2012 Toyota Corolla Repair Question
P0011 code and how to fix
This is a new vehicle, get the dealer to sweat over it.
I can't i work at a auto shop repairing crashed cars with salvaged titles
Have you checked the oil level, pressure and condition?
This fault is usually caused by the VVTi system not functioning correctly when the camshaft is not retarding or advancing its timing and seldom a sensor fault.
Were any repairs done on the engine?
None yet except a front main seal replacement it was leaking pretty bad the chain feels loose
You need to check the oil level and pressure. If necessary, replace the oil and run engine for a while to get the mechanical parts working correctly first.
Check to see if the oil is sludged.
Oil is like new
Test the pressure and ensure it is getting to the top. Make sure the oil filter is not damaged. The front seal leaking could indicate a problem there at the housing.
I pulled the seal off again and the chain on the right side seems loose is that normal?
If you turn the crankshaft counterclockwise, it can result in that. Turn crankshaft clockwise and get # 1 cylinder to TDC on compression stroke and note if tension builds up.
Okay yea tension is fine now could the sensor be bad?
