Check Engine Light Code P0011 Intake Cam Position Timing Over Advanced - Bank 1 Description: How does a P0011 code trigger the check engine light? This code will trigger the check engine light under the following condition: The comprehensive component monitor, referred to as the CCM, monitors the Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) position for over-advanced cam timing. If the cam timing exceeds a maximum calibrated limit or is stuck in an advanced position, the check engine light will come on and set this trouble code. Possible Causes: Incorrect camshaft timing VCT solenoid valve stuck open or continuous oil flow to piston chamber Camshaft advance mechanism binding, or faulty VCT unit Diagnostic Help: This check engine light code is caused by a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Possible symptoms may include rough idle, stall or hard start. Refer to manufacturer specific component tests for the VCT unit.
