Question about 2007 Kia Optima
I have a possible major issue My 2006.5/2007 Kia Optima 2.4l 4 cyl automatic with almost 103,000 miles is throwing up the following... Code# P0011 (Camshaft Timing over Advanced.) I believe. The Check engine light on -Yes I have reset the code once so it is not the computer. -Yes I Checked My Oil In-fact I just Did an Oil Change With A Synthetic blend Today. the light is still lit the oil is full so my 2 simple fixs are out the window. -It has A timing chain not a belt therefor the belt is not stretching I guess what i'm asking you is what other simple fixes can I try If nothing else? And Please Tell Me Where I Can Find any Sensor I need To Replace I'm trying to eliminate EVERY POSSIBILITY outside of the inner motor before having to pay someone to rip it apart and repair something inside.
If the engine makes rattling noise too then your timing chain tensioner may need to be checked. Slacked chain will alter camshaft timing. Check timing marks to confirm that the chain has not jumped one or two sprocket teeth.

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

if you have never done one take it to a shop because if you have the timing off a little you take a chance of bending valves then you would need a new head

replace your gas cap and clear codes, then wait and see if light comes back on, if it does you have a more serious problem like a fuel tank leak or a defective fuel tank pressure sensor.
