Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** engine do you have? Do you know the actual code number? Thanks.
I see the previous expert opened up the question, so let me see if I can help.
Can you cycle the key 3 times to the On position and tell me what codes show up in the odometer? I'd really like to know the actual P code to get an idea of what's going on.. Was the sensor a new OEM sensor or a aftermarket one from Napa?
Thanks for the reply!!
Ok the P0016 is CAM/CRANK difference and a bad sensor or jumped timing can cause it.. Do you hear any noises in the timing cover area? Has any timing chain work been done? Also the P0456 is a Small Evap leak and the P0305 is a cylinder #5 misfire, but the issues your experiencing it due to the P0016 when is what we need to repair.. The diagnostic test that goes with the P0016 code will require you to backprobe the camshaft and crankshaft sensors to watch the patten with a scope so if you don't have any of that test equipment then your only option is to try a new camshaft sensor and I would advise to use a OEM sensor because I have had ton's of bad aftermarket sensors right out of the box.. If a new camshaft sensor doesn't fix it then you will need to remove the timing cover to inspect to see if it's jumped timing..
If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!Have a great day,Brad
If you don't hear any noises or you haven't done any timing work recently then it's likely a bad camshaft sensor...
