do next, please help. Thanks

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Your 'mechanic' has no real service information? The sensor by the crank pulley is not CKP.

You all need to understand that 3 different sensors are inside the distributor, one of those is CKP.

but after I changed the distributor the misfiring stopped and then my car became limp mode.
So limp mode and P0335 happened as soon as the distributor was replaced?
You don't see a connection here?


FWIW aftermarket distributors are crap.

I was thinking about that it had to do with after replacing the distributor, but since it was throwing a p0335 code I wasn't too sure. I'll take it back to the shop and tell him about it.
