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...
There is an advancer unit that the chain sprocket is attached to that independently alters the valve timing of the cam shaft as engine rpm's increase or decrease . On some engines it is hydraulically controlled and on others by centrifugal weights . The cam position sensor always compares with the crank position sensor as to where the cam position should be at any time and in your instance the position is being recorded as not acceptable and the light has come on to get you to do something before the condition worsens to where the pistons hit the valves . If you have the expertise and tools needed to replace this faulty advancer you could do it but otherwise I would let an accredited shop do the job. IT will require removal of the rocker cover and the chain sprocket ,then the removal of the advance unit. There should be no need to go any deeper into the engine than that unless you drop the chain of the bottom sprocket. Then the job becomes very messy.

I think your sensors are pattern parts and the readings /resistances are not the same as the original parts ,try some bosch units is my first suggestion ,
