What Does P0011 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P0011 is defined as a "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System

    Newer vehicles use a variable timing system to adjust the timing of the intake and exhaust valves in an effort to increase fuel efficiency and performance. The engine control module (PCM) uses a Camshaft Position Actuator to adjust the camshaft accordingly. If the Camshaft does not respond as the PCM requests, the PCM will set code P0011.

    P0011 Symptoms

    • Decreased engine performance
    • Increased fuel consumption

    Common Problems That Trigger the P0011 Code

    • Camshaft variable timing solenoid failure
    • Engine oil level is too low
    • The engine is not timing correctly
    • The engine oil does not meet the manufacturer's requirements
    • Variable valve timing actuator failure
    • Worn timing chain
