After some research I found an answer on how the system works I will copy and paste it for you. It's sounds like an oil psi problem. The oil psi needs to maintain 42 psi at start up and can not drop below 31 psi. This could be caused by a number of things. Are you using the correct oil weight at the proper oil level and using a good quality filter.

The rest will be in the post from the website. If you have an engine monitor use it to get readings to see where your oil psi is at.

P1524 OIL PRESSURE OUT OF RANGE CAMSHAFT ADVANCE/RETARD DISABLED

Theory of Operation

For the VCT to enable, the oil pressure has to be approximately 42 psi. For the VCT to remain enabled the engine oil pressure can not drop below 31psi.

When Monitored: Engine running. RPM greater than or equal to 1100. Oil temperature less than or equal to 100 degrees c 212 degrees F
Set Condition: The engine oil pressure never reaches the calibrated specification to allow the VCT activation. One trip fault.

Possible Causes

ENGINE OIL ENGINE MECHANICAL G6 engine OIL PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORTED TO VOLTAGE G6 engine OIL PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND G6 engine OIL PRESSURE SENSOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT HIGH RESISTANCE F855 5 VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT SHORTED TO GROUND F855 5 VOLT SUPPLY CIRCUIT HIGH RESISTANCE K900SENSOR GROUND CIRCUIT HIGH RESISTANCE ENGINE OIL PRESSURE SENSOR POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE PCM

P1524 code still displayed after I changed out ETC throttle body/sensor. Doesn't seem to any change in performance except maybe excessive fuel consumption although its a 5,7 and a gas guzzler.

My car has code PO171 WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


This means your engine is running too lean on the fuel-air ratio. Get this fixed as it can damage the engine after a while.

Possible causes are



• Air intake leak (hose loose)
• Fuel line pressure low
• Injector blockage
• Heated oxygen sensor malfunction
• Mass air flow meter fault
• Engine coolant temp. sensor failed

The most likely cause is the oxygen sensor

Hi...Code P1281 means the engine is staying cold too long - check your thermostat. It is possible your thermostat is stuck in the open position.

This realy sounds like a fuel problem filter or the pump you are getting to many codes at once and all of these sensor can,t be going bad at the same time Looking at the random misfire and the fuel trim issues map and air charge all at the same time is unlikely The olny other thing you may wan,t to check is the crankshaft pisition sensor but aren,t getting that code so im thinking fuel delevery good luck

Codes


actually the knock sensor has nothing to do with the idler
but yes you are right the code # 5 means knock sensor problem
most of times knock sensor is located on either side of engine block but if you don't know how it looks like just buy a new sensor and compair it with the one on your car, if you are planing to instal new sensor is ok but if codes keeps coming on then it migh be the circuit from sensor to computer or the computer it self, but again i don't belive it has nothing to do with idle problem. hope and this help
