WE REPLACED THE HEAD GASKET WE USED YOUR TIMING MARKS WE DID NOT PULL THE ENGIINE RUNS SMOOTH THEN SURGES CK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON CODE PO 366 NEED HELP

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ANY INFORMATION ON WHY CODE PO 366 NO LIGHTS WERE ON BEFORE
Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
Hi again..

OK - Code P0366 is for the cam shaft sensor..

Either, a wiring fault -connections or the sensor itself faulty.

Check the wiring to it doe damage - and indeed that it is connected.. and connected correctly before replacing the sensor.

I hope that helps you further -

Best Rgds, MIKE.

THE VOLTAGE TO THE CAM SENSORS ARE WITH IN SPECS IS IT POSSIBLE THE TIMING IS STILL OFF RUNS SMOOTH THEN RUNS ROUGH GIVE IT GAS AND IT RUNS SMOOTH

Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
HI again..

I very much doubt - dont see how the timing is off , not if you have followed the above instructions fully and to the letter. If you havn't , you will have to re check it.

Other than that , you may have voltage to the sensor, but if its faulty in itself for whatever reason, it will need replacing.

Im afraid I don't have any other test data or anything on the Q7...

Best Rgds,... MIKE.
