I need Spec torque for the camshaft intake and exhaust solenoid bolts that turn the timing gears with two black sleeves. I have replaced the gasket and when we put it back together code P0017 came up saying sensor not synchronizing with engine. So we figured that we did not tighten the solenoids to specification. The photo is just an example of what I am talking about and I am not sure if I am naming the parts correctly.
Please help thank you.

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

I doubt torque is causing that code, but rather timing itself. The code indicates the crankshaft and camshaft position sensor exhaust camshaft do not correlate signals with each other. If when timing, you did not have the correct tool to lock the cams, it can cause this. Here are the directions specific to removing and replacing the timing belt. Read through them to determine if you may have missed something.

The torques you requested are listed in the directions. All attached pictures correlate with these directions.

CAMSHAFT POSITION ACTUATOR ADJUSTER REPLACEMENT
Camshaft Position Actuator Adjuster Replacement

Special Tools
* EN-6340 - Camshaft Adjuster Locking Tool
* EN-6628-A - Camshaft Locking Tool
* EN-45059 - Angle Meter

For equivalent regional tools, refer to Special Tools (See: Engine > Electrical / Mechanical Repair > Special Tools)

Removal Procedure

1. Open the hood.
2. Remove the air cleaner housing. Refer to Air Cleaner Assembly Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, and 1.8L 2H0) (See: Air Cleaner Housing > Removal and Replacement).
3. Remove the camshaft cover. Refer to Camshaft Cover Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, 1.8L 2H0, and LUW) (See: Valve Cover > Removal and Replacement).
4. Remove the drive belt tensioner. Refer to Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement (See: Drive Belt Tensioner > Removal and Replacement).
5. Remove the timing belt. Refer to Timing Belt Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, 1.8L 2H0, and LUW) (See: Timing Belt > Removal and Replacement).
6. Remove the timing belt idler pulley. Refer to Timing Belt Idler Pulley Removal (See: Engine > Overhaul).

7. Set the crankshaft in direction of engine rotation to 60 before TDC. Use the EN-45059 - meter and the crankshaft balancer bolt.
8. Remove the crankshaft sprocket. Refer to Crankshaft Sprocket Removal (See: Engine > Overhaul).
9. Lower the vehicle.
10. Remove the engine mount bracket. Refer to Engine Mount Bracket Replacement (See: Engine Mount > Removal and Replacement > Engine Mount Bracket Replacement).

12. Remove the center front timing belt cover (1).
13. Remove the tensioner bolt (1).
14. Remove the timing belt tensioner (2).
Note: Note the arrows.

15. Turn the camshaft by the hexagon until the groove on the end of the camshafts is horizontal.
16. Install the EN-6628-A - locking tool (1).
17. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle (See: Vehicle Lifting > Procedures > Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle).

Note: Some engine oil will run out of the camshaft and the camshaft position actuator adjuster. That is the reason for the removal of the whole timing assembly.

18. Place a collecting basin underneath the vehicle.

19. Remove the camshaft position actuator adjuster closure bolt (1) of the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster and/or the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster (3).
20. Remove the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster bolt and/or the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster bolt (2).

Note: A second person is required. Counterhold against the hexagon of corresponding camshaft with a open-ended wrench.

21. Remove the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster and/or the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster (3).

Installation Procedure

Note: If the cover is contaminated with oil, you have to clean it close.

Note: A second person is required. Counterhold against the hexagon of corresponding camshaft with a open-ended wrench.

1. Install intake camshaft position actuator adjuster and/or the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster (3).
2. Install the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster bolt and/or the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster bolt (2).

3. Install the EN-6340 - locking tool into the camshaft position actuator adjusters.

Note: The spot type marking (4) on the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster does not correspond to the groove of EN-6340-left during this process but must be somewhat above as shown.

1. Install the EN-6340-left - locking tool (1) in the camshaft position actuator adjusters as shown.

Note: The spot type marking (3) on the exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster must correspond to the groove on EN-6340-right.

2. Install the EN-6340-right - locking tool (2) in the camshaft position actuator adjusters as shown.

Caution: Refer to Fastener Caution (See: Vehicle > Vehicle Damage Warnings > Fastener Caution).

Note: A second person is required. Counterhold at the camshaft hexagon.

4. Tighten the intake camshaft position actuator adjuster or exhaust camshaft position actuator adjuster bolts to 65 Nm (48 lb ft) + 120 + 15 use the EN-45059 - meter.

Note: Install a NEW seal ring.

5. Install camshaft closure bolt and tighten to 30 Nm (22 lb ft).
6. Remove the EN-6628-A - locking tool.

7. Clean the timing belt tensioner thread.
8. Install the timing belt tensioner (2) and tighten the NEW timing belt tensioner bolt (1) to 20 Nm (15 lb ft).

9. Install the timing belt center front cover (1) to the timing belt rear cover at 2 locations.
10. Install the engine mount bracket. Refer to Engine Mount Bracket Replacement (See: Engine Mount > Removal and Replacement > Engine Mount Bracket Replacement).
11. Raise the vehicle.
12. Install the crankshaft sprocket. Refer to Crankshaft Sprocket Installation (See: Engine > Overhaul).

]13. Set the crankshaft in the direction of engine rotation to TDC. Use the crankshaft balancer bolt.
14. Install the timing belt idler pulley. Refer to Timing Belt Idler Pulley Installation (See: Engine > Overhaul).
15. Install the timing belt. Refer to Timing Belt Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, 1.8L 2H0, and LUW) (See: Timing Belt > Removal and Replacement).
16. Install the drive belt tensioner. Refer to Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement (See: Drive Belt Tensioner > Removal and Replacement).
17. Install the camshaft cover. Refer to Camshaft Cover Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, 1.8L 2H0, and LUW) (See: Valve Cover > Removal and Replacement).
18. Install the air cleaner housing. Refer to Air Cleaner Assembly Replacement (1.6L LDE, LXV, and 1.8L 2H0) (See: Air Cleaner Housing > Removal and Replacement).

Hi, I have done everything that you had provided in the instructions, but the same problem is happening once we turn on the car. Still getting code p0017 and p0016. I hope the video attached helps with my problem?

Hi and thanks for the video. It sounds like the camshaft position actuator solenoid valve is starving components for oil. Was everything clean when you put together? You may want to remove the solenoid valve and make sure nothing is restricting oil pressure.

I attached a picture of the components I am discussing. Take a look. Also, if you remove them, confirm that the ports are not plugged.

I am going to ask another tech to listen to your video and get his input. You may see a response from either me or Ken.

Let me know.

Yep, I agree with Joe, it sounds like low oil pressure/flow. Please remove the valve to check for blockage, Also a clogged oil pump pickup screen will cause this as well.

Okay update, we took out the sensor valves and cleaned them. Both codes went away but the timing valve selinoids are making noise still?

Honestly, I think the adjuster may have been damaged. Was there an oil blockage? Hopefully Ken will jump in here with his ideas.

What is the adjuster and is it still drive able or will it create more damage?

Also, when the car is turned on we took the sensor of in the right valve and noticed that it makes a louder tapping noise. But for the left side it did not really get that much higher in noise. The check engine light never came on as well.

I am not sure if there was an oil blockage but there was tiny debris in the screen. After it was cleaned the idle came down a little bit, just that tapping noise is coming from in between where the black sleeve goes behind the solenoid.

It sounds like the actuators themselves need to be replaced. I would take it apart to check for worn parts that will make that noise. Does the engine have fresh oil in it?

We replaced the sleeves and checked for worn parts. Yeah I did an oil change last month but has been down for almost four weeks now.

The two black sleeves that go inside the camshaft where the two gasket seals are on the actuators.

I believe Ken is referring the the actuators. Also, and I am sorry, I meant to say actuator above and not adjuster.
