3.5l. What are the probable causes of DTC P0011?


According to the error code list (see the link below) it is an over advanced cam shaft timing. It well may be a mechanical fault as opposed to an electrical fault. Read about it here:

Engine codes p0011 & P0034 on my 2001 VW passat I replaced the camshaft positioning sensor and not did not fix the problem can anyone help?


Well code 11 means the computer thinks the cam timing is too far advanced, which could be a timing belt issue.
Code 34 is supposed to be a problem with the turbo if your car has one.
Trouble codes seldom mean a sensor has failed.

Both codes involve a problem with the right side cam timing.
The cam sensor signal is not aligned with the crank sensor.
The sensors would need to be checked.

P0011


code p0011 refers to camshaft position(CMP) intake/left/front, bank-timing over advanced/system performance causes ---valve timing---engine mechanical fault--CMP actuator--- wiring I would be taking it to a dealer service department as if it is the cam actuator it will be part of the cam shaft and will require specialist knowledge for repair or replacement.. Also it may be covered by a recall notice or covered by warranty.

P0011 Emgine code on 2007 Kia Optima


Have you had a timeing belt done? The code refers to the VVT (Variable Valve Timeing) or VCT (Variable Cam Timeing) Same thing. It may need a cam sensor replaced or a problem with the VVT control solinoid This can happen if the VVT solinoid has been unbolted for some reason. The computer of the car may just need to be re set if your lucky

Identified as P0011


P0011 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)

What does that mean?
A code P0011 refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module, also called an ECM). That consists of a few different components but the P0011 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is above a set limit (over-advanced), the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft.

Potential Symptoms:
Most likely a P0011 DTC will result in one of the following: hard starting, poor idle, and/or stalling. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.

Causes:
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)

Possible Solutions:
This DTC code is a result of a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.

Other related DTCs: P0010 - P0011 - P0012 - P0020 - P0021 - P0022

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Check engine lights is p0011 how do I fix this problem


I looked up the code you posted, and came back as the camshaft position sensor, which is behind the timing belt cover, if it is the right model.
