Question about 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i SE Sedan

1 Answer

Hello, My wife's 2007 Subaru Legacy's check engine light came on at 20,000 miles. Autozone said that the code was intake valve control solenoid bank one.The dealer provided the repair and wanted to sell us an oil change blaming the oil for the need to repair. We change the oil meticulously per the book but the dealer say's we should be changing the oil closer to 3,000 miles. Who is right and can the oil wreck the solenoid?? Thanks very much, Tom

Quest code p1136


P1136 NISSAN - Intake Valve Timing Control Solenoid Valve Circuit Bank 2
Possible causes- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 2 circuit is open or shorted.
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 2 circuit connectors
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 2 Tech notes Since the Intake valve timing control solenoid valve uses oil flow to control timing, dirty oil can cause the valve to stuck open or close. Before replacing the valve, change engine oil and filter and reset engine code.

I have a 2003 a4/b6 1.8 turbo and the engine light is on. The DTC codes says random misfire, misfire on cylinder #2 and #3 also, Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor Regulation: Bank 1: System too Lean : P1111. Any...


If you can supply me with all the codes your vehicle is showing, I can assist you. As far as the P1111 DTC goes I have listed the info below with some possible solutions.

P1111- Intake Valve Timing Control Solenoid Valve Circuit Bank 1

Intake valve timing control solenoid valve is activated by ON/OFF pulse duty (ratio) signals from the ECM. 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. The code is triggered when an improper voltage is sent to the ECM through intake valve timing control solenoid valve. Since the Intake valve timing control solenoid valve uses oil flow to control timing, dirty oil can cause the valve to stuck open or close. Before replacing the valve, change engine oil and filter and reset engine code.

Possible Causes:
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 1 circuit is open or shorted.
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 1 circuit connectors
- Intake valve timing control solenoid valve bank 1
- Dirty Oil

Possible Solutions:
- Change Oil
- Replace Intake valve timing control solenoid valve

2005 Neon engine light came on and stays on. Car drives okay. Has around 34,000 miles. No other problems


Take it to Autozone or Advanced auto and get an engine diagnostic and ask them to printout the results. Most times it's a sensor.
