Fixed. No more error code for that... Now I'm getting...


P1518
P1381
P1383

First one I'm going to try the fix of cleaning the Contact.

The other two... Wtf how can my cam be advanced and retarded at the same time? Im not really feeling tearing this top end apart at this time. Any chance this is just a fluke? Im going to try to reset the comp and see if it works. If not... Ant suggestions?

Thought i would post a pic of my cam gears. Im fairly sure they have deleted the vct. "Did some research into these gears". Is there a sensor I shod check into cleaning? The car had this done when I bought it and popped the codes only after I fixed the downstream o2.. If that helps at all and any help or advice " since I know little about this car " helpss greatly 🍻

Your car has VCT deleted, so unless it is tuned out too, it is going to throw those codes. You'll need a custom tune to fix, or re-install VCT.

No problem man! And I THINK yes. I say that because any one of those codes will cause a huge loss of power/limp mode. BUT, I don't know if the ECU does that by not advancing intake timing at all, which is the state you're in permanently.
