Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Nissan Altima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles
About 6 months ago my car starting making an awful ticking noise. I had to replace the tensioners for the timing chains on the camshafts. It was my first time ever doing a job like that. I replaced the water pump and all chain guides and tensioners so there would not be any future problems. When the job was finished my check engine light came on. The code it read was code P1111-"Intake Valve Timing Circuit Bank 1" I deleted the code thinking it might have triggered while I was working on the car. Well about a week later it came back on and will not turn off. I talked to a mechanic at Nissan and he said I needed to replace the "valve assembly solenoid valve timing control." Im not exactly sure what this is or where it is located. I am hoping it is not back inside of the timing chain cover! I would appreciate some good advice. Was also wondering if anyone knows where I can get a print out of the whole repair process. Thanks much
have the same problem?
