SOURCE: How do you get to,

VTC selonoid was on the back of the cylnder head right by the PCV valve. The VTC solenoid valve is part of the Valve Timing Control System. The purpose of the system is to achieve optimum valve timing, thus improving engine performance.

The system will vary the intake valve timing according to engine speed, and other inputs received from the coolant temperature and throttle position sensors. The ECM controls the position of the intake camshaft, by controlling the oil pressure to the intake camshaft pulley hub. When the ECM energizes the solenoid, oil pressure is supplied to the pulley hub, changing the position of the hub, thereby advancing the intake valve timing.

1 Remove the VTC valve from the vehicle.

2 Using a fused jumper wire, apply battery voltage to terminal 1, and ground to terminal 2.

3 If the valve is functioning correctly, the plunger shaft in the valve should be extended.

4 If the plunger is not extended, replace the VTC solenoid.



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


1 Disconnect the wiring harness connector from the VTC valve.

2 Using a suitable wrench, remove the VTC from the cylinder head.

To install:

1 Install the VTC in to the cylinder head, by first hand tightening, then using a wrench.

2 Plug the wire harness connector into the VTC valve

Here is the definition for code 11.

P0011 NISSAN Description
Problem with the intake valve timing control solenoid valve.
This mechanism hydraulically controls cam phases continuously with the fixed operating angle of the intake valve.

The ECM receives signals such as crankshaft position, camshaft position, engine speed, and engine coolant temperature. Then, the ECM sends ON/OFF pulse duty signals to the intake valve timing control solenoid valve depending on driving status. This makes it possible to control the shut/open timing of the intake valve to increase engine torque in low/mid speed range and output in high-speed range.

The intake valve timing control solenoid valve changes the oil amount and direction of flow through intake valve timing control unit or stops oil flow. The longer pulse width advances valve angle. The shorter pulse width retards valve angle. When ON and OFF pulse widths become equal, the solenoid valve stops oil pressure flow to fix the intake valve angle at the control position.
Could be a problem with the control valve, oil flow to the valve, or one of the cam or crank sensors.

Check engine light on, the codes are po011 and po021


Check 15A fuses, #58 and #59,
- second possibility is stuck relay, check, swap place with same color relay [E32]
- ctrl solenoid valve resistance 1 and 2: about 7ohms at 20?°C (68?°F)

P0011 (Bank 1); P0021 (Bank 2)
- Intake valve timing control performance, There is a gap between angle of target and
phase-control angle degree.
Causes:
- Harness or connectors (Intake valve timing control solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted.)
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve
- Crankshaft position sensor (POS)
- Camshaft position sensor (PHASE)
- Accumulation of debris to the signal pick-up portion of the camshaft

I'd add one possibility to the list: worn mech VTC parts if over 150k... possible if history contains lubrication problems. (Mech repair will be costly; i'd try locking the system in place.)
All electronics checkups start from voltage checks, at batt, at ECU. Then clean connectors, next test individual sensor inputs: see link p.14 below. Dig more/all info via 'Favorite Links', see link page below - top left corner:

P0011 WHAT DOES THIS CODE MEAN?


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

Identified as P0011


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

What does that mean?
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.

Causes:
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 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.

Other related DTCs: P0010 - P0011 - P0012 - P0020 - P0021 - P0022

Hope helps (remember rated this).
