I have a 2002 gmc sonoma 4.3 v6 45000 miles. Turns over but won't start. Changed camshaft position sensor and crankshaft sensor. Can't afford to take to a shop.


Is it getting gas to the cylinders , is there spark at the spark plugs ! You should check thing's out before replacing parts an hoping it fix's the problem .You need to find out what is missing ,fuel ,ignition or an engine problem ! Cranking No Start Real Time Diagnosis Ford Focus

Code p0011


http://www.datsc.com/tabid/122/OBD-Error-Code/P0011/Diagnostics/Mercedes-Benz/Default.aspx
"..........OBD Code P0011refers to
A code P0011 refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module, also called an ECM). That consists of a few different components but the P0011 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is above a set limit (over-advanced), the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft.

SymptomsPossible sumptoms of OBD code P0011
Most likely a P0011 DTC will result in one of the following: hard starting, poor idle, and/or stalling. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.

CausesPossible causes of OBD code P0011
A P0011 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following: Incorrect camshaft timing Wiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid system Continuous oil flow to VCT piston chamber Failed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)

Possible SolutionsThis DTC code is a result of a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.

hard starting
poor idle and/or
stalling

There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.
Causes

A P0012 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:

Incorrect camshaft timing
Wiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid system
Continuous oil flow to VCT piston chamber
Failed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)

Possible Solutions

The main thing to check is to verify the operation of the VCT solenoid. You're looking for a sticking or stuck VCt solenoid valve caused by contamination.

    P0012 Intake camshaft position timing over retarded bank one Is this a easy fix


    Code P0012 - Variable Camshaft Timing Over Retarded - Bank 1

    How does a P0012 code trigger the check engine light? This code will trigger the check engine light under the following condition:
    * The comprehensive component monitor, referred to as the CCM, monitors the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) position for over-retarded cam timing. If the cam timing exceeds a maximum calibrated limit or is stuck in a retarded position, the check engine light will come on and set this trouble code.

    Possible Causes:
    Incorrect camshaft timing
    VCT solenoid valve stuck open or continuous oil flow to piston chamber
    Camshaft advance mechanism binding, or faulty VCT unit

    Diagnostic Help:
    This check engine light code is caused by a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Possible symptoms may include rough idle, stall or hard start. Refer to manufacturer specific component tests for the VCT unit. You may also use the "Get Help" link if you need specifications or have any other related questions. Remember to refer to an appropriate manual for specific instructions.

    Other details mentioned a P0012 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
    * Incorrect camshaft timing
    * Wiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid system
    * Continuous oil flow to VCT piston chamber
    * Failed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)

    Possible Solutions:
    The main thing to check is to verify the operation of the VCT solenoid. You're looking for a sticking or stuck VCt solenoid valve caused by contamination. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.
