Fault code indicates a faulty signal from the camshaft reset valve. First thing to check is oil level. If your oil level is too low this code will set since the cvvt uses oil pressure to control timing. If oil level is correct, while it has being running check the oil for air bubbles. If you have air bubbles that indicates an internal oil leak and pressure will drop causing the faulty signal. If that is the case, the oil pump pick up tube seals need to be replaced. If that is ok, remove the timing belt covers and rotate engine by hand to try and line up your marks. If cam and crank marks line up you are down to either having a bad reset valve or a bad cvvt hub? The cheapest part would be the reset valve. Also get a new gasket as well and change the oil. The reset valve gasket has a screen built to it now to catch any particles in the oil and jamming up the reset valve. If your timing is off, inspect further to see what caused the belt to jump? You may just need a new belt with tensioner? Hope this helps and good luck.
