    Steve,did you mean the knock pins are at 6&12 oclock.
    This engine will bend a valve if it is not time right/. intake at 6 oclock and exhaust one 12 oclock? Your response is appreciated

Possible sources of fault code are as follows. The code is a fault in the VVT system (variable valve timing)

Faulty position
-camshaft belt has jumped out of place on the cogs
-defective reset valve
-mechanical fault in the Variable valve timing (VVT) unit
Faulty control
-defective camshaft position (CMP) sensor
Control too slow
-low oil pressure
-poor oil quality
-defective reset valve
-mechanical fault in the Variable valve timing (VVT) unit

Check engine light is lit and error code is identified as P1383 unidentified code


Hi.

P1383 is one of Jaguar's own codes. You can find the code even in other engines (e.g. Ford). P1383 means : Variable Cam Timing Overretarded (Bank #1).

Symptoms:Rough idle, engine stalling.

Here possible causes:

  • Cam timing improperly set.
  • Continuous oil flow to the VCT piston chamber.
  • VCT solenoid valve stuck open.
  • Camshaft advance mechanism binding (VCT unit).

  • Solution: the part in the Variable Cam Timing listed above must be tested and repaired.

    Regards.

    EL VEHICULO TIENE PERDIDA DE POTENCIA Y EN EL SCANNER MUESTRA LOS CODIGO PO0011; PO0012


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


    P0012 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Retarded (Bank 1)
    A code P0012 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 P0012 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing.

    Continuous oil flow to VCT piston chamber
    Failed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)

    Possible Solutions:
    The main thing to check is to verify the operation of the VCT solenoid. You're looking for a sticking or stuck VCt solenoid valve caused by contamination. 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 this helps. Suerte.

    remember the timing marks will align in the firing order you may have the cam 180 degrees out,, recheck your belt again, also Autozone.com usually has that information available online, if all else fails go to the dealer and get a copy of the procedure.

    Replaced head, timing belt, crank sensor, now car won't start. What do you think the problem is?


    Since I didn't put it back together, the possible causes are numerous. Tow vehicle into nearest Hyundai Service Center and pay the diagnostic fee. They will give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). This way you'll know EXACTLY what the problem is and what's required to fix it. Here's a list of possible causes: Timing belt improperly installed (out of time), valves have been bent due to this, connections to engine management sensors damaged (crank sensor), intake/exhaust cams inproperly installed, leaking valves, improperly installed head gasket, no fuel pressure, no ignition to spark plugs, etc. etc. etc.
