Hello! Welcome to justanswer!


What code are you receiving exactly?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
p0011 cam timing over advanced bank 1
Ok, the bank 1 VANOS unit on the camshaft is bad or stuck. You may need to replace it to get rid of the code. Do you need the procedures to replace it?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I already replaced the vanos solenoid and both cam sensors and still get code

Right, the sensors and solenoid were always ok. The adjuster on the end of the cam is bad.
