Question about Cars & Trucks

Vectra 1.8 vvt engine 58 reg

After changing the timing belt the emegency electronics light comes on after 5 starts. left overnight the same sequence starts again (5 starts and the light comes on for the rest of the day) Checked the belt and timing again and found no problem, reset the fault light and started the car 4/5 times and the light came on again. I can reset the fault light by switching the ignition off and back on again as the car is being driven (2/3 mph is enough). Car runs ok, petrol consumption ok @ 40mpg. Any ideas, we are all stumped.

One question, have you replaced the ECTS (Electronic Cooling Temperature Sensor)? These cause no end of different seemingly unrelated problems on Saturns. Peice is about ten bucks and is an easy install. Just search on youtube for a how-to video. Even if that's not the problem it is reccommended to replace this peice just the same as they ALL end up going bad at some point.

If that's not a fix, start pulling plugs. Check to see if they're correctly gapped and if they have any damage/corrosion. If you're running Platinum plugs, immediatly change to a copper plug as Platinums have no place in these motors. Most people have the best luck with NGK copper.

Check to make sure that your plug wires haven't been crossed. This sounds like a plug or wire issue most likely so it has to be in that family, if the plugs are good, wires good and not crossed, sensors are fine, then time to replace your coil packs. If you've replaced everything up to the coil packs then that is most likely the cause of your dillema.

Timing belt is a bit stretched. Time to have it replaced. Toyota has to be dead on the money, when it comes to the timing marks. I done several of them and you have to add extra pressure to the belt tensioner to make them run right.

my guess, those DTCs off a cheap scan tool>? why not post source and real codes, no lie P0301 is real. but off what?

real engine: Name.

VVT-i variant??? got VVT? IF ONE SIDE FAILS, misfire there. if cam retarded. if bad, can be 14deg retarded, (huge)

see cam action here.

2003 Tundra.

if using a full real scan tool that sees all toyota extended DTCs , you might see VVT errors, $20 tools and lame autozoned , blind .

there are 4 sensors there, id bet there are codes you missed!



P0301,3,5, and 7, DTC, ONLY?

bad coil packs? no.



thats the whole left bank, bad.

RF 2-4-6-8

LF 1-3-5-7

so, VVT bad on left bank or coil pack ,

yours has 8 COP coils, so its not 4 bad COPS.

a real mech sees all this in 1 second , online, impossible

nor country. sold.\'



could the timing belt slip only on one side

did you do timing belt service, on time, if not, bingo.



misfire is

bad compression (vvt?)

bad spark , no, not all 4

bad fueling, but there is only 1 maf/map, and one full injection rate there so not fuel mix.related.



here is a tool (most AZ stores clueless)

that reads the enhanced DTC of Toyotas

using a 1996 tool , misses the boat.

but id bet your VVT is bad. left bank.

1349 VVT frozen, means it can change it ,but how could it if it bounces. bank 1

here is my guess , your engine is????
2.5,3.0,3.3,3.4,4.0lilter engines,

new belt ,why old one snapped or shredded? or worse slipped?
my guess, bad belt setup, not timed right. or bad tensioner. bad idlers, or
or bad VVT parts, or bent head valves.

the V6 may be interference, and TOY dont say, but Gates lists most 96 and newer as Interference...engines.
i will assume it is (this is 1st deal with me, as im ,FIRST do no HARM"
and these engines , what do i do?
i do a leakdown test, just after the belt is replaced and tensioned, turning engine by hand.
if the leak down test FAILS the belt snapped and the valves did hit.
this i do everytime, it takes me, what 30 more minutes?
this act prevents further damage to head and pistons and rod bearing.
the damage can cascade fast to needing a new engine. now..
IMO, good luck.

P0011 Emgine code on 2007 Kia Optima


Have you had a timeing belt done? The code refers to the VVT (Variable Valve Timeing) or VCT (Variable Cam Timeing) Same thing. It may need a cam sensor replaced or a problem with the VVT control solinoid This can happen if the VVT solinoid has been unbolted for some reason. The computer of the car may just need to be re set if your lucky

DTC P1346 toyota


Hi there:

This trouble code is described in the repair manual as a problem with the VVT (variable valve timing) bank 1, this is the cylinder head closest to the firewall. There is a deviation between the crank position sensor and the vvt sensor on the camshaft, I would suggest rechecking the belt timing again, especially on the bank 1 side, make sure that all the electrical connectors are plugged in for the cam and crank sensors.





Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Code 1346 on 2002 toyota sienna


P1346 is the code for:
VVT Sensor /Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/ Performance Problem (Bank 1)
If the code came on just after the timing belt replacement more than likely the sensor was damged in some way during the work. The sensor is located in the same area the mechanic was working in while changeing the timing belt. You should have this checked right away. A faulty cam sensor can also lead to the vehicle not starting.
