Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and other repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there, and to be honest with today's electronics a scantool may very well be needed to retrieve the codes or to monitor data to see what's going on...

What is the actual P code that is setting? P0016? Also did you use OEM sensors or aftermarket ones? Can I get the last 8 of your VIN number?

Talk soon,

It was a P0016 code . We did put aftermarket sensors in. Borg Warner brands. Last four digits in vin code is 5815 We also got another code later on which was a P000B Cam phaser code . I tried the cleaning function with my Snap-On Solus scanner but the P0016 code came back. The P000B code did not come back. I have a sneaky feeling that the cam phaser solenoid is where the problem is. That's what puts the cam &crank sensors in sink doesn't it? What do you think. You could call me on my cell if you'd like or I could call you.(###) ###-####
