Im getting codes P0011 and P0014 on my 2011 kia serento. Is mean my camshaft sensor is bad? if so where is it?


These codes have to do with the CVVT(continuously variable valve timing)solenoid. I guess it is a 2.4 liter engine, the solenoid is located right above the power steering pump at the #1 cylinder in the cylinder head. If it is the 3.5 liter it is located on top of each cylinder and is accessed after the intake plenum is removed. Either way, the solenoid controls valve timing of the exhaust cam via the solenoid which uses oil pressure to advance or retard the timing. The first step is to verify proper weight of oil and level. If the engine is over due for service, get it done. If the oil is not an issue, then the solenoid is becoming sluggish in advancing or retarding the camshaft and should be replaced.

P2647 on Honda accord 2003 what is and where is located in the engine?


The code is for the VTEC(variable timed exhaust camshaft) oil pressure solenoid. If it is a 4 cylinder engine, the solenoid is located on the back of the cylinder head near the fuel injector rail. Most of the time you can simply clean the screen on the solenoid to cure the problem. Also, too heavy weight of oil can cause the system to malfunction. Make sure to use a 5w30 engine oil,Honda prefers Castrol.

Variable cam timing adjustment sensor how much does it cost and how long does it take to replace


camshaft actuator solenoid cost about $100.00 the camshaft actuator solenoid located on upper front part of the timing chain cover front of the camshaft. you have to remove top engine cover then remove air intake duct and air filter housing then remove engine mount strut bracket.

Exhaust cam position actuator location?


I ASSUME that this has the 2.4L ecotech 4 cylinder engine?? If so the vct solenoids (variable cam timing) are mounted between the intake and exhaust cams through holes in the valve cover near the timing chain end of the engine (front). The exhaust vct solenoid will be on the exhaust side of the cylinder head.

Where is vct solenoid


Hi there: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.


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)



On Ford, the VCT solenoid is located at top of cylinder head underneath the valve cover and goes around one camshaft. You will need to remove the valve cover, the timing cover, then remove the timing belt, the camshaft sprockets, and finally the camshafts to remove the vct solenoid as it goes around the camshaft. You can use 2001-2003 models with same engine.



VCT or Variable Cam Timing solenoid is a device used in modern engines to change camshaft position timing in relevance to engine speed and engine timing allowing the engine to produce more horsepower without adding excessive overlap to the camshaft design.


The way the VCT Solenoid works is as follows:
The VCT solenoid works with oil pressure, it receives a signal from the ECM when the camshaft needs to be rotated either in the advanced mode or ******** mode depending on engine load and speed.The VCT solenoid is able to accomplish that by altering the oil flow in the passages that lead to the cam phaser(s), there are passages to advance the valve timing ( open the valves earlier), and passages that direct the oil to ****** the valve timing ( open them later)

The purpose of the VCT or Variable Cam Timing system is to allow the engine to move larger volumes of air in and out of the cylinders to generate maximum horsepower.
Vehicles with DOHC ( Dual Overhead Cam ) engines usually have two VCT solenoids mounted in each cylinder head, one for each camshaft, allowing the Engine Control Computer to activate each VCT timing mechanism in each Camshaft separately.
NOTE: The Cam phaser is mounted on the front of the camshaft(s) it is driven by the engine's timing chain or timing belt depending on the engine's design.



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.

Fault code p1384 honda crv


P1384 VTC solenoid failure,This control variable valve timing,when this fails VTC is disabled and your valve timing is fixed at fully ****** postion. This is located at the right side of the engine below cam timing gears3_20_2012_8_23_24_am.jpg

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.

Our 1993 ford probe gives us error code 46 which says it is a variable resonance induction system solenoid where is this located


THERE ARE TWO SOLENOIDS FOR THE VRIS SYSTEM.THEY ARE BOTH LOCATED ON THE INTAKE NEXT TO THE FIREWALL.THERE IS A THIRD SOLENOID ON THE SAME BRACKET HOLDING THE VRIS SOLENOIDS AND IT CONTROLS THE EGR VALVE.THE 2 VRIS SOLENOIDS ARE SIDE BY SIDE.
