Did you initialize the list A136164 to be a list at least n long first?
(Debug) In[14]:= A136164=ConstantArray[0,60]
With[{n=60},
Table[If[CoprimeQ[Divisors[n][[j]],Divisors[n][[j-1]]]||CoprimeQ
[Divisors[n][[j]],Divisors[n][[j+1]]],A136164[[n]]=A136164[[n]]+1,],
{j,3,Length[Divisors[n]]-2}]];
A136164
(Debug) Out[14]=
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0}
(Debug) Out[16]=
{0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,4}
There seem to be other problems with your algorithm though, it only
finds 4 coprime neighbors.
