P0011 (Bank 1)
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

DTC P0011 IVT CONTROL
The cam phases are continually controlled by this mechanism. The ECM receives signals then sends the ON/OFF pulse duty signals
to the intake valve timing control solenoid valve, depending on driving status, making it possible to control the shut/open timing.


When a malfunction is detected the ECM goes into fail safe mode.

During confirmation procedure take care to drive at a safe speed.

First perform trouble diagnosis for DTC P1111 if it is displayed with DTC P0011

Always switch off ignition and wait for 10 seconds before going onto the next DTC confirmation procedure test.

When using Consult-II, see that the battery voltage is between 10 & 16.

Switch on ignition
With consult-II select data monitor mode
Hold for at least 20 seconds.
If 1st trip DTC is detected proceed to Diagnostic Procedure

With GST follow the same procedure.

    On any 1996-2009 vehicle with variable valve timing, if the MIL is on
    with any of the following DTCs stored: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024,
    P1110 or P1135, do not replace the variable valve timing solenoid valve
    or the sprocket(s) without performing the complete diagnosis indicated
    in the EC section of the service manual.



    Note: The engine may also have camshaft sprocket rattle noise and/or other engine noise.



    Action:

    The first steps in the complete diagnosis are to make sure the:



    • Engine oil is at the operating level; add oil if needed. Refer to the service manual for low oil level diagnoses, if needed.


    • Oil pressure is normal when measured with a gauge at the pressure
    switch port. Refer to the service manual for low oil pressure
    diagnoses, if needed.

    Also Some times if the oil is low you will get this code!!!!!

P0011 and P0300 codes on 3.5 altima. Car shakes on idle and low RPM. Changed the cam shaft sensor and the problem persists. What more can I do?


Try this take the variable cam timing solenoid out from bank 1 and clean and make sure its not stuck or replace it with a new one and this should fix your problem.

2002 altima codes 1212 and 0011 please help


DTC P1212 - Mass Air Flow Circuit Intermittent Low
DTC 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)

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.

You got two codes for Timing Over
Advanced

P0011-Bank 1
P0021-Bank 2

I'am assuming you know that

Cams moved, I would think,
when you did tensioners !!

Or , you have to reset the sensors,

P0011 eng code


P0011 Intake Valve Timing Control

Aug 16, 2010 | 2002 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

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).

A p0011 code and camshaft sensor replacement did not cure problem


well i know on the v6 that is true you replaced all of them. Not sure of 4 cyl but seems like it should be the same. Also I know on the v6 the variable valve timing set up sometimes did some weird failures triggering a cam sensor code. It could be anything from sludgy oil hanging up in the vvt hub or clogged passages or bad solenoids. but before going into all that(well besides maybe an oil change) I would go for the crank sensor.
