How do you fix stuck opn timing valvecontrol solenoid?


You usually can't fix them, unless you remove the solenoid from the end of the CAM shaft. They VVT solenoid, usually jams up because of dirty oil sludge, deposits, oil not being changed as often as it should be. Some have taken the VVT apart and fixed them, search You Tube, most either buy a new one...Pretty expensive, or take it to the dealer to have it fixed, still expensive.

How to replace a starter on 98 mustang


Start by unhooking your battery. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block. Remove the 2 wires that are attached to the starter solenoid. Then remove the starter from the vehicle, this part is kinda tricky as there is only one way that it will come out and you have to really finagle it to work it out. then install the new one in the reverse order.

I have a 2005 Toyota corolla le and I replaced the v v t solenoid and the coil packs and it still won't start the engine diagnostic s Says ignition coil a b c d primary secondary circuit


Make sure that the vvt solenoid connector and its wires are all firm and not corroded or damaged. Any one of the four igniters can be at fault but not all of the four at a time. This fault often arises when the vvti sensor connector is faulty, detached, damaged. It also happens when number 2 Ignition confirmation signal (IGF) wire or number 3 Ignition Timing (IGT) wire on any of the ignition coils is broken or disconnected at the coil connector.

E.g.r. once its on , it stays on


There should no vacuum at the EGR valve at idle. Look at the solenoid that controls the EGR valve....it could be stuck open or the solenoid is shorted open

P0010 engin light


A code P0010 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
  • Open or short in the VVT/VCT circuit
  • Open or short in the OCV / solenoid valve
  • Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
  • Carefully inspect the Bank 1 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
  • With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed

Error code p1384 and 1396


Hi there:DTC P1386 - VARIABLE CAM TIMING OVERADVANCED

Possible Causes:
- Bank 2 VVT solenoid valve to PCM PWM drive circuit fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator oil supply fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator stuck.

The biggest issues with vvts are oil supply issues. Useally debris like oil sludge in oil pickup screen, loose bearing clearances as an engine wears, and oil passages blocked/partially blocked to and in vvts. The first (i always shoot for cheapest potential likely fix) use a good engine flush(2 bottle for our higher than normal capacity engines) follow directions on bottle. Change oil and switch to a 20-50w. Leave out 1 quart and add 1 qt auto ****** atf(highly detergent, more so than engine oil and wont hurt anything) while you have overly ******** cam codes, it may be an issue of apply and blockage that keeps pressure in vvts too long when supposed to release. Most times its ******** cams( like the 1 i am doing right now....try this first and go from there, rememebr to clears codes and give time, you may have to clear codes a few times as it may continue to reset.



DTC P1396 - VVT Solenoid Malfunction - (B bank)

Check HERE a TSB about this faylkt code.




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.

P0012


P0012 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-******** (Bank 1)
OBD-II DTC Trouble Code Description

"A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-******** (Bank 1)
What does that mean?

A code P0012 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 P0012 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is over-********, the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft.
Potential Symptoms

Most likely a P0012 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.
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. 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.

EL VEHICULO TIENE PERDIDA DE POTENCIA Y EN EL SCANNER MUESTRA LOS CODIGO PO0011; PO0012


P0011 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)
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.

Potential Symptoms: 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.

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: This 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.


P0012 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Retarded (Bank 1)

Jaguar s-type pulled code p1380 now you press gas and the car dosen't want to go


P0066 = air assisted fuel injection (AAI) control circuit malfunction.
P1380 = VVT Solenoid circuit malfunction bank 1
P1385 = VVT Solenoid circuit malfunction bank 2
P0353 = IGNITION SIGNAL COIL C FAULT.
P1380 Variable cam timing solenoid A malfunction. Bank 1 cam solenoid located underneath intake manifold. The bank 1 solenoid is under the passenger side valve cover on the V8. On the V6 it's under the valve cover as well but the intake needs to be removed.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
