This code leads to the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. Here are some possible causes for this code:
Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear, misalignment of timing belt/chain, tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken, tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken, bad crank sensor, bad cam sensor, damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor, or timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
Check both crank and cam sensors for damage. Also, check for wiring issues at both points. Remove the crankshaft harmonic balancer and check the tone ring to make sure it is tight and not damaged as well as making sure the shear key hasn't been damaged causing a misalignmeent. If everything checks good, then you will need to check the timing belt to see if it is stretched or the tensionier is allowing excessive play. Regardless, the problem is due to the crank and cam sensors not working together. That is causing the power loss.
