codes p0507 ,p0171 ,p0016 how do i repair these codes waiting on a answer please
Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.
looking up some info for you now....
in the meantime, can you describe any drivability problems with the car?
ok, got the codes.....the three together are a little worrisome
especially the cam position code
last wk it some diferent misfire codes new plugs and coil packs installed
so P030x codes, and now these
how many miles on the car?
constant misfire/rough running going on?
it semms to run fine now mis fire seems to disappeared
I've got a gut feeling that you've got yourself a cam timing problem
meaning a chain problem
since sunday these codes three codes came up twice
it's possible to physically check cam timing without removing the transmission, but if timing is off, the transmission will have to be removed
but there are no timing marks, so the cam locking tools will be necessary
i was hoping that wasnt the problem i was hoping for vacum leak or fuel pressure reg ulator
the cam code is the major indicator here
what does it usally costs to fix
showing an implausible relationship between the intake cam and crank
the last one I did came in at $2200, but I'm usually a bit cheaper than the dealer and most other independent shops
and I always to both chains, both tensioners, and all rails
thats about what they told me
sorry about the news. Long job
yeah thats my luck
it does have two chains correct
yes, upper and lower. Here's a great source for a replacement kit: http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-Jetta_V--2.5/Engine/Timing/Timing_Chain_Kit/ES2207809/
is that where i can order the whole kit
picture of the last one I did (trans removed, obviously)
It's interesting, but time consuming
eight to ten hrs
That's a conservative labor time, at least labor charge anyway
what if code p0016 goes away
Trans flat rate remove/replace is 6.5 hours and chain job is 4.9
most shops bump those times up a bit
if 0016 goes away, again, my gut says it will come back
too many chain issues on the 05-06 cars to hope for anything different
ok just wishing
hopefully this at least helped with clarification
what causes this issue so much
yes it did thanks alot
the issue is caused by parts that weren't stress-tested enough before being released to the public
were the new chains tested
honestly, I don't know if the new parts are any better than the old parts
