Could be one of three things:

If the check engine light is coming on intermittently, it could be your gas. You should be using 91+ Octane Gasoline (put some octane boost to see if it smoothes out, it's about $4.00). You should be putting in Chevron/Shell/76 gasoline, not the ARCO/AM-PM gasoline. The top tier gas has additional cleaners.

Could be a bad coil not triggering one of the spark plugs.

Could be the camshaft position sensors.

Code p1112 is up on a bmw 525i what do i look for


First, find the sensor. Bottom passenger side of radiator I believe. If you're lazy, just change the sensor and make sure the connector is good and tight. If not, do resistance checks on the disconnected sensor and voltage on the connected sensor, both cold and hot. The results will tell you the problem.

If the connector is loose or broken, you can get one with pigtails at your local auto parts store. Chop the old one off, splice the new one in, close up surgery, and connect.

What are the codes P0011 on a 2005 VW passat?


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.

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.



A P0011 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
Incorrect camshaft timingWiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid systemContinuous oil flow to VCT piston chamberFailed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)


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.

Hope helps.

I have a 2005 Kia Spectra. The check engine light has been on and i got it checked. What does engine code Po0011 mean?


Hi Po0011 is not a valid code but if you meant P0011 then it refers to an over advanced cam timing fault.

Hi i have BMW 525i 2004 from time to time when


It is very important that the engine not overheat! The head can crack and this would be very bad.
I think your car is too new to need a new radiator.
Make sure the coolant level is correct.
Check the thermostat housing for leaks.
When the engine is hot, check if the fan clutch is locked up and actually driving the fan. Turn the engine off and grab the fan and try to turn it. It should turn stiffly. If it spins freely the fan clutch is dead.
It is possible that the water pump impeller has failed, especially if it is a plastic one.
