If it is the cam phaser, the solenoid is working and my scan tool shows that it is not advancing. Because of the code p1345, the PCM stops cam phasing when it sets the code. However, I am interested to see what kind of sludge is in and around the physical advancer. Sludge? The solenoid is good.
Unless I have overlooked a check that can be done without removing at least the valve cover and inspecting and then possibly going farther to remove timing cover and checking timing, I feel like thats I my next move.
Advancing solenoid, cam and crank sensors are good. Have I missed an easy test?
