2006 2.4l put in new cam sensor now car will start then stall. need help it ran before but was rough in idle and had a p0011 code.

This is what I found about the P0011 code.

This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) indicates that the timing of the intake camshaft is over-advanced. If you have a V6, it'll be the rear bank intake camshaft. Whether the repair is expensive, and how expensive it is will depend on the cause. Of course, you're still within the warranty period, so anything not related to maintenance should be repaired free of charge by Hyundai. Make sure to get the car to the dealer before it reaches 60,000 miles.

The first thing to check is the oil level. The variable valve timing operates off oil pressure, so if your oil level gets too low, it won't be able to operate properly. In your case, I doubt the oil level is low enough to cause an issue, since that would tend to make the camshaft timing retarded rather than advanced.

Next, check for sludging. Simply remove the oil cap and look inside. If you see a significant amount of sludge, this can be an indication that the oil passages to the camshaft actuator are clogged. If you've been changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, I expect you won't find any.

If you find no problems with any of the above, the problem is likely with the oil control valve that regulates oil pressure to the actuator assembly on the camshaft. These will sometimes stick, causing oil pressure to always or never be applied to the actuator.

I just had my oil changed last week at Superlube and now my engine light is on and give code P0011 for my 2007 Hyundai Sonata, does anyone know if the oil change could have caused this?

Inspect your oil control valve, disconnect it and read the ohms resistance, specs 6.9-7.9. If is not in specs replace it. it is possible oil change caused it, TIP: after market filter will cause engine damage,

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)

Getting P0011 code on Hyundai Sonata. Can anyone tell me what it means?

more than likely you have a bad oil control valve if in fact you have an 06 sonata. They are chain driven engines... You can ohm out the valve and get a good reading even when the valve is bad. Pull it out and check to see if it is clogged, if it is thats more likely your problem. If it is clean, go ahead and replace the valve. Hyundai calls them the oil control valve (OCV) and usually located on the head close the the variable valve sprocket.
