Question about Nissan Altima
I've changed both camshafts and the crankshaft. I've also replace the IVT solenoid. My oil level is fine, and my timing chain is in phase[according to nissan]. I just bought this car a year ago, and I'm hoping it can be fixed. I've already spent 1600 dollars on it, and its becoming way too expensive to fix. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated
The codes p0011 and p0012 both refer to camshaft (CMP) intake left front bank 1 timing over advanced / system performance-- among others -- camshaft timing (valve timing). I would have the valve timing rechecked as it appears that it is not right Probably a tooth out on both cam shafts.

befor in the ealier models of accords they use to be both the cam and crank sensors in the distibutor but they separated them !!!So no they are not together on your car tha cam sensor is in the distributor and the crank sensor is in front of engine or in the lower timing belt cover if it is in the timing cover you can see a wire going dow the timing cover way to the bottom on the rear side off it
hope it will help you if you have any question just wright back !!!!

No recall information on that situation at this time. if you suspect this, you can contact the dealer and provide your vin and they can look up a new or non released recall for your vehicle. If this recall has just been released, it will take some time to circulate though the recall system. at this time, nothing is showing up on our systems on a recall for the crank and cam sensors.

SOURCE: where crank shaft and camshaft?
The camshaft position sensor is located on the timing cover, near the top of the motor. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the same timing cover near the crankshaft. Just a side note, more than likely the crankshaft position is your issue and it's under a recall from Nissan and they will replace it for free.

There should be plated links on those chains too. There is an index dot in both cams on each head that set at the twelve o'clock position.

OK check the CMP sensor connector for cleanliness, sometimes oil can get in and disrupt the signal transmission to the ECU. Check the wire loom continuity all the way back from the CMP to the ECU. If the error code persists remove the cam sensor, clean its tip of any debris and refit.
