with this code set it is very cut and dry to the timing chain being off or too loose or has jumped

the front cover needs to come off and the timing marks to chain need to be checked the odds are the timing chain will be off and need to be replaced

  1. Inspect the engine front cover area, or review the service history of the vehicle for any recent repairs involving the timing chain, timing chain tensioner, camshaft, crankshaft, camshaft actuator, or sprockets.
    • If recent repairs were made, refer to Timing Chain and Sprockets Replacement (LC9/LMG/LY2/LY5) Timing Chain and Sprockets Replacement (LY6/L76/L92), and inspect the timing chain, timing chain tensioner, and both sprockets for proper timing alignment or indexing.
  1. Remove the engine front cover, Refer to Timing Chain and Sprockets Cleaning and Inspection.
    • If any components are worn or damage, replace as necessary.
