I replaced the camshaft positon sensor on my 2007 Kia Optima 2.4 L and I am still getting P011 error code
Country: United StatesMake: KiaModel: 2007 Kia Optima 2.4Engine: 2.4L
I am getting a P011 camshaft error code. I replaced the camshaft sensor still gettingit. What could be the problem.
Hello and welcome
I'm going to try to help out.
What is the complete code? It should be 4 digital code
I also need to know did you get the sensor from the dealer or aftermarket ?
It was a Kia camshaft sensor from the dealer the code is P0011
Let me check
I'm looking at the schematic , please hold
Three things that I want you to inspect.
Do you have enough engine oil?
#2 check the camshaft gear
I want you to check if the camshaft gear is missing a tooth.
Yes changed oil it is full. Camshaft gear was fine.
Car runs fine.
The check engine is telling there is a problem with the timing.
General Description The CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) system is installed to the chain sprocket of the exhaust camshaft. There is no variation in valve timing of the exhaust cam because the exhaust camshaft is driven by the timing belt. The timing of the intake cam is varied by the relative operation the CVVT vane to the housing. The CVVT controller regulates the intake camshaft angle using oil pressure through the OCV (Oil Control Valve). As result, the relative position between the camshaft and the crankshaft becomes optimal, and the engine torque improves, fuel economy improves, exhaust emissions decrease by changing the valve open/close timing of the intake camshaft.DTC Description This diagnosis checks the camshaft position plausibility whether the expected range plus some margin is not violated that might be caused by a wrong engine repair, or a chain/belt misalignment. DTC P0016 is set when actual camshaft position is too much retarded or advanced than full retard position or full advance position. To continue the adjustment in such case could lead to a damage of the engine by hitting the valves with the piston.
This is what P0011 code .
You will need a scope and a scanner to see the sine wave.
The code is telling you that there is cam timing issue with the crank.

A bad cam sprocket can be seen in a scanner like the picture I posted. It can pinpoint what is exactly happening with the cam and crank timing in wave form.
