Check engine light is lit and error code is identified as P1383 unidentified code


P1383 is one of Jaguar's own codes. You can find the code even in other engines (e.g. Ford). P1383 means : Variable Cam Timing Overretarded (Bank #1).

Symptoms:Rough idle, engine stalling.

Here possible causes:

  • Cam timing improperly set.
  • Continuous oil flow to the VCT piston chamber.
  • VCT solenoid valve stuck open.
  • Camshaft advance mechanism binding (VCT unit).

  • Solution: the part in the Variable Cam Timing listed above must be tested and repaired.

    1998 Ford ZX2 has error code 1383 and 340. Is this the cam sensor? SWPSmith This is the Zetec engine.

    Hi Swpsmith,
    The code P0340 is for the camshaft sensor circuit. P1383 is for the variable cam timing,the actuator on the exhaust cam.
    Do you need information on diagnosing the codes? If you do,let me know what kind of test equipment you have available. Do you have a scanner that will show operating data along with codes? Or a Digital volt,ohm meter?
    I hope this helps.If you need anything else,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck
