I need to confirm your following the correct timing steps. Open the file and look over the steps below and let me know if your doing everything right. Also what brought on this repair in the first place and list all of the repairs you did. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris

Can I get that sync code that is stored. It seems its not being caused by the chain timing.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
sets p0340 only with bank 1 cam retarded 2 teeth.timed straight up no code.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
Have you done the steps shown in the files below. I am leaning most towards a VCT solenoid bad or lack of oil flow to the cam timing components to blame here.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it's not does not have vct.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
My bad, I looked up a 5.4, not the 6.8. I double checked the code and tests to make sure those were right for the 6.8, did you do those tests. Have you monitor the cam and crank sensor signals while running to see if there is ever a hiccup from possibly a damaged tooth causing a reading issue?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
all gears are and crank signals are fine all the time.only thought is because i have to retard cam 2 teeth that it to far apart to sync.when retarded 1 tooth stays in sync but has half the contribution.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
Is there a chance someone has installed different gears or cams in the vehicle?Did you complete the prior diag steps I sent?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
had to change cam gear.the cam sensor pin and timing mark are same as old gear.yes on diag. steps
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
The only thing I can see left to blame would be the PCM in this case being that it's in time and assuming the parts installed were OEM Ford. I believe it's the computer because it makes this code on its own from comparing the CKP and CMP sensor readings.

could i call you.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 years ago.
Sorry I do not do phone calls. I can opt out though and allow another to assist you. There is a fee for a phone call and there may be a wait time before another chooses to make that call.
