ok i just timed my car with the special timing tools andi got a check engine light on and it is p1381 which is to far advanced but i used the timing tools and every thing what couls have gone wrong?? i put the blanking bolt in so it lines up the crank and turned the crank intill it stoped and made sure it was top dead center i also had the flat piece of metal in the camshafts. i did get the exhaust sprocket loose but couldnt get the intake sprocked loose so just put the belt on and the teeth matched up so i dont think it would be from that. so what could have gone wrong???

Other than an over advanced camshaft, Check these symptoms
-No oil flow to the VCT piston chamber
-Low oil pressure
-VCT solenoid valve stuck closed
-Camshaft advance mechanism binding (VCT unit)
